If Hollyweird cares about money, which they do immensely, they will do a heads up and forget about the trash that they've been trying to force down Americans' throats.
I disagree intensely.
The evidence is there now and has been for many years: If Hollywood cares about money, if they want to generate more profits, they should make more traditional, more values-focused, more family-friendly movies.
But they don't do that. They make "Bareback Mountain" instead.
You need to ask yourself "Why?"
The answer is that Hollywood truly does not care about money. Not nearly as much as you think. The people who are there are getting paid, so on a personal level, the money is just fine. In terms of long-term growth for the business -- they don't care! They take a very short-term view of things.
What do they care about?
Making a difference. Pushing an Agenda. That, right there, explains everything you need to know about Hollywood. It is NOT money-driven. It's driven by a group of people who want to push Leftwing Values, including pro-homosexual views and pro-Child Sex views. A lot of people point to a Pink Mafia running Hollywood. I think that's part of it, but really the problem is a bit broader than that. But this is a case where Following the Money won't help.
I think the issue is complicated. Actually, I think Hollwood has made some family friendly movies in the past few years, which previous posters have pointed out. The movie makers are making a variety of projects and seeing what works. Unfortunately, at this point, I think most people are turned off to what has been produced and the whole theater experience opting instead to rent DVD's (that's another issue). So, numbers are dropping.
And yes, hollywood is left-wing and they clearly have an agenda, etc. It is also a very closed little community with a certain "group think" mentality. There is a disconnect to the real world and that translates into a lot of what ends up getting produced. Also, hollywood has a tremendous amount of nepotism which adds to that "group think" mentality. You would be surprised at how many people are actually related to each other. For a supposedly creative industry, it is, in fact, extremely difficult to create anything new given this kind of cliquish atmosphere. The industry is suffocating accordingly.
