If you, like us, are staying in town to enjoy LA's many July 4th sales, Amazon has rounded up a few locally filmed flicks for Angelenos to watch in-between shopping jaunts. While some of these are cult LA faves (Pulp Fiction, 500 Days of Summer), some might surprise you (hey, No Strings Attached). If you prefer to stick to the obvious, there's always the unlisted Clueless and Troop Beverly Hills.
