I love watching movies, especially on chilly fall afternoons. And, honestly pretty much throughout the entire pandemic. I realized that I get so excited whenever a movie I'm watching makes any sort of reference to Minnesota...or better yet, St. Cloud. It's pretty awesome. So, I got to thinking, how many movies have been set in or have been filmed in Minnesota?
