If ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0429277/ Zyzzyx Road]]'' had existed when ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' was running, Mike and the 'Bots would almost certainly have critiqued it. Star/producer Leo Grillo was uninterested in releasing it domestically until after its foreign release; however, the Screen Actor's Guild imposes certain rules regarding foreign releases of low-budget films. It had to be released in America first... Therefore it was: in a one-week, one-matinee-per-day run at an anonymous, rented theater in [[UsefulNotes/DFWMetroplex Dallas]]. This February 2006 "premiere" holds the record for the lowest box office gross ever, at just $30. Yes, thirty. No, wait...$20. Two of the six tickets sold were later personally refunded by Grillo because they had been purchased by someone who had worked on the film.

Famous for its dubious record and for featuring [[GreysAnatomy Izzie Stevens]]. Not actually a "before they were famous" role for Katherine Heigl, since it was filmed during the hiatus ''after'' Season 1 of ''Grey's Anatomy''. Not related to the 2005 movie ''{{Zzyzx}}'', which incidentally is the [[http://www.roadtripamerica.com/signs/zzyzx.htm correct spelling of the Mojave area]].
