four-quadrant film
 n.— «But the bigger a film budget becomes, the more it’s thought necessary to attract EVERYONE to see it in order to pay off that budget (making it a “four-quadrant” film, in current parlance). So the more expensive the film, the more it will be driven by male characters.» —“Insight From Inside” by Brian Nelson Peter Sagal: Blog Apr. 3, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)

    This entry doesn’t give much of a definition. Here’s one:

    “Just what does “four-quadrant” mean? It’s a movie that appeals to all four main demographic groups—young and old, male and female.”
