Did you watch Liz & Dick? What did you think?

I love how she was supposed to be fat in certain scenes but they didnt bother to change her appearance, she still looked 89 pounds
I had every intention of watching it. I really did. I was at work, and even convinced them to put it on the big screen…I started watching it, but then the inevitable happened and everything went to hell in a hand basket (and I don't mean the movie) so I didn't get to watch.I'm chalking it up to Divine intervention. However, from what little I saw, couldn't they at the very LEAST have sprung for violet contacts?
One of the gags they would do on the Benny Hill Show was they'd chop off the sides of movies (chopping off names of actors and films) to fit onto the squarish TV's of the day. Like how a movie is wide and a TV is square.
The one I saw Saturday night did this. "RAN SIN" (Frank Sinatra) was one, but the main feature was "Who's Afraid of Virgin Wool." They then did a parody of that movie, with Benny Hill as Liz Taylor.
Benny Hill aping Liz Taylor was more believable than Lindsay Lohan!
ps. the stars of the film, in my opinion, were the rough, dry, cracked and dirty oven mitts that Lindsay calls "hands" even the "natural look" mani she had going on could not hide the blatant drug use/addiction.
I thought Lindsay did ok and here's why: I actually have never seen a Liz Taylor movie, looked at too many pics of her young (until I researched last night), and I have only heard her speak as an old, loopy woman who loved Michael Jackson (ew). so in that respect, Lindsay kinda nailed it. the fact that she can do "so so" being the CRACK HEAD she is really makes me sad. Lindsay had so much potential. poo poo.
Lindsay did not spend enough time with the script. It felt like she ran through the lines without considering timing, pacing.It was strange that she was much more convincing in the wig, as an older Liz. Before we take her seriously, she needs to take herself seriously. Her acting in Mean Girls was pretty elegant compared to her latest attempts. You can sense that she invested herself in the work then. I just dont think she cares as much as she says she does, maybe she should just retire and own it.
I'm watching it right now.
Her attempt at the accent is terrible.
If anyone needs a link, I can supply.
Worst Acting Attempt Ever She was awful. The I'm so bored line was so bad it was laughable. The tacky Cleopatra wig looked like it was bought off a hooker. She made no attempt to sound like Liz at all.Who ever hired her for this movie needs to be fired.
Every single person who watched should be ashamed of themselves for keeping LL's career going for even one minute longer.
I tried to watch it but after 10 min I had to turn the channel. That was beyond bad and sadly it wasn't all Lindsay Lohan's fault. Yes the majority of it was her horrible acting but it was also bad everything else too. It wasn't funny to watch I actually felt uncomfortable by the whole thing.
Liz = No. Dick = Yes.
@Amber, This wasn't the 1st Liz Movie. Sherilyn Fenn played her in another TV movie 500 years ago and Liz tried to stop it. I never saw it, but she was a dead-ringer for Liz back in the day (even if her beauty mark is in the wrong spot)!
Yeah, Lilo blew. I tuned-in for 15 minutes after The Walking Dead and then I shot my television.
No, didn't watch but I did follow Kathy Griffin's live tweeting as she watched.
Oh, Jesus. Daddy Michael compared Lindsay to Meryl Streep today:
I hope they show this in Australia given that Grant Bowler is in it! I shall have to wait and see…
^ i still can't believe Nucky had the balls to do it himself.
Don't worry,no one spoiled anything. No one died. "but let's talk about who's going to die!" LOL.
I read about the real Nucky Thompson (Johnson) on wiki, inneresting!
@auntliddy – I miss Jimmy too! I cried when he died and was depressed for DAYS after. I'm hopeless at figuring out what will happen – it totally blindsided me.
Oh man! I went in to it with low expectations…and it was hoooooorrrie. I was hoping she would have taken it seriously…watch some Liz movies, research her facial expressions..I felt she was playin dress up the entire time. I kept waiting for a bigger bomb moment. I had hope in her but lost it all as she clearly is insane…watch shell probably say she'll win an Oscar!
Just the trailers for this movie are bad enough…and besides, Walking Dead was on!!! Woohoo, we're one step closer to a Merle/Daryl Governor/Rick showdown. The kid that plays Carl acts better than LL. Hell, Little Baby KickAss can act better than LL.
