That's one thing that a lot of Hollywood really doesn't understand, or rather, has forgotten; family movies sell BIG. We don't need to have ALL movies be adult or teen/adult, with R and 'hard' PG-13 ratings, and full of nothing but violence and foul language. Family movies are worth it too, and do make it big.

Uh, unless it really, really sucks. I mean...like...REALLY bad.

Agreed. I'm sure we could name a few G-rated disasters, but there is far more garbage in the PG-13 and R side. I, for one, am looking forward to watching Horton Hears a Who with the wife. She loves animated family movies.
