AOC's climate change documentary has amazing critical reviews, but she made just $10,000 in the theatrical release
· · Dec 14, 2022 ·

There's an Iron Law of Rotten Tomatoes that says the higher the critic reviews of a movie, the worse that movie actually is and the worse it will do with audiences.

To prove this rule correct once again, AOC has released a climate change documentary that critics love and no one else is going to see.

$80 per theater?

If I go to a movie by myself I'm liable to spend half of that for one movie.

"Representative Ocasio-Cortez offers the best onscreen antidote to despair — she's funny, a canny political strategy," Teo Bugbee of the New York Times wrote.

"To the End is set to ignite more Americans to take action,"'s Nick Allen wrote in his review.

The documentary debuted on more than 120 screens over the weekend but garnered less than $10,000 dollars across all theaters, coming in 33rd place overall at the box office.

120 screens across the country had to make room to show this movie to absolutely no one. I don't even think AOC's family went to see it.

You'll recall this isn't AOC's first documentary.

She had the Netflix special "Knock Down the House," which critics also absolutely loved, but audiences nearly unanimously hated.

It's almost like the elite Hollywood critics are just leftwing political hacks who don't realize that nobody else in the country is interested in watching a documentary starring Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
