Who knew there were so many awesome movies filmed right here in Minnesota? Here's a list of 16 must-see flicks, including a bunch of fun Christmas movies.

I Am Not a Serial Killer

Not going to lie, I started watching this trailer and almost didn't finish this list, because I wanted to watch the movie so bad. How have I NOT watched this yet?

Young Adult

Who doesn't love a good Charlize Theron flick?

A Serious Man

The list started off so strong... Another that I haven't watched (probably never will... sorry, not sorry)


An oldie, but a goodie!


Bust out your best Minnesotan accent, doncha know?

Grumpy Old Men

The city of Wabasha is very proud to be the filming location for "Grumpy Old Men." They celebrate it every year with Grumpy Old Men Festival.

Purple Rain

Remembering the man, the myth, the legend.

The Mighty Ducks

Perhaps the best sports movie of all time?

The Good Son

Lots of creepy movies filmed here apparently. Who knew?

Beautiful Girls

Lots of big names in this classic, fun film!

Sweet Land

Life in rural Minnesota.

North Country

Charlize nails the Minnesota accent!

A Prairie Home Companion

A movie about a radio show? Sounds right up my alley.


Jingle All The Way

We love watching classics with the kiddo! This is a must-add to the watchlist.

New in Town

"Holy mother!" LOL... Exactly how I feel every time I walk into the bitter cold.

A Chance of Snow

Corny, but cute! My favorite type of Christmas movies.
