I Am the Movie is the first full-length album by the American rock band Motion City Soundtrack. It was released independently in 2002, and was remastered and re-released with four new tracks by Epitaph Records in June 2003.

Three different versions of this album exist. The original, unsigned release had eleven tracks. Four new tracks (marked with a *) were added for the Epitaph release. These new tracks replaced "1000 Paper Cranes", which is not found in the regular version (but is included as a "bonus track" on the vinyl LP, briefly available from the band's website, and on the Japanese import).

The first two versions of the album were housed in 5" floppy discs and their respective paper sleeves. The second floppy disc release also contains a credit card with a track listing.
