    The film set a new American box office record for the lowest opening weekend gross for a film playing at over 2,000 theaters. It grossed $445,000 at 2,160 theaters; just over $200 per theater. The previous record holder was Delgo, which grossed $511,920 in 2,160 theaters.Bit of trivia:TriviaProduction completed in 2009, but the film sat on the shelf for 4 years because the producer wanted to patent the film's method of providing visual cues and synchronizing house lights for a semi-interactive experience. Young viewers are encouraged to get up and dance when butterflies fly across the screen, and sit down when turtles appear.

    What, no blu-ray?

    You can download the movie in high definition for $17.99 from iTunes, or rent it for $3.99. Standard def is also available. Now! What are you waiting for?!?

    Normally, I'm a sucker for early digital releases, but I'll restrain myself this time.

    Which is exactly why I'm going to watch this at some point. Of course, I can say my three-year-old wanted to watch it so I don't feel like such a loser. :)
