    In 2011, 207 R-rated movies were released, and the average movie made just 10-million dollars. In the same year, 18 rated-G movies were released, and they generated 34-million-dollars each. Media pundit Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission, says thinks many in Hollywood have lost touch with what middle America wants. In a press release, he said "they don't know how to market to the average American, who is a churchgoing Christian, and believes in God, country and family." Ticket sales have dramatically dropped the past few years.
