Would love to play this with Stunts and Effects again if somebody out there knows what's going on with that version!

I solved the problem!
Did all kinds of things for that administrator problem I found on the internet but none worked.
I right clicked the icon on the desktop and chose open file location (program location).
I opened the extracted folder that was created when I used Power ISO. Inside there is a "Crack" folder. It has an application file. I coped that file over to the (program location) folder and replaced the one there. Works perfectly!
Good luck and have fun with the game.
I owned this game when it first came out but had lost the discs. So glad to get to play again!

Did anyone ever find a way to solve the problem about running as administrator?
When I try to run it - I am told to run as admin. I am logged in to a windows 10 admin account. I right click and choose "run as admin." It brings up a permission dialog and I click ok. Then nothing happens. The starmaker program that comes with it opens just fine.

Sorry for the 3rd comment in a row, but I will leave a few notes for everyone trying to get this game to work:
#1: If your game is failing to start, PLEASE use the cracked file, or else the game will not boot.
#2: Use WinCDEmu to make several fake disc drives so you can mount the 3 discs, PowerISO is a questionable piece of software that seems to contain malware from what I've heard. I might be wrong, this is just my opinion. Mounting the 3 drives will make you able to install the game. There are possibilities that merging all 3 discs can result in installation issues.
#3: Be weary of the expansion pack for now, the packs installation from what I've learned can make your game unplayable, causing things such as sets and messages to be shown as placeholder texts. Especially in the start of the game under the expansion pack showing a placeholder button that does not function. It can also result in your game to crash when it reaches an award ceremony.
These are just my notes so far, if you know a fix for the stunt pack, let me know so I can use it, and others who are having very similar issues.

Nevermind, got it fixed. But I do want to note, several things in the game seem to have issues. Some things are displaying weird placeholders like REM_DELETEBUILDING and also I can't get past the first awards ceremony. It always crashes.

Tried running the game on my Windows 8.1 laptop, failed to start, and I don't understand why.
It just doesn't open up at all.

Installed the game but it doesn't run on windows 10. Anyone else having this issue?

In case you're having issues, installing, here's some help: Do what ALDRO360 did, but I'll be a bit more specific. After Downloading the files from this website, download the .iso mounter program like PowerISO. Open the bin files and extract all of their contents. Do this for each "CD" file. Then take the contents of the 2nd CD file and the 3rd CD file, and copy and paste all of them into the 1st CD file. When it asks if you want to replace the existing files, say yes. This is where the .cab errors come from.

I'm going to help out everyone here since not a lot of people know how to run this properly. After an hour or two I was finally able to get this game to run properly by doing a few simple steps:
1. Download both this and an .iso mounter program such as PowerISO
2. Open the .bin files and extract it's contents using your .iso mounter program and place it into a single file (click yes when prompted to replace file). Do this for each of the three CD files.
3. Next I recommend watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gh4u6a4LKXU and doing all of the steps he has listed since he described them better than I could.
After doing all of this then you should be good to go, I'm playing this classic gem right now and I hope this helps anybody else who is looking to enjoy this game. *Also if you need a key then I would recommend just looking them up since one key can be used by multiple people at once and there has been lots of them shared on the internet.

I AM NOT SURE DAN BUT IF YOU DID MOUNT CD 1 MAKE SURE YOU MOUNT THE TWO OTHER CD'S AND THEN CLICK TE SETUP.EXE FILE AFTER MOUNTING.

OMG this was the $#!+. I used to play the hell out of this. Loved making stupid funny movies.
Toad 2018-08-22 1 point
.iso means you need a .iso mounter program. the program will read the file as if it is already a cd then open it and install. You do not need to burn to a cd guys.
K 2018-08-16 1 point
You guys don't have to burn to a disk, you just use an .iso mounting tool. Grab PowerISO or DaemonTools and open the files there.
bobby o 2018-08-01 1 point
it will not download the game it says 2 hours left and when it gets closer to the end of the download it stops and has an error

If you are looking for a code, it's just a short google from you. I found one by searching "The Movies Keycode"
yostop 2018-07-22 -4 points
THERE IS no exe file you have to burn it into a disk to play it if you read the download it said .iso not .exe
Rose 2018-07-11 3 points
The download includes 3 BIN files, marked CD 1, 2, and 3. You need to burn them to a disk to play.
Diana_Is_Salty 2018-07-10 2 points
how do you play it. The .exe file is missing so are you supposed to extract something, or what?
leelee 2018-07-07 3 points
The .exe file is missing in the download? Are others having the same problem?
