What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad term that encompasses many different forms of art, recreation and entertainment. These forms vary widely from person to person and may include movies, theater, music, books, art and sports. The word “entertainment” derives from the Latin intertenere, or to hold inside; based on its roots in Indo-European, it is possible that entertainment can also be seen as a means of intellectual growth or insight.

What is considered entertaining for one group of people may not be considered entertaining for another, and this flexibility has ensured the longevity of a number of familiar themes and images in popular culture.
