OVERRATED

The endurance of 'Catfish': Never mind that the alleged "twist" of this talked-about 2010 documentary is something anyone who's used the Internet figures out in roughly 24 hours — that people are not always who they say — and consider its filmmakers (Ariel Schulman, left, and Henry Joost) recently signed a development deal with MTV for a series on people using alternate identities online. Good on them for finding success, but will they have enough time to document roughly 80% of the Internet?
