Why anyone would pretend to have seen a movie I'm not sure - no one thinks better of you because of a movie related lie, I think that's still exclusively book fib territory - but a British video rental service found that 80% of those surveyed had lied about a movie they claimed to have seen, with approximately 30% saying they had stretched the truth about having seen The Godfather. This was a survey of British people, so who knows what to say about their taste in films, but I'd hope that Americans picked something a little less essential to the history of cinema to fake-see. Titanic, maybe? Forrest Gump?
