Poor Lindsay Lohan: Sharp-tongued Journos Watch ‘Liz And Dick’ and Give it Sour Reviews

Lindsay Lohan‘s unanticipated return to acting, assuming the role of Elizabeth Taylor, played out on the small screen last night. It was Lifetime’s movie of the week: Liz and Dick. As the network chants, “Your life. You’re time.” The consensus among media types who took the time to watch was that the movie wasn’t just bad, but horrific, which came through in their biting critiques on Twitter.

“I’m not sure but I think Lindsay Lohan just trolled us all,” BuzzFeed editor Stacy Lambe wrote. And New York mag’s Dan Amira: “The hashtag #lizanddick may look a lot like #lizarddick, but don’t get your hopes up, it’s #lizanddick.”

Fox News and Commentary Radio Host Todd Starnes advised, “I think it helps if you’re drinking wine.”

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, Co-Host Mika Brzezinski said the movie was “the worst thing I’ve ever seen. … That was insanely terrible.”

“Even on Lifetime it’s the worst thing,” concurred Bloomberg NewsMargaret Carlson, a guest on “Morning Joe.” NBC’s White House Correspondent Chuck Todd echoed the sentiment, comparing it to a Saturday Night Live skit. “We’re going to find out that was all really comedy,” he said. “It’s a dark comedy. It’s hilarious if you look at it that way.”
