The trailer for Lindsay Lohan's Liz & Dick is one of the worst things you will ever see

Sep. 21, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Lindsay Lohan may be a punching bag for the media, but she doesn't make it hard for us. She had such promise as an actress, but now she looks like a wax sculpture of herself come to life. Between SCARY MOVIE 5 and this Lifetime original movie, Lohan has officially sunk to a new low.

Lifetime is not exactly the bastion of quality filmmaking, so I don't know why I expected more from this project. Elizabeth Taylor is an icon of Hollywood and to have her story told in what boils down to a joke is an embarrassment to her legacy.

LIZ & DICK stars Lohan and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton. They could have made this into a pretty damn good theatrical release if only they had cast someone like George Clooney for Burton and Olivia Wilde as Taylor. Now that would have been a cast.

When people responsible said right away that the 2 actresses they want for playing Liz Taylor are Lindsay Lohan or Megan Fox, you had to know it meant trouble.

I am no hater. I believe that Megan Fox, although not great, has more talent than people give her credit for. I also believed Lohan had some real talent as a child and that her descent to Hell is a tragic story, one that I hope will have a happy ending.

But when you cast a movie icon like Liz Taylor, you go for the big guns. You

But when you cast a movie icon like Liz Taylor, you go for the big guns. You try to get Portman, Hathaway or McAdams and you probably end up with a Michelle Williams or a dark horse no one saw coming. What you don't do is give the part to an actress who's famous but needs a credibility boost.

I just watched the Lifetime WIlliam and Kate for kicks and giggles and while it was awful, it was enjoyably so. "The uploader has not made the video available in your country", but from what I've seen on E! News, this looks to remove the "enjoyable" part and is probably confirmation that Lifetime should not actually make movies about real people's lifetimes. George Clooney as Burton and Olivia Wilde as Elizabeth Taylor is something I would much rather see.

Blech

All I could think of when Lohan opened her mouth to deliver that one line was "Oh Hey! It's Lindsay Lohan!" Did they think this was gonna work? Oh and for the extra tidbit: Olivia Wilde as Liz Taylor? Dude, come on...

Come on, that's an awful photoshop job. Besides, I love Olivia but where not talking about the same caliber here, or even the same type as Liz Taylor.
