Why don't people make informational movies that are intertaining?

I'm a person who learns from what they watch on T.V. and such. What I don't understand is why can't people make a movie that has a lot of good information AND is entertaining.

like for example,

In the polar express, the know-it-all kid states that Montezuma, the king of the Aztecs, would drink 50 quarts of hot chocolate every day.

A friend of mine had a question on her college quiz that asked what Montezuma was the king of........DX........and she missed it! I only remembered it because of that movie. I've done that with several other movies and school worksheets and quiz's because the stuff in the book is hard to understand and isn't exactly interesting.

If anyone has any ideas, thoughts, comments, or suggestions, please make them. This curiosity is driving me up the wall!!
