Richmond Hosts Movie Crew Filming "The Sweetest Thing"
June 5, 2001
For the past couple of days, Richmond has provided the location for shooting a Columbia Pictures movie, entitled “The Sweetest Thing,” starring Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate. The film is a lighthearted romantic comedy about a young successful woman paying the field, but really looking for the right man. The characters, two city girls, Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate, live in San Francisco but head for the “country” to catch up to a prospective boyfriend. On the way, the girls have a car wash catastrophe and need to buy new clothes in town. Point Richmond was turned into a village called “Somerset” for the film. The cast and hundreds of supporting crew with a huge amount of equipment and a hundred vehicles have taken over Point Richmond for the shoot.
