Message in a Film

I gotta ask this.  If the abiding message of a film boils down to a single sentence, wouldn't I be better off reading the sentence and skipping the popcorn.  Okay, maybe that's hard-hearted, but just had to ask. 
   I'll soften that a little.  The Bible could be boiled down to the words "God is love," but I certainly don't want to read that sentence and skip the book. 
   How do I decide whether a movie is worth watching?
