The critics have already ripped apart Lindsay Lohan‘s performance in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, but that won’t stop any of us from watching it. Apparently, it’s “spectaculary bad”and will be causing the viewing audience to roar with incessant laughter as opposed to take even a second of it seriously.
According to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Tim Goodman, “By the time Lohan is playing mid-’80s Taylor and it looks like a lost ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit, your body may be cramped by convulsions.” Goodman’s negative comments don’t stop there and he even goes so far as to suggest that the overall horrible embrrassment of it all is worthy of a drinking game. I guess this is where we scream out a great big “THANK YOU” to Lifetime for thinking this could be Lohan’s big comeback, but instead is going to fill our evening with fits of laughter — and an inevitable hangover.
Some say Sundays are made for football; others say it’s made for drinking games at the expense of bad movies.
Even if you don’t want to admit that you’ll be watching Liz & Dick tonight, or that you’ll be DVRing it so you can watch it 15 more times later this week, the fact remains that you will tune in for at least a few minutes. And as with any good two hours of giggles, you’ll need supplies. Lots of supplies.
