Lame because: Fiction always fudges, judges and nudges. If we care, we already know what's going on. If we want to get insight or get fired up, we'd rather watch a great documentary. Or two. Or three.

How to turn it around: Stop sending high-priced stars to do a newcomer's job. Stop sounding so self-righteous. Tell us something we haven't heard before. Better yet: forget the drama and make a comedy. Send Borat to Iraq. That's a movie we'd all pay to see.

Next up: Pick a new decade, dude!
