Anything Else was the third and final comedy film of Woody Allen’s three picture financing and distribution pact with DreamWorks, who distributes in the US and German based VCL Film+Media co-finances with DreamWorks and owns the overseas rights. Anything Else was budgeted at $18 million and after Allen’s previous two films (The Curse of the Jade Scorpion and Hollywood Ending) pulled in awful numbers in the US, DreamWorks made the decision to market the film without Allen’s name in commercials, leaving the limited drawing power of Jason Biggs and Christina Ricci to draw in audiences. That failed to do so and Anything Else was the lowest grossing film of the three pictures. It was booked only moderately wide in 1,033 theaters over a very crowded weekend with four other pictures opening — Underworld, Secondhand Lions, The Fighting Temptations and Cold Creek Manor. It pulled in a terrible $1,673,125 — placing outside the top 10 at #12. Audiences gave the pic a toxic C- cinemascore and the film sank 61.5% the following weekend to $644,826 and promptly lost most of its theater count. Anything Else closed its run after only four weeks with $3,212,310. The film was mostly a bust overseas, pulling in just $10,372,765.
