This is an old article, but I just stumbled on it: Why aren’t there more ‘G’ movies?
John Colvin, a father of two, believes Hollywood needs to be more aware of an underserved audience. “They don’t make enough movies for me to take my wife and kids to,” he says.
I don’t go to movies often, but I would if I could take my children. Unfortunately, there are only a few children movies released annually, and one of those was so boring my daughter wanted to leave, which we did (that movie was Robots). Yes, there are a lot of children movies available for purchase and rental, but it isn’t the same; going to a theater with a four year old is fun, frustrating, exciting, and often hilarious (if not for you then for parents around you).
I hate the phrase “… enough profit”. How much is “enough”? Stupid capitalism.
