Is there anyone, other than the Lifetime executives, that thought this was a good idea?

/is Bonnie Hammer running Lifetime, too?

I thought the "kitchiness" of Lohan was entirely WHY they hired her.
 
2012-11-16 04:26:35 PM
It would be one thing if she had the looks (for that role) or the acting chops. She has neither, so I don't get it.

Such a waste of potential in that girl.
 
2012-11-16 04:27:11 PM
Oh - I feel compelled to add - I'm totally watching it anyway.
 
2012-11-16 04:36:10 PM
I saw a commercial for it and just kinda stared at it and said "WTF" and had a giggle.

I like how the tab on my browser says "Lindsay Lohan gets slammed"

It's a beautiful double entendre, too.

Every time I quote Mean Girls after a line and it makes sense. +drink.

Whoa whoa whoa--Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were an item???

She still has potential...as a spectacular suicide. Maybe she'll swallow a stomach full of gummy bears and blow herself up like a pinata.

I never really understood drinking games. If I want to get blitzed, I hardly need a game for it, and if I want to remain sober(ish), then therer also bad idea. I think I'll drink heavily and then wank to the thoughts of one-upon-a-time Lindsay (see pictures above).

I will watch anything that has anything to do with Elizabeth Taylor, no matter how ridiculous.

I hope there's a Fark thread for this when it airs.

The truly sad thing about Lindsey Lohan was the already low amount of red headed starlets was decreased by one

Liz & Dick sucks

I need to go watch Taming of the Shrew again now.

Benny Hill did the best Liz and Dick spoof. Lindsay has nothing on him.

Do not speak that name lest a pit opens beneath you and you descent into the netherworld.

Not surprised. Also, with the amount of shiat the film crew had to put up with from her, I wouldn't be surprised if this was her last movie role or if the next one was a direct to video flick or a Syfy channel original movie.

Maybe she could star in "Bearantula"

Oddly enough she was probably more like Liz off camera.
 
2012-11-16 05:39:45 PM
Joan Rivers played her better.

I just wish she'd get nakeder...
 
2012-11-16 05:43:03 PM
I actually thought it was a SNL bit.
 
2012-11-16 05:52:56 PM
Let me guess, the movie ends when she crashes her car and dick is ejected.

She had a bit part in Scary Movie 50 ? something like that. She was accused of stealing some of the wardrobe when she left.

Pretty much. It's a Lifetime movie, you can't expect actual star power. Cripes the only way I could see her getting the role in a full on Hollywood movie would be via a giant gangbang with every producer in California.

Help me John Waters, you're my only hope.

Actually...

I got to see a screener for this as part of my volunteer work with my college newspaper.

Lindsay did shockingly well....I think she's well on her way to being a star again if she keeps this up.

What college do you go to? I was EIC of my college paper, and we didn't get shiat.

It's a Lifetime movie, let's back off on this "star" talk until she moves up to MTV.

More than one person said that she was a good actress, back when she had her shiat together.
But that won't help her if she keeps being such a trainwreck.

/I mean "people" as in reviewers and other actors.

I would agree, but I think it was more potential (since she was younger). I would say that ship has sailed.
 
2012-11-16 11:12:54 PM
I'm pretty sure this won't be the last movie she does with the name "Dick" in the title.

Haha, that's true, I'm being a little overzealous. Still, it was a refreshing performance.

Did you go to college from the 90s to now? That was the only way to get chicks drunk back in the day!

The author makes her living writing reviews of reviews (of tv movies). That makes her the only person I can think of whose career is in worse shape than Lindsay Lohan's.

Begs to differ.

I saw a trailer for that when I went to see Man with the Iron Fist. She sounds like absolute shiat.
 
2012-11-17 09:02:52 AM
Well, she looks the part, and she's on her way to being as crazy as Taylor so I don't think she's such a bad choice, I might watch this, on Love Film in a few years.

Actually, I think she does look enough like Liz to make it believable.
