Major Motion Picture

NPR’s Morning Edition ran a story this morning about a new movie, African Violet. It included this paragraph:
Regina Kelley was there, and amid the tension and the excitement, she shook her head in disbelief that her life had become a major motion picture.
One often encounters the phrase “major motion picture.” Have you ever noticed, however, that there seem to be no minor motion pictures?
