Tricky tricky - using Fargo for Minnesota is just plain cruel. Yes, a very large portion of the action takes place there, but the memorable climax involving the wood chipper and the reason behind the film's title most definitely are in North Dakota. If you're looking for a less controversial clue, you could use the Mighty Ducks or Grumpy Old Men.

Good quiz. Time limit is a little tight. I got 28 before the timer ran out. Some overlap with my Books by State quiz. I wish I could add the little state abbreviations boxes on the right that would make it easier.

I had to google it, but I remember that. Great movie about a guy making a horrible movie. His neckbeard best buddy is low key hilarious. Now that the internet is upon us I'm sure that's where he is 24/7.

This is pretty much impossible to finish without memorising the answers. I guess if you had too much time though, you could just go through each answers with each state until you got them all.

Though the city in the story is definitely Wilmington, DE, I'm sure they never reveal that in the movie Fight Club. They even say in the DVD commentary they were trying to avoid lawsuits. And the skyline they blow up at the end is not from any city, it's actually a collection of buildings owned by the film studio, digitally inserted into the same scene.

Yet they mention getting transferred from Thomaston, the Maine State Prison built in the 1820s and used until about 20 years ago. Also they go into flop houses in Portland and Andy buries the money in Buxton.
