This weekend, Paris Hilton’s future Oscar winner, The Hottie and the Nottie, set a new standard for box-office failure, earning an estimated $25,500 in total box office at 111 theaters, for a jaw-dropping per-screen average of $230. /film figures that at an average ticket price of $8, that means that 29 people made it to each theater playing the movie this weekend, and a total of 3,219 people paid to see it nationwide.
Are you one of those people? What was it like? Did your friends choose the movie, or was it your fault? Did you attend ironically or unironically? Are you in the hospital now as a result of your experience? Let us know in the comments!
