Lindsay Lohan Panned for Taylor-Burton TV Flick
[An Nahar] Lindsay Lohan has earned decidedly mixed reviews for her latest role -- her bid to turn a page on legal troubles -- with one critic calling her turn as Elizabeth Taylor "spectacularly bad."

The respected Hollywood Reporter pulled no punches in its review of TV movie "Liz and Dick," about the film legend's stormy relationship with actor Richard Burton, Lohan's first project since a string of court appearances.

"Both an awful mess and an instant classic of unintentional hilarity," it said in summarizing a 1,200-word hatchet job by its critic, who opined: "Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish."

"It should come as no great surprise that ("Liz & Dick") movie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad. After all, it's Lohan, more memorable in the tabloids than she ever was as an actress," he added.

"But whatever you do don't miss 'Liz & Dick.' Drinking games were made for movies like this. The best part is that it gets worse as it goes on, so in the right company with the right beverages, (it) could be unbearably hilarious."

#5  It almost as if her life was pre-determined for her since she was a child, + that her career is being deliberately covertly sabotaged by the powers that be because she met or knew Osama???

Or at least her parents did???

Too many skeletons that have to stay hidden no matter the price or consequence.
