Welcome to the concept of supply and demand. This is only true as long as the supply of kids' movies stays low. As more and more are out at the same time, the entertainment buck will be spread thinner and fewer earnings will arrive to each movie. Since the R-rated movies way out pace the Gs in quantity, they get less spend. Furthermore, unlike the R movies, G (and a lot of PG) movies are pushed by every fast food joint and Chinese toy manufacturer and as such get much more commercial time.
