I understand why the plot key-words on the film details page are not alphabetized, as they reflect the most generic terms. However, it would be great if the plot key-words listed on the "view all plot key words" page were alphabetized. This would greatly facilitate the making of viewing list. For example, I am currently building a veiwing list with specific criteria. When considering "Paris, Je T'aime", I must wade through 265 plot key-words. It would really speed up my work if I could scan right down to the words for which I am searching.

Yeah! That would be great! What a great idea! This guy is right...and really smart...and good-looking, too. You should do what he says.

I don't know. Sounds like work to me. Granted, the guy is smart and good-looking (and I think he mentioned being tall), but he seems a bit needy. On the other hand, he probably is a really great guy doing important stuff. If the plot key words were alphabetized, we would probably get credit in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech

I agree. This is an important modification that IMDb should make to ensure survival of the entire movie-searching public, including the incredibly smart, good-looking, tall, and suave (yes, suave) author of the topic. Everyone start commenting so IMDb pays attention. Of course, commenting positively about this topic means you must be smart, sexy, and highly-sophisticated people yourself...

If you are using Firefox (or, possibly, Chrome) there is a third party option to display keywords alphabetically in titles.

You will first need to install Greasemonkey from the Firefox add-ons page. Once you have this installed, you can then install IMDb Plot Keywords alphabetizer by C_G

This is, of course, at your own risk; however, I have been using his scripts for several years now, and have never had a major problem.

Note: If you have this installed, the Keyword list on the Keywords page will display in a single (alphabetized) column, rather than the newer 2-column version'
