Made in America is a 1993 comedy film released on May 28, 1993 by Warner Bros. starring Whoopi Goldberg and Ted Danson, and featuring Nia Long, Jennifer Tilly and Will Smith.



Zora Matthews (Long), whose mother, Sarah (Goldberg) conceived her with the aid of an anonymous sperm donor, discovers her father is a white man named Hal Jackson (Danson). This comes as a major shock to Sarah, who had explicitly requested a black donor. On top of that, Hal is very much the sleazy car saleman type and does not place a high value on intellect, which also clashes with Sarah's request for a man of intelligence to be the donor. The film revolves around Zora and her mother's rocky relationship with Jackson following the discovery of his ethnicity.


When the film opened in theaters on May 28, 1993, it grossed more than $12 million on its opening weekend. The film was released to more than 2,000 theaters and grossed nearly $50 million in the U.S. alone. Worldwide, the film earned more than $100 million. The film also started Grammy Award-winning rapper Will Smith's successful career as a film actor.


  • At the sperm bank, she asked for a tall, intelligent, black man. One out of three ain't bad.
