What Amazon product has the MOST number of reviews/ratings?

The most rated item so far I've found has 5806 reviews. Does anyone know of a product with more?

I have tried the Amazon API and it could not query something like this.

Bonus question: Besides Netflix movies, what product/service has the most number of ratings online? I need to be able to scrape/pull all this data.

I think you've already found the answer because 5806 is the highest I've found with google.

Fellowship of the Ring comes in close at 4758 reviews. You can do similar searches with a number range through Google.

The IMDb has the results of 69,377,106 user votes on 916,271 films, made for TV movies, TV series, direct to video movies, mini series, and live action video games.

You might even be able to download the raw data. I have never used such data, so I have no idea how to use it and whether it would be useful.

Aww, I was hoping the answer would be milk with 917 reviews.

Netflix made its rental data available recently with the announcement of a contest to improve its recommendation system.

You can perform searches on IMDb based on minimum number of ratings ... by increasing the number, you would get an ever-shorter list of most-rated movies.
