"Hollywood common knowledge dictates that the "masculine" genres of action and violence outperform the "feminine" genres of tear-jerkers and romantic comedy. This video questions the legitimacy of this conviction, presenting the numbers for such "chick flicks" as The first wives' club, Waiting to exhale, You've got mail, and Titanic. It considers some of the many levels on which sexism operates in Hollywood and addresses the irony of a money-driven industry ignoring the bottom line."--Distributor's web site
