Movie title: Vice Academy Part 3 (1991)

I can not pull this movie via search on IMDB.com. I do see this movie listed under the director's fimography, so it seems that it's on IMDB already.

Try to search for it without mentioning the year "(1991)".

Have you tried to search for "Vice Academy" only?

Yes, I've tried a number of things (that included). I just can't seem to get it to show up. I have a friend in VA (where I live) who is seeing the same problem.

For thuroughness sake, here's what I see when I search for "Vice Academy".

Unfortunately, I get the same results when I use Chrome (or to be more specific Chromium on Linux).

Yeah, sorry about that. The problem is not the browser.

I'm still looking for the issue.

I'll let you know once/if I find it.

This issue of "titles not appearing on search" is a well-known issue.

It's an IMDb bug. Many users have encountered it.

I guess, we have to wait for an admin to fix it.

No one will find it. "BEFORE" making ANY comment, I tried 6 ways from Sunday to have it come up in a search. No luck. As far as the "I'll let you know once/if I find it", you will not be able to keep that promise.
With the exact title "tt" it is viewable.
But on a standard search, expanded search or advanced search, it does not exist.
On a google search it is findable.


This is an issue that will have to be addressed by an IMDb staff member, Jeremy.


Bonefide.
A note.
Col Needham used to pull my replies such as yours and send me a reason for pulling them as not helpful.
Wanting to help is good.
But research first. Comment second.
I realized that several months after I started and had many of my comments removed.
Col is not here to pull comments anymore.
I'm passing on my wisdom to you.
Please be more informative.

It shows up if you enable adult titles/names in search. It is not clear why the other Vice Academy titles show up but this one does not. It does not seem to have the genre or keywords that I would expect to identify it as adult.

Owen it must have been labelled as X at one time, it's MPAA rating is R currently.
This will still require a fix by staff.

Great. How do I go about getting a fix from staff? Is there a ticketing system of any kind I should be using?

Jeremy McFarland,

You have to enable adult titles/names in your searches.

This is how you do it.

And he should not have to do it. It is NOT an adult title.

Did you not read what Owen said?

It does not seem to have the genre or keywords that I would expect to identify it as adult.

I have not seen the movie so cannot judge whether or not it should be considered sufficiently adult for the search restriction to apply. I have not seen the other movies in the series either so cannot say whether or not they ought to be considered adult for search purposes.

The title and cast perhaps suggest a more adult movie than is actually the case.

Just wondering about how long it usually takes staff to see threads like this one?

Staff has marked this "SOLVED" (See Above)
They consider this closed.
