Beefcake in the Home of Happiness
Fans claim Denton, Ohio, because Janet is shown with a copy of The Cleveland Plain Dealer, but there is no Denton in Ohio (the exterior shots were all filmed in England).
Denton, Texas residents are proud of their association with RHPS (and other films with a Denton connection, such as What's Eating Gilbert Grape and Benji). It's been playing almost continuously since 1975, and scholars at the University of North Texas write papers on it.
Lots of high schools. Denton is surrounded by tiny, ritzy suburbs, like Double Oak ("The Best Little City in Texas!")
Flower Mound. Imagine spending your entire adult life telling people "I'm from Flower Mound, Texas."
Lantana, "an upscale census-designated place and master-planned community originally developed by Republic Property Group."
Quite a town slogan.
