Honestly I've been saying this the whole time. For a movie that was hyped up and marketed like a theater release for a month, it should have done better. All these people saying it did well as VOD and it sets ground work for the future are dead wrong. It did better than most VOD, it didn't do well enough to replace theaters though.

YES it's a Seth Rogan movie so it wouldn't make that much money as is, but this had a lot more going for it.

I agree, not sure it was ever going to make it's money back
