    Re: Liz and Dick miniseries - Lifetime Channel

    I did not watch it never intend to watch it. Casting Lohan as Liz was ludicrous. She doesn't have the looks or the talent. My first thought when I heard about the movie was that Keira Knightly would be a better choice. She is, at least, British.

    I didn't see the actual movie, but I saw a bunch of clips dubbed the "most unintentionally funny" parts of it online the other day and I swear to God, I almost died laughing at the scene where Liz' mother tells her Richard has died...Lohan's fainting scene had be rolling in laughter. Absolute hilarity...

    Please tell me you're kidding. She'd only be a marginally better casting choice than Lilo. Sherilyn Fenn was the best casting for Elizabeth Taylor. Don't know why Lifetime even bothered with this one.

    I lasted about 15-20 minutes and then fell asleep. I woke up a few times during the rest of the movie, but went right back to sleep. It was just terrible. It was like a bad h.s. play. Campy, bad script, no chemistry between the leads. Just embarrassing. Lindsay Lohan had some promise as a young actress, but she's obviously not going to live up to it. This movie was nothing more than her playing dress up.

    Grant Bowler wasn't terrible, but he had nothing to work with. This is definitely not going to help his career.

    Oh God no way! Now she might sympathize with her, being a fellow child star... the pressures, etc, but not to play her!
