I think that this not deserves to be on top 25 movie ever made...really ? A comedy show.. above 2001..back to the future..or all the movies ever made (except for 22). How can imdb Team can fix it and remove it from the list. 75% of votes are 10. Not realistic..hope the team delete it from the list as soon as possible

Could you provide the link to the list you are referring to?
And it is most likely a list created by a user. It is that users personal opinion.
It is NOT an official IMDb List.

It is in the top 250 at 23rd position .. between silence or the lambs and star wars. Okay...maybe it's a nice show.. but not like that.. btw here is the link: https://www.imdb.com/chart/top?ref_=n...

It does indeed not belong there.
It is not a movie.
It is a "stand up" comedy special.
Eddie Murphy: Raw is categorized as a Documentary.
Chris Rock: Bigger & Blacker  is categorized as a Documentary.
This non-movie needs a re-categorization.

In a wider sense of movie being any audio-visual medium which is what it stands for in IMDb, I'd say it is a movie. 

I'm not sure that a comedy special could or should be categorized as a documentary, because it involves acting in one form or another and it concentrates on fictional and semi-fictional events of comedy act itself.

Hi Nikolay,

The issue has been raised some weeks ago and IMDb staff confirmed that standup comedies should be categorized as Documentary. See https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/genres/GZDRMS6R742JRGAG?ref_=helpsrall#documentary

ok...i've already checked that thread but if IMDB wanted a real chart of the best movies have to drop it from the list. way back the staff did the same thing to another turkish film rated like 9.9. come on.. it's a title with fake ratings!

I see as IMDb plays a hidden game with the rating system sometimes. If they believe this serves for better, well, time will show...

CM101MMXI Fundamentals seems to be not seen elsewhere except Turkey. And this title is in Top 250 and Top 1000 again. Who should vote for this? I'm not going if I've not seen that. So, what effect they expect at the end of such "action"? To refresh the "1000 top voters" list? To see fake voters? To make some people crazy, or angry?.. Was it worthy?

Sorry to disagree with all  but a movie has some form of plot.
I have now looked up 25 titles from Pryor, Rock, Murphy, Andrew Dice Clay and a few others.
They are all categorized as Documentaries

I think the whole French New Wave would disagree with the statement that a movie has to have some form of plot.

i'm up to every kind of movies and cinema.. i've recentely seen Stalker (a russian movie), Your Name. (A beautiful Japanese Animated Movie), Oldoby (a great Korean thriller). Well like you said there are two problems with this title:
1-it's not a movie
2-fake voters
How can we contact IMDB to provide to delete it from the list?

You don't delete it.
Re-categorize it and it is removed from the list automatically.

Thanks Ed, this has been processed now, the genre has been restored and the title will be removed from the Top Rated Movies list within a few hours. 

We are looking at how the genre deletion was accepted and taking steps to prevent it happening again.

If they adhere to precedents set with the other titles, it should be approved.
