Actually, Lindsay refuses to read any reviews of her work. It might be because the last time she got a positive review was when she was in Parent Trap, but regardless, that’s her stance. She claims that negative reviews “take away from her experience” of filming, which is ridiculous, because all her bad reviews do is tell the truth.
Do you want to know why we’re talking about this right now? It’s because the very first review came in for Liz & Dick. And it’s a doozy.
Let’s check out some of the highlights:
The Lifetime movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor is half train wreck, half “SNL” skit.
It should come as no great surprise that Lifetime’s Liz & Dick movie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad.
Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish. But, whatever you do, don’t miss Liz & Dick. It’s an instant classic of unintentional hilarity. Drinking games were made for movies like this. And the best part is that it gets worse as it goes on, so in the right company with the right beverages, Liz & Dick could be unbearably hilarious toward the tail end of the 90-minute running time. By the time Lohan is playing mid-’80s Taylor and it looks like a lost Saturday Night Live skit, your body may be cramped by convulsions.
The talking part doesn’t turn out so well for Lohan. There is not one minute in this film where she’s believable.
At one point, Lohan has to shout, “I won’t live without you!” and then run down a hall. It’s like a high school play. She then tries to kill herself with booze and pills. If this starts to seem like a good idea to you, it’s time to switch the channel.
Lohan as Taylor was a bad idea in the dramatic sense, but it’s pure genius both for marketing and for belly laughs and drinking games.
The review also mentions that the movie has these interview breaks, where there’s not an actual story happening, just Lindsay doing interviews to the camera as Elizabeth Taylor. This movie is going to be amazing.
We’ll all be watching this, right?
