Bigger not always better – TV shows as movies

Some savvy (and cynical) readers have wondered whether HBO, flush with the success of the "Sex and the City" big-screen movie, would rush into deals where maybe "The Sopranos" or "The Wire" or other TV series would be turned into films. The thinking is certainly logical, but there are very few instances where it makes sense for a creative, long-running television series to make the leap to the big screen.

Fans can dream it, but what's the real gain?
