This game definitely was one of the top games for me back when it came out. I loved the management aspects for some reason, and I feel like a more in depth game about running a movie studio would be a brilliant idea for a game.
:O
Also, Gunner is one of the children.

"Says here the millenials like something called EEDEE-EM. Can we get that into the movie?"
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The Movies is essentially still great, if you treat it like a B movie simulator and not the big budget emmy winning sim it ends up becoming. Lack of on location shooting, little to no use of extras, barely any effects and mostly cheap ones even with the x pack, and really choppy transitioning from scene to scene. All the elements are there.

Oh man if only the rest of the game reflected that instead of trying to pretend to be golden age hollywood glitz.

- The director has decided there needs to be a gorilla in the movie or he walks.

- The movie is already 500% over its original budget of $427 and you need to beg your mother to remortgage her retirement bungalow to finish filming.

- Your first choice for the starring role has food poisoning from a buffet so the boom operator has to step in because he has the most acting experience, having been the lead in his school's production of Rent. 

- Budget and filming time exhausted, you're 20 minutes short on your required running time so you chop in a bunch of out of context soft porn scenes from an obscure foreign language movie from a defunct studio you're confident will never find out.

-Your lead actress failed to make it to the set. She died of dysentery.

What you described is basically Oregon Trail: Hollywood Edition.
