    You got this one wrong because Rob Dyrdek's movie cost about the same to make and I believe only brought in 10 or 15 dollars profit....

    I don’t want to sound negative or anything. But this video is kind of silly. I thought it was going to tell me something interesting. Instead, he just explained that the movie was a straight to DVD production. Which is actually pretty common. Why didn’t he just title it. “Explanation of a straight to Video movie”

    You pronounce Zyzzyx incorrectly the first y sounds like a long I. A few people live and work there. There are classes at Zyzzyx regularly on archeology, history, photography and numerous other topics. I have given talks out there at the annual symposium and it is one of my favorite place in the desert. The movie crap though.

    I think United Passions (2014) has this beat. It starred Sam Neill, Gerard Depardeau and Tim Roth. It has a zero percent on rotten tomatoes (with an audience score of 11%). Metacritic has it at a 1 and IMDB at a 2.1. This bomb, about the founding of international soccer association FIFA, cost around $30 million to make (90% funded by FIFA) and grossed $607 in the United States. It might have done better overseas but I couldn’t find reliable numbers about that.

    The movie could be a tax dodge. When you make such a movie and only produce such little profit, it can be written off as a loss and therefore keep the studio from paying anything in taxes.

    @Gapper Gob yes. Yes I did. Now you need to see a movie called the Producers. The 60's version. It tells about how two Producers unscrupulously takes money from rich elderly widowed women who bankrolls a play guaranteed to flop so the profits could be pocketed and the IRS could not audit them since the play flopped and claimed as a financial loss.
