Confession: I’m Really Excited For <i>Liz & Dick</i>
You guys, Liz & Dick is finally premiering tonight on Lifetime! I can’t tell you how pumped I am. I mean it’s LINDSAY LOHAN. She hasn’t been in anything since that horrific I Know Who Killed Me. Now, I know a lot of people are rooting for Lindsay to suck in this movie, but I’m pulling for her success.
I watch Mean Girls on a fairly regular basis (like at least once a week) so I can’t help but feel for this girl who had such a bright career ahead of her. Yes, her recreational activities have gotten her into trouble and she’s been a hot mess. But I’ve always wanted to see LiLo get her shit together and just act. Tonight could be the night!
Were her producers scared to hire her? Duh. Anyone was. But they gave her a chance and had a lot of insurance and the movie got made. Honestly, if anyone was to play Elizabeth Taylor, it’s Lohan. She’s the perfect tragic character and is a spitting image of Taylor in the promos. And naturally, in true Hollywood fashion, the film is getting terrible reviews.
I don’t know if this is a Lifetime thing or a Lindsay Lohan thing, but either way, critics are out to get this movie. I don’t even care if it’s a trainwreck. Lifetime movies are often so bad they’re good anyway. No one ever set out and said this is the greatest movie of all time. I’m just ready to see little LiLo back on the screen because it’s about time.
You can catch Liz & Dick tonight at 9/8 Central on Lifetime!
Are you going to watch it? How do you think Lindsay will do?
