A movie with virtually no chance of success

This guy is pretty upset that The Sims is being made into a movie, and while he needs to cool down a little, his anger isn’t misplaced. Video games make bad movies, and video games with no plot have even less chance of translating into something watchable (see Kombat, Mortal). You might as well make a Second Life movie, and now that I’ve said that, it’ll happen. But at least all the furries and pedophiles in SL will make for an interesting film, whereas the Sims are just a series of boring virtual families with no quirks beyond the weird diamond things that float over their heads. Maybe one of those could fall and kill someone, and then all the Sims would realize they’re in a computer game. Oh wait, they already made that movie.
