    Liz & Dick

    Reviewed it by request... it's worse than you could likely concieve. Elizabeth Taylor, rest her beautiful soul, is no doubt spinning in her grave. Lindsey Lohan is at her worst, and the movie really has no plot so to speak... the only thing I can say potively is that the accompanying drinking game got me blitzed. Well, that and the review got me paid, but I digress.

    So is anyone else nursing off a hangover from Lifetime's attempts to cash in on the late great Elizabeth Taylor?

    Ehhh,

    Can't imagine why Lohan was chosen to portray the beautiful but ill-fated Liz Taylor.

    I'll pass.
    Don't rush me, I'm working on it!

    I swear, I think the paparazzi-based establishment just wants to see if they can drive her off a ledge and the snap pics of her all the way down.

    Didn't watch it, won't watch it when it comes to Hulu. From the small bits of trailers I've seen, Lohan's voice isn't even close to Taylor's. Too scratchy.

    I saw a few clips. Oh, my. Maybe Lindsay shouldn't play known characters. It doesn't appear to be her thing

    I watched it. A trainwreck all the way. Holy cow. The writing and acting was pretty horrendous.

    Celia, nope, it was pretty much just focused on Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. They started when she was filming Cleopatra.

    It was worse than I thought it would be. Even if LiLo's acting had been amazing, the film would have still been trash. The script was awful.

    Script? It seemed to me that actors just wandered around a studio lot and said, "Oh, hey, there's a movie going on here? I think I'll join in."
