Who’s Your Caddy? was the first film from newly formed Our Stories Films founded by BET billionaire Robert L. Johnson, who formed a distribution pact with the Weinstein Company. The estimated $10 million budget and modest P&A spend was covered by Our Stories Films, with The Weinstein Company receiving a fee for use of its distribution resources. Who’s Your Caddy? was booked into in 1,019 theaters, as counter-programming to The Simpsons Movie and also opened against No Reservations and the equally trashed by critics I Know Who Killed Me. The Weinstein’s released the film through their Dimension label and with their distribution partnership with MGM and the film pulled in in just $2,756,661 — placing #10 for the weekend. It fell 60.4% in its second weekend to $1,092,324 and promptly lost most of its theater count and closed out its run with $5,713,425. Our Stories/Weinstein/MGM would see back about $3 million after theaters take their percentage of the ticket price, leaving most of the P&A spend and budget at a loss. Who’s Your Caddy? saw a release only in a few overseas markets, where it went straight to video and the film has found a nice home on the IMDB bottom 100 since release.
