Movie-line: Something Called "The Worst Movie Ever!" Made $11 Last Weekend!


Recommended Posts


I'm a big fan of the original, incredibly offensive, B-movie that was shot in 8m as a joke.


Last weekend was an especially brutal one for new releases, with Fright Night, Conan the Barbarian and Spy Kids: All the Time in the World all performing well below expectations. But numerous indies and other limited releases had it even worse: Renny Harlin’s 5 Days of War grossed less than $7,000 on two screens. The Patrick Dempsey/Ashley Judd heist romcom Flypaper barely broke $1,000 in a pair of theaters. But something called The Worst Movie Ever! had arguably the worst movie opening ever: $11.

According to Box Office Mojo, the film debuted on one screen and appears to have had one single viewer. A scan of the film’s Facebook page reveals that screen to have been at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in Los Angeles, where WME! had two midnight screenings on Friday and Saturday — only one of which was actually attended by anybody, evidently. “I just received the box office numbers from LA - ugh,” wrote writer-producer-director-star Glenn Berggoetz in a post on Monday. His viewer’s identity isn’t clear, but signs point to young co-star Christine Mascolo, who had her photograph snapped in front of the theater over the weekend. (Berggoetz, who is based in Denver, has not yet responded to Movieline’s request for comment.) The resulting $11 gross rivals the infamous $20 earned by the Katherine Heigl bomb Zzyax Road, which screened to exactly six people over a week in 2007.

So what exactly is The Worst Movie Ever!? Let’s start with the trailer:

Bizarre, absurd, and funny

5 February 2011 | by nummy3 (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Worst Movie EVER!" is a mess of a movie, yet somehow it works. There are two angry teens (who are obviously way too old to play teenagers) who are constantly angry at their parents. There's Santa Claus. There's a young teen-aged girl who might be pregnant by her even younger boyfriend. There's a robot alien who likes to kill. There's a mentally handicapped guy who has a fondness for wearing dresses. There's an evil dark overlord. There's a woman who just keeps running and running. There's a soul taker who is determined to steal the soul of the mentally handicapped guy. There's a young assistant to the soul taker who is in love with the mentally handicapped guy. There's a mother of one of the angry teens who puts up with all his sassing - for a while. There are plenty of awful songs being sung by nearly everyone in the cast. Gandhi makes an appearance. And there is one laugh after another. Great film.
