You've seen 'The Godfather,' right? Of course, you say. The horse head in the bed. The shoot-out in the Italian restaurant. "Leave the gun, take the cannoli." You know it all by heart.

Unless, that is, you're among the film fans who've been lying about having seen the crime classic. According to a new U.K. poll, 30 percent of respondents confessed they've never actually seen the Oscar-winning film.

Like, 'The Godfather,' 'Casablanca' is another film that's so heavily quoted ("We'll always have Paris," etc.) and prevalent in pop culture that many people feel like they've seen it even if, as 13 percent admitted, their claims don't amount to a hill of beans.

Check out the rest of the "must-see" films that are really "must lie about seeing," among them two Martin Scorsese classics. OK, we get that you might not have the stomach for all that mob violence, but honestly, how hard it is it to watch the hilarious 'This Is Spinal Tap'? For shame, film fibbers!


1. 'The Godfather' (1972) 30 percent
2. 'Casablanca' (1942) 13 percent
3. 'Taxi Driver' (1976) 11 percent
4. '2001: A Space Odyssey' (1969) 9 percent
5. 'Reservoir Dogs' (1992) 8 percent
6. 'This Is Spinal Tap' (1984) 7 percent
7. 'Apocalypse Now' (1979) 6 percent
8. 'Goodfellas' (1990) 5 percent
8. 'Blade Runner' (1982) 5 percent
10. 'The Great Escape' (1963) 4 percent

Fess up, film fans. What movies do you lie about having seen?
