Karate Kid Google Reviews Wrong?If you do a search in Google for [karate kid movie] up comes a one box result for The Karate Kid movie. But it has only a two star review on average from users. Why?

If you dig deeper and look at the Google Reviews for that movie, you will see reviews on "Bollywood movies." According to Wikipedia, "Bollywood is the informal term popularly used for the Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. The term is often incorrectly used to refer to the whole of Indian cinema; it is only a part of the Indian film industry."

The Karate Kid is not a Bollywood, so why is Google showing reviews for Bollywood movies here?

Here is a screen capture:

All these negative reviews make up the two star rating on the Google search result listing:

Personally, I have not seen the movie - so maybe it is only two stars. But it does seem Google is pulling in the wrong reviews for this movie.
