Rebecca: This is so bad it's almost good.
Enid: This is so bad it's gone past good and back to bad again.

I imagine it will be something like that.

I believe Patton Oswalt will be live-tweeting this film, which will be infinitely more entertaining than Lindsay Lohan pretending to be an actor playing an actor.

Because People in power are Stupid: Same time as Dexter and Boardwalk Empire... um, no.


I don't watch Boardwalk Empire (not saying it's not a good show, just don't watch a lot of TV) but Dexter is awesome this season.

But would it kill Yvonne Strahovski to get naked?

I moved my Boardwalk Empire to the later recording just to accommodate this train wreck. Will also be following along with Patton & friends.

Holy cow. The scene near the end of last week's (in the bar) was fantastic.

I know she's cokes out and wrecked, but I still would.
 
2012-11-25 07:54:13 PM
It is a source of strange fascination to me that Lindsay Lohan is as old as me. Something about how she's a washed-out star with her best days behind her (most likely) whereas I feel like my life's work is still in its beginning stages.

/ Mary-Kate and Ashley are also the same age, so in them I take solace that I don't look like a freakish skeleton-goblin creature

This isn't her first Lifetime movie. Mrs. Highway had one on today and it was exactly what you would expect: Lohan gagged, Lohan smoking, Lohan banging, Lohan doing some acting even.

Fark now has a thread for a Lifetime movie? There is nothing good about Lifetime, ever. Not even reruns of Golden Girls.

2012-11-25 08:47:33 PM
You people are really going to sit down and watch this shiat?

The thing that kills me about this is that Lifetime's ratings are going to be through the freaking roof. That, in turn will result in bankability for LiLo, and probably get her more work.

You are all enablers, you realize that, don't you? :)

This biatch shows up late, drunk, and most likely infected with something, and she gets money.

So, I'm not recording this and I probably should since I'm atmy local watching the Grey Cup but I watched Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf a month ago and there is NO WAY that Lilo, even in her prime, could pull that sort of performance off.

No idea. I don't know a single thing about it except that it's LiLo, a male porn star, and Bret Easton Ellis. BEE is on some sort of kick where he's basically become one of his own characters, so it will be both ironic parody and wholeheartedly genuine, and probably a spectacular failure to boot. I can't wait.

For every 10 problems, there's 1 nice reference like that. This movie is still a trainwreck, without a doubt.

If the filmmakers were smart, they would've restaged Cleopatra's entrance into Rome using the standing Forum set at Cinecitta.

/How the hell did they misspell Cinecitta?

thisispete: The guy who played Richard Burton called working with Lohan a lesson in tolerance and patience.


I believe it. He was fabulous. Lohan was so bad it was distracting. However, I have to admit that I liked it. At first I didn't because I started watching it in the middle (right after the Virginia Woolf remake). They had a fight about her "pudgy fingers" and then the fight afterwards. It was half-hearted and weak and showed Lindsey's flaws. The story seemed kind of disjointed. Two hours didn't seem to be enough time to tell the story in a more compelling way.
