I am pretty sure that is a movie that really made me mad. When a movie says it is based on true events, and shows the "real" so-and-so then the
actor, we take them at their word. I sensed something was off because if there really was footage of the events in the movie, I thought I would have
seen them before and the incident would have been more widely known. But I thought the story must have been exaggerated, not completely made up. I
didn't think they would say it's true if it wasn't.
The next day, after a rare sleepless night, I told my co-workers I had been terribly disturbed and scared by a movie that was a true story. I googled
the movie and felt both anger and embarrassment. I had just urged them to see the movie and now I had to go warn them not to see it, because I had
been duped. I'm against over-regulation by gov't, but I do think there should be industry-enforced standards that guard against such things.
If you recall, the movie Fargo claimed to be based on true events, but it wasn't. Consequently, the authorities are constantly coming across people
looking for buried treasure. To me, it's irresponsible on the part of the filmmakers. You can't say a broadcast is live if it isn't, so you
shouldn't be able to say a story is true if it isn't!

Hahaha. Get out of here!?!
Well, in my defense my husband told me it was, and.... I believed him. Lol
I am not gullible nor am i blonde. Just so you all know
Don't take it so hard, lots of people believed it was based on true events because that is exactly how they promoted it. It was in the ads and on the
posters; it just turned out to not be true. I know people that still think The Blair Witch was real and its not that they are super gullible, they
just do not mass feed upon media so they hear a little something and nothing else so they believe that little something.
The only thing I could come up with for the OP was 1994's Roswell the UFO coverup and I doubt that is what they are looking for.
