PURE RUMOR...

But I have been told that some scenes, like the house where he lives with his parents was filmed in Los Angeles...the reason for the palm trees... I personally never saw a palm tree in Minnesota.

Yeah... seriously, watch when he rides home (I think) on his motorcycle to find his mom outside the house crying... I think that is the most obvious palm tree scene.

I always thought that house looked like the Amityville house.

That was a "pick-up" scene. It was shot after the filming moved on to LA. You'll notice that they don't show her from the front. Wasn't actually the actress who played "mom".

The house that was used for outside scenes was indeed filmed in Minneapolis. Right across the street from a good friend of mine. If you really want to see it next time you're in Twin Town, it's between 34th and 35th streets on Snelling avenue south (Snelling is between Hiawatha and Minnehaha Aves.) Peep the west side of Snelling on the 34th end of the block.
