That's one of my favourite films.

Not sure I'd want to live in any of those places, Logan does sound nice apart from the 70% Mormon population, but having Dolly as a neighbour might make up for it

I've had them knock on my door even.

And I've said this before. I went to school with a bunch of them in darkest Africa - they even had a temple in town - farming community, population must have been 3000 or so!!!!
