好莱坞"以情动人", 家庭观念深入人心。

HOLLYWOOD, the world's factory for turning out hot movies, has discovered its next big thing: family films.

The industry made its biggest profits last year from G- (General audience, 普通级) and PG-rated (Parental Guidance suggested, 家长指导级) movies. In the next few years it plans to fill the nation's screens with even more princesses (公主), monsters (怪物), talking animals and bright school kids.

It's not hard to see why. "Ice Age", a computer-animated (计算机动画) story about friendships between prehistoric animals, was released in March. It has earned more than US$140 million so far and is this year's biggest surprise hit.

This follows several successful family films in 2001, when three of the top four highest-earning films ("Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone", "Shrek" and "Monsters, Inc.") were rated G or PG.

These successes showed Hollywood that movies about children, even animated ones, could appeal to (吸引) parents as well as their children.

Hollywood now knows it could have increased its profits by producing more films with gentle themes and wide appeal.

Film industry insiders (知情人) say that the new interest in family films is due to a number of factors. These include the growing popularity of computer animation and the US Government's attempt to stop young kids seeing adult films. Americans are also looking for fun entertainment since September 11. And there is a new generation of film makers who are also parents.

"We've become absorbed (被吸引) with family values," said Glenn Ross, president of American company Artisan's Family Home Entertainment.
