Made in U.S.A. is a 1987 American crime drama / black comedy film directed by Ken Friedman from a screenplay by Zbigniew Kempinski. The film stars Adrian Pasdar and Chris Penn as two young men who decide to leave behind their working-class lives in the coal-mining country of Pennsylvania and travel to California. Along the way, they pick up a hitchhiker (Lori Singer) and embark on a crime spree. The soundtrack features several songs by the American band Sonic Youth, who in 1995 released an album (also titled Made in USA) of all the songs they had recorded for the film.

The release of the film was delayed because of a dispute over artistic control between Friedman and John Daly of Hemdale Films. Friedman first showed his version, without the permission of Hemdale, who held the copyright, at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival. Daly released the studio's version to video in 1989.
