Larry Clark’s overlooked 2001 masterpiece “Bully” shot mostly in the suburban towns of Pembroke Pines and Hollywood, Florida. The film is based on true events, using the real neighborhoods (but not the actual locations) where the tragic events unfolded as a backdrop. These areas are relatively small and most of the filming locations are actually within minutes of each other.
Lisa, played by Rachel Miner, lives at this lakeside residence, when she begins dating Marty, played by the late Brad Renfro.
LOCATION: 2251 Dogwood Ct, Pembroke Pines, FL 33026
Lisa’s concerned friend Claudia works at this Pizza Hut, which is still in business.
LOCATION: 11091 Sheridan St, Hollywood, FL 33026
Donny, played by Michael Pitt and Derek, played by Daniel Franzese, hang out at this store, which was depicted as an arcade in the film. It can be found behind the Pizza Hut in the same shopping plaza.
LOCATION: 2505 N Hiatus Rd, Hollywood, FL 33026
Bobby, the titular bully played by Nick Stahl, lives at this house.

Derek, Lisa’s cousin, lives at this residence, which is similar looking to Lisa’s place.

What about the other Derek’s house played by Leo Fitzpatrick?
The one with the spinning camera shot? At the time I did these locations, I thought I found it and even photographed a location, 1801 NW 108th Ave, Pembroke Pines, FL 33026. However, when I went back to the film and took a closer look, I wasn’t so sure it was the correct location anymore. Some little details weren’t matching and there’s a few other homes in the area that also seemed plausible. Maybe your message will motivate me to pick up the trail.
