Summary: I used to play this game awhile ago, the package came right on the date specified, and in perfect condition. I was very satisfied with the shipment. The game itself is the same as it used to be, and as fun as ever.
Summary: I watched a "lets play" video of this game on youtube and it made me want to play this game. its fun and pretty easy to learn. i dont do much when it comes to the post production of the movies in the games because its not really me. as a whole whole though this game is really fun and worth the time.
A few mistakes keep this game from being perfect.....

Summary: Let me start off by saying this game isn't for everyone. If your into micro-managing and sims style/tycoon games... then you will enjoy the The Movies. This game is not perfect in any way.... but what the Movies does do good....it does really GOOD. Now i have had this game before... i have played it on both Windows XP and Windows Vista Home Prenium. The game actually ran better on Windows Vista on my laptop.
Summary: This game is so hilarious, but at the beginning it is very mundane, but just hang in there because it gets better. This game does take up a lot of space on your hard drive, so make sure that you have enough space on there. It is so fun to dress your stars in the emerging fashions, and see how they change from decade to decade. The awards shows are interesting as well because the presenters fashions also change from decade to decade.
Summary: The game DOES work on Windows 7. Don't listen to all of the other reviews, they just don't know how to get it to work correctly. I figured out how. The auto play feature IS NOT compatible with Windows 7 apparently... So when you put the disc in, it gives you an error. But, that's not a big deal, the game itself and the setup software are 100% compatible. So, when you put in the disc, ignore the error message.
Summary: I liked The Movies, but know that if you have Vista or Windows 7, you're going to have to do a bit of maneuvering to get it installed. I didn't take off stars for that though. The game is fun, I like that you can create your own stars and it's interesting seeing how the costumes the characters can wear off-set change through the years. For me, the awards ceremony part was cute. When I first got the game, I played it whenever I could, and got up to the 1980's..
