Daniel, good thinking as ever. It surprises me, really, how few reviewers notice the commercial novel's deepening indebtedness -- slavery, even -- to commercial moviemaking.

Also, I must say, I'm grateful for any piece that pairs up my work with the visionary Robert Coover's.

To add another dimension, maybe the self-help-esque nature of certain kinds of resources (both online, in particular the NaNoWriMo crowd, and print, the standard Janet Burroway textbook) also allow for the continual rehashing. The triangular plots and the originary backstory are, to my mind, the most standardized.
So it might be a combo: easily read novel, easily malleable movie.
Also, I know this post is a few days late, but it really touched on something I've been thinking about lately.
