IMDB has started returning search results for any name I type in.
This is new behavior and it must stop.

Disgruntled: Can you explain the problem in more detail? I don't think I understand it.

If you can post screen captures here showing the results that are turning up that you think are wrong, that would be helpful.

I think I see his point.
The old search engine was more focused. The new one acts more like GOOGLE. It returns results that are shall we say based more on popularity rather than accuracy. Where is Will Smith on this search? Two Mary's are OK, but no third? A Marie?!! We get a Mary Richards in the MTM Show but no Mary Tyler Moore in Names?!!
And yes if you expand either category those names will be there. But the automatic first three are shall we say, a little hard to understand as to why those particular are the first?
And Lastly, the Movie Grown Ups, makes absolutely no sense at all on the surface as a search result!!!!!!!!!
