When the Book Club women go to disrupt the domestic life of their nemesis, Lillian Miller, one of them notes, "Look at that house - it's perfect." The house used for the scene is a Universal Studios back lot Wisteria Lane (_Desperate Housewives_) house, also used (before its renovation in 1988 and 1996) as the "new" house for the Cleaver family in _Leave It To Beaver_ (Seasons 3-6, 1959-63). An interesting choice for the "perfect house". See more
