Reviews: Need a search capability within user reviews for a title

Much like Amazon.com has a Search box on the Customer Reviews page of each product, I'd like to see that on IMDb.com. That way I can search for certain words when the title has multiple pages of user reviews.

Hold the page,then Try using a name of a product or a person or movie to search on google, I. E. Or a search engine to locate by date, or image and yes that would be cool to have a search on IMDb! Their very helpful and nice people!

if you think it would be nice to have on imdb, then please Vote for the idea with the heart button at the top of the page.

I'm not sure I follow your suggestion.

Let's do an example. Let's find all the reviews that mention "Joan" for the film Good News ('47). Here's the index of 39 reviews:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039431/reviews-index?filter=chrono;filter=chrono;
Going page by page, I find "joan" in reviews dated
8 December 2016
7 September 2016
3 June 2016
26 July 2014
26 August 2011
24 December 2008
21 August 2007
18 July 2006
25 May 2006
3 May 2005
3 May 2004
23 October 2001
26 September 2001
30 June 2001
13 May 2001
1 February 2000
15 March 1999

But when I do the google search
joan site:www.imdb.com/title/tt0039431/reviews
I get 3 listings, one of which is the review page itself. And that first page will display different reviews depending on your display preference (Best vs Chronological, etc.) So this Google search was completely inadequate.

So what's your external search suggestion, exactly?
