On the contrary, it is the modern multiplex that shows a distaste for variety, filling its screens with nothing but $100m blockbusters (and the odd British film - as long as it stars Gwyneth Paltrow), and evincing a great fear of anything without special effects or with subtitles.
Blockbuster cinema can be wonderful - who isn't thrilled to the core at the thought of a new Star Wars? - but there's so much more to the medium.
And the reason anyone would disapprove of There's Something About Mary is that it's a deeply unfunny film.
