Cjgurl: This is a strange situation. 2000 Mules is in the database at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt18924506/ .

However, if I search for the title, it's hard to find. It's not one of the top 5 searches for the title "2000 mules": https://www.imdb.com/find?q=2000+mules

It is 13th in that search if you click on "more popular matches".

But if you look for exact matches for the title "2000 mules", it doesn't come up at all: https://www.imdb.com/find/?q=2000%20mules&s=tt&exact=true

I don't know what the problem is here, but something seems to be wrong at least with the latter search result.

This isn't exactly a problem, but rather a function of the fact that the movie title begins with a number that is also a year when many titles were released ("2000"). So when you type "2000 Mules" it will try to pull movies from the year 2000 in the top search results. (Normally, being able to add years to quick searches from the home page is a good thing because it helps narrow down results.)

As far as quick searches from the home page, the answer is to search for "200 Mules." Try it and you'll see that the film is the first result. 

As far as the last link in your response, the search for exact matches, that pulls up the intended film for me as the only result. So whatever the problem was when you tried, that has been fixed now.

@keyword_expert​ (and @gromit82) This is a bug in the new search which is only being shown to a subset of customers.  We will let the appropriate team know.
