I assume you don't have the latest PyMOL version (1.5), which has
improved plugin support and should not raise such an error.
I don't know "movs.py" but it looks like it has not been written as a
"plugin", but just a normal PyMOL/python script (again, PyMOL 1.5 will
not make such a strong differentiation). Try to load the script with the
"run" command on the command line:
PyMOL> run movs.py
Hope that helps.
