Glorifying and embellishing a true story for the screen. Basically, adding and making up interesting stuff in an effort to add life to an otherwise nice, but bland story. All "Based on a true story" movies are movieistic otherwise we wouldn't be impressed.
Thank God Erin Brockovich was movieistic. I can't imagine two hours about lawyers without a little Julia Roberts thrown in.
