Does ‘American Made’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

We’ll let you know if you’re safe to hit the bathroom once the credits roll

(Some light spoilers ahead for “American Made”)

It’s not just superhero movies that have a tendency to try to keep the audience in their seats past the end credits — lots of movies enjoy taking part in that trend, enough so that it’s hardly ever feels safe to bolt for the bathroom once the movie proper ends and the credits begin.

But worry not, we’ve got the answer you’re looking for right here. So should you stay in your seat when the credits for “American Made” roll, or can you head to the bathroom with confidence?

The answer is slightly complicated. No, “American Made” does not contain any new scenes after the credits start, but it does hide a fun payoff to a joke from early in the film near the end of the credits crawl.

Here’s where the spoilers come in, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet you might want to steer clear.

So near the end of the credits amidst the standard bits of legalese there’s a single line of text that references a map-related joke made by Tom Cruise’s Barry Seal. The joke came as Seal is discussing a new job his CIA handlers are having him do: delivering guns to the Contras in Nicaragua.

During this bit Seal is narrating over an image of a map of Central America, and he misidentifies which country is Nicaragua, putting that country’s name over Honduras. But then Seal catches himself, saying that, whoops, that’s actually El Salvador (making a second mistake) and then correctly labeling which country is Nicaragua.

But the movie itself doesn’t correct Seal’s second error, saying labeling Honduras as El Salvador. That is, it doesn’t correct the error until that single line in the credits I just mentioned. That line reads: “Yes, we know that wasn’t actually El Salvador.”

So not a post-credits scene, but a fun punchline reserved for the end of the credits nonetheless.
