I don't know what I'm doing wrong here. I just want to get back top rated movies that are relevant to the USA. Apparently no one else has this problem. I'm getting back movies from India and Japan that I have never heard of. Can someone please help me?! I plan on doing the same thing with people and popular movies. Just USA actors and movies please. Not from other countries.

Any movie, from any country in the world, that has, here in the TMDb, a date of exhibition in the USA.

I think you need to use the append_to_response function with a parameter, for example, production_countries

See here https://developers.themoviedb.org/3/movies/get-movie-details

I have not used it that way, so I can not help much.

Hi @CarterChilds,

Unfortunately, there isn't really a way to do this right now. You could use the certification filters on disvover but you'll be limited to movies that have a US certification added. Example:

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/discover/movie?api_key=###&certification.lte=R&certification_country=US

If that's enough for you, you can add in any of the other discover filters to craft a custom query (sorting by rating, adding a min vote, etc...)

The (most likely?) better option would be an open ticket that I have, which is to add a filter for production country.
