The Best Movie That Takes Place in Every State

"What is the best movie in every state? We gave ourselves a few criteria to guide our choices, though any ranking based on human-made borders is bound to be fraught with debate and uncertainty. With that proviso, we tried to select movies that took place mainly in a given state, which meant road trip classics (Easy Rider or Thelma and Louise come to mind) won't show up anywhere. We also picked films that represent a state's place in the nation's collective consciousness -- you probably don't think "New Hampshire!" when someone mentions Jumanji."
