Zyzzyx Road

Zyzzyx Road will probably go down in history as the lowest grossing movie ever. On February 25, 2006, Zyzzyx Road was released in one theater and made a total gross of $30. According to boxofficemojo.com, the film made $20 opening weekend and got to the staggering total of $30 in it's six day theatrical run. Watching the trailer you can probably tell why it did so poorly even in it's one theater that it played in. Still not available on DVD and oft confused with a film of a similar name (Zzyzx), Katherine Heigl fans should be glad that this didn't ruin her career. I know I'd watch it if it were available though.

I don't know, it didn't look that bad. I mean, compare it to something like ... Mortal Kombat 2, for instance. That was a movie I had to stop halfway through and return to Blockbuster and get my money back for.

One of the worst movies I ever saw was The Little Rascals. I rarely ever walk out of a movie, but I walked out of that one.

By contrast, Zyzzyx Road looks eminently watchable.

Also, I remember hearing that only three people went to see it when it came out (two of the people I believe were people that worked on the movie) and one of them got there money back after see it. I didn't mention this in the post because I couldn't find the article where I read that information, I also don't know if it was true.

I'd love to see it and if it comes out I'll make sure to let everyone know.

@Roland - if you think Zzyzx road is desolate, you ain't seen nothing. Try driving through Nevada along Highway 95 between Vegas and Reno, pick any side road at all...or head up around the outskirts of Area 51...miles and miles of nothing. You know you are in the middle of nowhere when the road sign says "Next Services 153 miles"


But I LOVE it!!
