I (Rich) mentioned that PG films always do better at the box office than R-rated films. Here are the statistics for 2009, the most recent that I could find in a quick search. It's courtesy of Camelot Entertainment Group:
There were 558 feature films released in 2009, down from 633 in 2008. 28%, or 158, of those were released by the major studios. 400, or 72%, were released by independent distributors. Of the top 25 films in 2009, 1 movie earned more than $400,000,000 at the U.S./Canadian box office in 2009; 1 movie earned more than $300,000,000; 5 earned between $200,000,000 and $300,000,000, and 18 earned between $100,000,000 and $199,000,000. PG-13 films continue to dominate the top 25, with 13 films in the top 25. 9 films were rated PG and 3 films were rated R. Overall, approximately 50% of all movies released theatrically were rated PG-13. 30% were rated PG, 15% were rated R and 5% were rated G.
While I was doing that research I happened upon a fascinating article by Ted Baer backing up a lecture we heard at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival and a talk from one of last year's MasterWorks guest artists, Philip TelferWho Stole Our Culture? It outlines how the wrenching of our society from it's Christian moorings is actually a well-documented "long march" toward Marxism.

Someone asked how they could give toward the distribution of Christian films. If you'd like to give toward the film that I mentioned (live only). You can give here: We're looking into whether or not you can receive a tax deduction, so check back here ( to see if that is possible.
