Trivia

The film opened at one theater, Highland Park Village Theater in Dallas, Texas. It ran for six days, and made $30 at the box office. A crew member who took a friend got a refund, so the final domestic box-office gross was $20 or the equivalent of three tickets sold. See more »

Great film!
4 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

This film is great. It's fun to watch Heigl in a different role from normal. She's a great actress. Check it out - worth the time! Grillo and Sizemore are also great, Sizemore is an awesome villain. The storyline is very different - lots of twists and keeps you on your toes. Overall, it's a fun and exciting thriller/mystery. Zyzzyx Road is the actual name of a road in Las Vegas. The film has a funny history -- grossing $30 at the box office! That makes it the lowest grossing film of all time, but there's a lot more to it than that. It's an interesting story, look it up on Google some time. I think that its also in the trivia on this page. For the record, it is pronounced "Zizzix"
