If you've found a review that violates our guidelines, please click "Report This" at the bottom of the review and select the appropriate reason from the list then click submit. We will not remove a review unless it violates our guidelines. Due to the volume of traffic, we are unable to follow up on individual reports.


If you want us to investigate potential abuse, please provide the URL to the exact user review and include the author's name and review's summary via our community platform Get Satisfaction. 


Tracking the Contribution

You can track the status of your update or report and if it has not been approved, we'll tell you the reason why.

This feature can be accessed via the 'View the status of your contribution' button, which has been added to the IMDb update receipt email you will have received. 

Clicking this button will take you to IMDb Contributor, our new contribution specific site where you will be shown the status of your request.
