Trying to Understand Netflix

I am trying - really trying - to understand why Netflix keeps recommending that I rent Veggie Tale movies.

I return a rented movie and they ask me to rate it. And I do. I just returned "There Will Be Blood" (Based on "Oil" by Upton Sinclair) - I gave it 3 stars, while Amy raved about it. The ending was weird. Okay, it was intellectual.
You can tell it was literature. And would be a great novel/movie to discuss.
But I digress.

So after you rate it, Netflix shows you movies that they think you will like.
They ALWAYS show me Veggie Tales movies. I do not CARE what movie I've returned.
I returned comedies last week ("The Truth About Cats and Dogs") - got Veggie Tales.
I'm getting "Zorba the Greek" next and I can guarantee they will still recommend
Veggie Tales. I have never, ever rented a Veggie Tale movie from Netflix. Now I'm not against Veggie Tales. I've, in fact, seen many of them as I have grandchildren.
However, I'm in my 50's (and that's all I'll say about that!) and have no desire
to watch cartoons!

Are they overstocked on Veggie Tales?? Or is it a conspiracy of some sort? Does
someone there think I NEED to be watching Veggie Tales? I felt like singing "God is bigger than the Boogie Man" after watching "There Will be Blood" but that didn't last long.

Oh well..
