Colorado film The Worst Movie EVER! opens to dismal $11 box office, then goes viral

The headline potential is almost too good to be true: A movie called The Worst Movie EVER! hauls in the worst opening-weekend box office ever, selling exactly one ticket for a total gross of $11.

And yet it is true, and it happened to Glenn Berggoetz, a Metro State professor by day and maker of extremely silly movies, like last year's To Die is Hard, by night (or whenever his spare time is) as the head of his production company, Driving With Our Eyes Shut Productions. Not that he was particularly excited about the abysmal flop when it happened, but the irony (or utter lack thereof) was evidently rich enough that the sad opening weekend is starting to look like a godsend.
