Movie Info

As conceived, written, directed, and produced by Fred Ashman, this unabashedly patriotic, flag-waving film celebrates Americana and the elements of the United States that make it a unique and dynamic country -- from its ethnic, religious, and ideological tolerance to its peerless emphasis on educational opportunity. In addition to featuring picturesque American scenery and patriotic music on the soundtrack, the film interweaves five dramatic vignettes, each relaying the story of an extraordinary American citizen. The cast includes Marc McClure (Superman: The Movie), James B. Sikking (Made of Honor), Ken Howard (In Her Shoes), and Yakov Smirnoff (Brewster's Millions).

  • It seems more like an hour-and-a-half-long infomercial for America than a narrative film or documentary. Like something you might hallucinate on Flag Day.

  • A corporate-sponsored, feature-length infomercial on behalf of the core entrepreneurial values of the U.S. of A., Proud American combines unabashed hokiness with relentless oversimplification.

  • Aside from a few, thankfully, professionally acted performances, it too often carries the preachy, stilted aura of something you'd see in civics class or at a trade show.

  • Aspires to be inspirational, but suffers from its shameless, jackhammer-style manipulation.

  • Contrived, corny and over-simplistic.

  • If America's even half as great as writer-producer-director Fred Ashman's almost unfathomably cheesy movie insists, her citizens will rise up to destroy this bathetic rubbish -- or at least make a pitilessly derided cult sensation of it.
