That is because the word "Movie" is one of the words in Internet Movie Db (IMDb)
That's just the way search engines are set up.

Technically it's not even false: some titles on IMDb have "Full movie" option and there are also original webisodes throughout the website. I guess it qualifies as a bare minimum for streaming service?..

The search results may return hyperlinks to IMDb title pages for movies that are not even available on IMDb Freedive. That is what I meant to convey.

It's not false advertising: some titles indeed have option to watch full movie for free on IMDb, although that is mostly the case with very old titles in public domain and independent projects.

... and most of all, it has to be advertising to be false advertising.  This sounds like a problem with whatever search engine is being used.
