50 States, 50 Essential Movies

"Want to see what America has to offer, but you're low on time, as well as the desire to put on pants and leave the house? Then let the movies be your eyes into the big country, and Rotten Tomatoes your guide! We've put together a list we're calling 50 States, 50 Essential Movies: Each state gets one iconic movie that best represents what it has to offer, whether it's the natural beauty, the people, the architecture, key moments in the country's history, or, more likely, a combination of it all."
"GIVE YOUR LOCAL TOURISM BOARD THE NIGHT OFF: WE FOUND THE GREAT, ICONIC MOVIE SET – AND FILMED – IN EVERY STATE."
