You can entertain yourself by going to the IMDb 404 page and continually hitting refresh. Here are a few of the actual error pages:

As noted by one Reddit user, IMDb’s server logs are probably looking pretty funny right now, too, with all these extra hits on the 404 pages.

Do you have any good ones from a favorite movie or TV show?
