But, as some people would notice later, there are some UnfortunateImplications in including the word "American" as some sort of superlative; thus, much like {{Eagleland}}, this trope has a dark underbelly. It is just as likely that you'll see an American Title in an ironic fashion, subverting the original meanings, or revealing the darker undersides of the bright ideology. This is often done in reference to the USA's dark past and/or the more controversial aspects of American culture and politics.

Compare ItCameFromBeverlyHills

Contrast EagleLand - this trope refers to titles that try to induce that American idea...''in America''!

* ''Film/DayForNight'' is named after the movie-making trick that TV Tropes calls HollywoodDarkness, but it's a French film, and the French title uses the French film term for "day for night", namely, "Nuit Américaine."
