Movies shot in Boston

In preparation for our trip, wouldn't mind renting some movies that were shot in (or probably are set in) Boston. The only one I can come up with is Goodwill Hunting but there must be many.......

The opening shot of Mystic River is a good one.

Two movies which get it right for me are:

Love Story....Harvard Stadium and Square. The shots of the Charles River are awesome.

The Original Thomas Crown Affair with Steve McQeen.

There are several good minutes of him and Faye Dunaway shopping in Haymarket. Plenty of others as well.

As a kid, I remember being on the set of Thomas Crowne while scenes were being shot in Beverly.

I saw the movie for the first time last week on TV. I did notice that the bank's name on the sign indicated it was on Long Island, not in Beverly! I couldn't understand that, since the story clearly took place in Boston. I don't know where the Crane Beach scenes were "supposed" to take place.
