An IMDB search displays 12 movies named "Bingo."  Are any of these movies actually about Bingo?  Let's find out.

1991's "Bingo" is about a runaway circus dog who befriends a young boy who has trouble fitting in.  

Meanwhile, the 1974 Canadian flick called - you guessed it - "Bingo" is about a photographer engaged in a terrorist plot.

Most frighteningly, 1998's "Bingo" features a young man psychologically brutalized by circus characters into believing he is a clown.  Yikes!

The other "Bingo" movies are French comedies, Yugoslavian short films, and depict gigoloism as a means of making one's way through architecture school.  

Lesson learned: Just because a movie is called "Bingo," do not expect a movie about .... Bingo.
