Saying goodbye in a movie phonecall

Maybe it's a silly question... or maybe not.
Why american series characters don't say goodbye when they end a phonecall?
I wonder if this is common, or only happen in the movies.
Is it not very unpolite?

    It's a movie thing, and yes we find it very funny once we think about it! :)

    Here's a nice little vlog about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwfIv5lZU5Y

    Which movies are you thinking of?

    I've always wondered this as well. I've never seen anyone in real life hang up without saying goodbye unless they were trying to be rude.
