Most movies in general seem to be aimed at 13-year old boys. Not just the dorky guy - hot girl pairings, but simplistic plots and obvious humor.Studios must think that any movie with strong female characters will be labeled a "chick film" and that no one other than groups of women will see it. Or they think that women would rather see a movie with Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, etc. than with female leads. So they rarely make movies with strong female characters, and as a result many women stay home and the moviegoing audience becomes predominantly male, which gives the studios another reason to keep making films with male leads and women as eye candy.I think it was Amanda Marcotte who mentioned how few movies other than so-called "chick films" have-two female characters-who talk to each other-about something other than a man.
