Complete list of movies in New Jersey

I am trying to find (or realize that non exists and create) a complete list of movies that take place in New Jersey. There are number of ways to interoperate that and while and list would be a great starting point what I consider ‘taking place in NJ’ means the story is placed in new jersey. Mall Rats would count since it’s about New Jersey yet not filmed there.

If any one knows of such a list please throw me the link. If not how about trying to help me create a complete list!

I know you can search imdb by polt but it cuts off after only 100 movies.

Thanks so much guys!

Okay, this is off the top of my head, not too many.

Palookaville
Copland
The Toxic Avenger
Class of Nuke 'Em High
School of Rock

Oh and some of Mallrats was filmed at the no longer existing US 1 Flea market.

And seriously I know it's a hassle but if you want the most complete list you will have to go to imdb and search, by city too.

Well just watched HellBoy last night and the headquarters is in Newark, which I thought was kind of funny.

Lockup= that was filmed in Rahway State, or now conviently named East Jersey state.

At the end of Ocean's 11(remake) they show George Clooney walking out of East Jersey state, then a brief down a slightly digitally altered Rahway ave.

Can't forget Scared Straight-another Rahway prison movie

Jersey Girl took place in New Jersey. It wasn't all filmed there, but the story was Jersey.
