    What do you mean by "realistic", almost all movies stretch reality for dramatic or comedic effect.

    I will say the most realistic movies about my state, (Texas), "Friday Night Lights", "The Last Picture Show" and "Urban Cowboy".

    When they were filming Urban Cowboy I was living in Pasadena Texas where they were filming, I hung out at Gilley's and had friends working in the refineries, the entire movie was almost like a depiction of an average weekend for us.

    I was born in Jersey, raised in Maryland.

    So basically any Kevin Smith movie would qualify for Jersey.

    Maryland has to be the Wire, but that's a TV show, not a movie.  I guess Patriot Games?  That was partially set in Annapolis, MD which is just south of my parent's house.  I recognized about a half dozen shooting locations.  There was a scene where Harrison Ford is being tailed as he leaves the Naval Academy that was right along the route my bus took to take me to high school.

    I thought "Do the Right Thing"  was the truest depiction of Brooklyn I've ever seen on film. 

    Clearly made by someone who understood and had lived in Brooklyn.
