The inclusion of some films on these criteria has been controversial, and the "American" content sometimes minimal. Lawrence of Arabia was directed by a Briton and first premiered in London, but qualified as an American film because it was produced by an American citizen. The Third Man was included because its executive producer and two stars were American. Both films were also chosen by the British Film Institute for its top 100 list. The African Queen was a production of Horizon Pictures, a British studio, but qualified as an American film because the two stars were American and the director was American.

On June 26, 1998, the Chicago Reader published an article by film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum. Titled "List-o-Mania: Or, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love American Movies," it offers a detailed response to the movies in the AFI list, and includes an alternate list of 100 American movies that Rosenbaum felt had been overlooked by the AFI. Rosenbaum chose to present this alternative list alphabetically, since to rank them according to merit would be "tantamount to ranking oranges over apples or declaring cherries superior to grapes." The AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movies (10th Anniversary Edition) list includes five titles from Rosenbaum's list, and the accompanying promotional poster lists the titles in alphabetical order.
