What a maroon...
The problem with the "follow the money" thesis is that Hollywood for YEARS has had overhwleming evidence that a "G" rated movie on average makes a lot more money than a PG or R. Yet Hollywood does not want to make "G" rated movies. This is the point of Medved's book, "Hollywood vs. America." It't not just about money. It's about being perceived as "hip," liberal, and "with it."
