Desperate for tourism, hundreds of small towns across the U.S.A. claim the "world's largest" something from 15-foot fiberglass strawberries to 40-foot concrete pheasants. Odd, funny and sometimes beautiful, the statues stand as testaments to the uniqueness and importance - the largeness - that all people feel, and need to feel, about their communities and their own existence.

this review is from: World's Largest (DVD)
A delightful road movie that takes you along as it visits the places and people (oh, the people!) who host the world's (or more precisely, America's) largest things. I want to see it again and show it to my daughters. Like its subject matter, this film is awesome.
