View Full Version : Question: Why can't erotic romances translate to the silver screen?

I've noticed that the majority of "romance" movies fall into two categories: the sweet and the pornographic. (And by pornographic, I'm thinking along the lines of X rated.)

But so many of the erotic romances I've read I feel would be terrific up on the movie screen. True, they'd be hard R rated, but why aren't there any? Is it because Hollywood hasn't caught up with the genre? Or is it because they believe such stories won't translate to the visual medium?

If there are such movies already out there, please point me in their direction.
