The 10 Films People Most Lie About Seeing: What Classic Movie Have You Pretended to See?

I'm frequently embarrassed, as someone who purports to be a "film critic," when someone asks me if I've seen a particular classic movie and I have to own up to not having seen it yet. You know, I'd never seen The Sting until last week, and I have no idea how I managed to live so long and without having seen that. That's a criminal omission, as is Blade Runner, the movie I've been planning to see for 20 years but just never get around to doing so. I will. It's next on my list (granted, it's been next on my list for the better part of the last decade).

Anyway, I don't actually lie about having seen classics because people will inevitably want an opinion, and the only thing more embarrassing for a "film critic" than not having seen a particular classic is getting caught lying about seeing a classic. Critics have been fired for lesser offenses.

But I'm sure many of you have lied about seeing a classic. And LOVEFiLM, a British rental service also responsible for the list of the Ten Most Paused Movie Moments, conducted a poll of its subscribers to learn which movies they lied most often about seeing. The top ten is below, and why would you like about seeing Goodfellas? Come on, just watch it.

You're all free in the comments to own up to your own lies.


1. The Godfather (30 percent)
2. Casablanca (13 percent)
3. Taxi Driver (11 percent)
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey (9 percent)
5. Reservoir Dogs (8 percent)
6. This Is Spinal Tap (7 percent)
7. Apocalypse Now (6 percent)
8. Goodfellas (5 percent)
8. Blade Runner (5 percent)
10. The Great Escape (4 percent)