I know but i still miss jimmy. He seemed capable of redemption. Gillian slowly destroys everyone around her, like an acid. She is so toxic.
I watched the whole thing. There was not a single moment that was reminiscent of Elizabeth Taylor. Lohan just showed up and spoke her lines, she didn't even try.
Yes, and the movie by which i judge all other awful movies.
Auntliddy- I feel like Jimmy wanted to die and for the story, had to die. After seeing that episode with his mother while he was at college..ick. Gillian needs to go away.
Owen was sad, but ive not recovered from jimmy yet!!!! Gillian is one champion bitch, she cant anyone having any happiness at all. She just has to ruin it. I agree, nothing better happen to richard!!!!!!!!!!
I had a bottle of wine set up to drink every time something ridiculous happened….after 2 hours I ended up with a full glass poured that wasnt even sipped on because this movie was so horribly written. Lindsay was horrible, the way the movie was set up with them in all black dictating their own story was stupid….I felt with Linds when she screamed about how "bored" she was lol
New Life, Mother May I Sleep With Danger is a modern day classic!
We watched Family Guy instead. Plus, my husband would've never forgiven me for making him watch that shit.
Just finished watching it. I will never get that time back. It was bad. Just like the others have said. And bad bad not entertaining bad. Cringe worthy bad. So bad that it makes Tori Spelling in Mother may I sleep with danger look award winning. Bad!!!
I couldn't make it past 10 minutes, even though I 'd been looking forward to a campy good time… she is such a ba-d-d-d actress, and the voice, OMG! Elizabeth Taylor had such a sweet, brittle voice…
I attempted to watch it but kept losing focus due to the bad acting. My favorite bad scene was when she was on a bed and was hitting richard with a "flurry of fists" on his chest. I laughed so hard at that part. I truly hoped lindsay would find the actress from within and give a memorable performance but sadly its memorable in all the wrong ways. On another note this is probably lifetime's highest rated movie.
Hey, quit it with the BE spoilers! Not everyone has watched it yet!
I couldnt get past the voice either. Like Selma from the SImpsons. Smoked out!!!
It was awful.The writing, the actors, all of it.
The Walking Dead! Love it. I caught clips of that mess though. Wow.
Not only was she bad, the guy who played Richard sucked too. Every line out of his mouth sounded the same; happy, sad or angry. The accent was like a mix between Sean Connery and the Dos Equis guy. The older Liz wig was a mess, the sets looked cheap and the green screen…how do you mess up green screen work?! *faints like Lilo in her White Diamonds wig*
Gyp Rosetti is a dead man!!!!
Of course I watched the whiole thing and tweeted it.
Best line from twitter:
Someone out there Tara Reid is on the phone, "Two words- Grace Kelly."
I was hoping it would be entertainingly bad but it was only bad bad. It was LL in bad wigs spouting insipid dialogue while sounding like she had emphysema. I hope Lifetime got the ratings it wanted … I can't believe they hired her for her talent.
YES! And it was delightfully horrible. Cheesy, schmaltzy, corny whatever you want to call it. Lindsay sounded like she needed oxygen between takes. It was wonderfully awful. Thank you Lindsay Lohan.
@Mrsbearkcmo – Yes. ET had a very feminine, soft voice, but she could belt it out when she wanted to. Lilo sort of screeched with her indoor voice. Granted, the dialogue was horrible, but the actor who played Burton managed to do fairly well in spite of that.
Lilo play Liz playing Martha was the worst!
Nope, was watching The Walking Dead!
Cant wait to catch up on Boardwalk Empire & Homeland. ITA w/Richard being the man! Love him-I hope he kills Gillian….I hate her!
I agree Boardwalk was amazing. The line Capon spit out to close the episode was absolutely great and after a couple boring episodes early in the season, you now damn well there will be utter chaos and blood to come. Mix in some titties and 5* episode on the horizon.
She was so bad that I often found myself forgetting this movie was supposed to be about Elizabeth Taylor. And I agree with the earlier posts about her failing to even attempt to sound like Liz.
Did anyone else also find it funny how, when she was supposed to be punching at Richard Burton or throwing tables, ect. that she didn't look like she put any effort into it?
