The 27 Constitutional Amendments Explained in Movies
Explaining the 27 amendments of the US Constitution by highlighting some of the best Constitution movies, with videos, for each of the Constitutional Amendments. Besides the freedoms promised in the Constitution, Americans have a lot to be proud of. Our BBQ is some of the most flavorful in the world. We were the first country to send people to the moon.

What are the greatest movies about the Constitution? This list of movies on Amendments pairs a film clip with each article of our Bill of Rights, the cornerstone of our American understanding of freedom, and then all the other amendments to our Constitution over the years.
