Movie genre plays a significant role in recommendation system as everyone has a liking for movies of specific genres. Nowadays, a Wikipedia (or wiki) page or plot for each movie is maintained on the Web. In this chapter, we propose to use the Wikipedia movie plot for genre fraction detection using text mining techniques. For our purpose, we use the bag-of-words model as topic modeling where the (frequency of) occurrence of each word is used as a feature for training a classifier. We create the corpus for 20 genres with word frequencies 1, 5, and 15 separately. Wikipedia movie plot of 640 movies is used to evaluate the proposed system. A total of 540 movie plots are used for creating corpuses, and the rest 100 are used as a test set. The system performs best on refined corpus with word frequency 15.
