Looking for a Good "Hit in Crotch" Movie?

Amazon, continuing its endless quest to slice and dice its database to amuse freaks like me, has added plot keywords to its listings. For example you can find all movies with the Hit in Crotch keyword. Or perhaps you want to relax with a nice Fart Scene. The URL implies they are from IMDB but I don't see them available directly from there (even through other things that Amazon shows, like goofs and quotes, are on IMDB).

The keywords for "Shrek 2", as an example, are "Sequel | Donkey | Gingerbread Man | Honeymoon | King | Knight | Ogre | Princess | Puss In Boots | Queen | Wolf | Blockbuster | 3D Animation | Assassin | Dragon | Factory | Flatulence | Husband Wife Relationship | In Laws | Magic Potion | Magic Wand | Mermaid | Mother Son Relationship | Mud Bath | Rivalry | Rock Concert | Scene During End Credits | Stepsister | Toad | Transformation | Horse | Prince | Puppet | Second Part | Sword | Bar Scene | Best Friend | Dance Scene | Father Daughter Relationship | Father In Law | Love Potion | Mother Daughter Relationship | Mother In Law | Party | Red Carpet | Talking Animal | True Love | Villainess | Pitchfork | Prejudice | Racism | Redemption | Arm Wrestling | Destiny | Hit In Crotch | Harp | Shark | Fire Breathing Dragon | Magic | Newlywed | Cgi Film | Fart Scene | Computer Animation". Makes it sound like "War and Peace" (with bonus crotch-hitting).

I don't know why but this stuff attracts me like a moth to the flame. Actually I think it's clever of Amazon to do something like this...to the extent that I would ever consider using another online bookseller (which I wouldn't right now) or consider switching to Amazon from somewhere else, a pointless feature like this might be the one that makes me switch. Enough of them and you get everybody.

their database totally sucks. how can you have "fart scene" as a tag and not have "Blazing Saddles" in the tagged group???

And they don't have "Madagascar" as a "Hit in Crotch" movie either (with its HIC scene evidently personally inserted by Jeffrey Katzenberg).
