Oh yes, there is. You have to install a custom firmware on your psp, so you can use the "fake region" options to play movie regardless of regions. 

It's not too difficult actually, but you need some basic knowledge about it. I am giving you the links to show you how to downgrade/ install custom firmware onto your psp. Maybe you can give a try. Feel free to ask me any questions about that.

I have a psp but it is restricted to region code 2 but i live in the usa and only have region 1 can i re-code for region 1 thanks

you really can't recode to a different region. but there is a process where you install custom firm ware (cfm) that overides all region. meaning that you'll be able to play all different region games, movies, and download games going back to the nes, sega, gameboy, etc. doing this will void warranty and you could brick your psp. which causes your psp to not work.
if u are intrested you can check youtube and look for "psp cfw"
if you are not intrested your only bet is to sell it off and buy another with region 1 codeing

Psp region code is incorrect on a movie what do i do?

to cut down on piracy sony put region coding on the games and the systems. what that means is that if you buy a psp in the u.s. you'll only be able to play games that are for the u.s market and same for the movies. its just like how the dvd players and region coded so that u can only play the same region movies. you may want to try downloading that movie since downloaded movies are not region coded.

How can i change the regio code on my psp

Depending on what country your system is made in it will have a certain region code. Most movies are also region coded and if those region codes do not match then you cannot play that movie. You cannot change the region code on any system unless it is opened up and modified

Region codes

PSP is a region free device that it is capable of playing media purchased anywhere in the world. However, the decision to make games and movies region specific is made by the publisher of each title and as a result some Universal Media Discs may not work on a PSP purchased in a different country.
Please ensure that you check each piece of software and UMD films for compatibility with your PSP before purchase.

PSP region code

Yes, US movies are region 1 and China and Southeast Asian markets are region 3. This is supposedly to keep piracy low but considering you can't even burn UMDs yet that's kind of ridiculous. Go to
to find a mpeg4 converter for UMDs or else you could get a new region 1 drive and flashing your bios. There's talk in the air about Sony releasing it's movies all regions from here on out due to this problem.
