If I've learned nothing else about Sim logic, I've learned that the bigger pain it is to cancel an action, the more attractive it is to Sims.
Case in point: Sim gets invited over. Visiting Sim beelines for TV. Visiting Sim starts movie. Visiting Sim is entranced until movie is over or TV is turned off (not to mention, you can't just go straight to a different channel without turning the TV off first).

Here is my solution:
Sims will no longer autonomously "Watch Movie" except under the following circumstances:
They are the currently selected Sim (in which case you can cancel the action if you desire) or
The have Film/Literature as their "One True Hobby" or
someone who meets one of the above criteria is already watching a movie.

Sorry for all the colons.

If a selected Sim chooses to Watch Movie and you deselect them before they've fully routed to the television, they will cancel the action (unless they are Film/Lit OTH).

Additional Credits:
I always use this space to thank other modders, particularly those responsible for the creation and development of SimPE.
I realized I've never thanked Delphy for providing this outstanding site that serves as an outlet for so much creativity and sharing.

Thanks, Delphy.
