    If you added it from your computer it is probably listed as a home video. There is an option in there and then you can change it to movie.

    How did you get the movie on your iPad?

    If you synced it from iTunes it should show up under Library>Downloaded.

    If you're not sure how to view your movie, use iPad search to find it: From the Home screen, swipe RIGHT. Look at the TOP of that page and you'll see the search bar. Type in the name of the movie. If the movie is on the iPad, the app required to view it should appear.
