Lindsay Lohan - Liz And Dick Reviews Roundup; Does Lindsay Lohan do Elizabeth Taylor Justice?
The Liz and Dick Reviews are out, and while Lindsay Lohan has been in the news for things other than her questionable acting talents, namely getting into fights with her mother and lying to the police, it's time to appraise what she's supposed to be famous for: pretending to be someone else.
Sadly, for Lindsay anyway, it appears that her penchant for unlawful and unsavoury activity remains more prevalent and accomplished than her turn as Elizabeth Taylor in Lloyd Kramer's Liz and Dick. "It should come as no great surprise that Lifetime's Liz & Dick movie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad. After all, it's Lohan, more memorable in the tabloids than she ever was as an actress," say The Hollywood Reporter in their review, adding, "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." The 'bottom line' in this review states: "Both an awful mess and an instant classic of unintentional hilarity." Entertainment Weekly, who give films a grade much like a school test, award the film a C-, and say ,"Lohan, who has squandered years of promise and talent as a sullen-faced party girl and irregular arrestee, has been cut so many breaks, it's difficult to root for her anymore. But there's still a vulnerable quality to her -- the same sensitive-soul aspect to her gaze that's been there since she starred in The Parent Trap (1998) -- that keeps one's hope alive."
We're going to stop now, as you get the idea; it's basically terrible, but could be fun when completely drunk, although we wouldn't want to advocate the excessive use of alcohol, we'll just let Lindsay's antics do that for us. Liz & Dick airs Sunday, November 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
