'Liz and Dick' biopic aired in US on Sunday. Here's what the critics had to say...
Let's get straight down to it shall we?
The Hollywood Reporter: "Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish. But, whatever you do, don't miss Liz & Dick. It's an instant classic of unintentional hilarity."
The San Francisco Chronicle: "It's so terrible, you'll need to ice your face when it's over to ease the pain of wincing for two hours."
The Los Angeles Times: "Unfortunately Lohan and co-star Grant Bowler have about as much sexual chemistry as Kermit and Miss Piggy and none of that couple's tenderness."
Entertainment Weekly's Ken Tucker: "A peculiar, drab, damp little TV movie... No effort seems to have gone into Lohan's preparation other than to have her eyes tinted Liz-violet."
The folk on Twitter weren't so kind... The below are some choice comments picked up via Sky News.
Kat Corbett: "It's like watching the kid from The Parent Trap in a school play being stalked by a gladiator with a drinking problem."
Nicholas Dressel: "An actress who will never win an Oscar playing an Oscar winning actress in a movie that will never win any award."
Sophie Perrault: "Bad actors playing good actors or good actors playing bad actors? OR bad actors playing bad actors? I can't tell anymore."
BrianEsEnFuego: "Just finished watching #LizandDick and all i can think is how sad it is that LiLo can't even be nominated for Razzies for this. senseless tragedy."
It wasn't long before Michael Lohan waded in, taking to his own Twitter to say: "They know nothing about @lindsaylohan talent! She has more talent in her pinky then all of them together. You proved the critics wrong @LindsayLohan you are one of the best, so gifted, so amazing! Now apply it ALL! God bless you! And our family!" Even Dina?!
Anyway, the bad press hasn't deterred Lindsay from appearing on the small screen... she now wants to star in her own comedy series. Looks like she took the Hollywood Reporter's "instant classic of unintentional hilarity" comment on board.
A source told gossip website RadarOnline that Lindsay was advised to try her hand at a comedy TV series by "close friend" Charlie Sheen, who also helped her pay back her debts recently.
The insider said: "Lindsay has asked her manager and agent to look into getting her her own television sitcom. Lindsay feels that the small screen would be a great way for her to revitalize her acting career and that a comedy would be the best bet. Lindsay feels most comfortable doing comedy and it was Charlie Sheen that told her she should do it. Charlie told Lindsay that it was an easy way to make very good money and help her to get her movie career back on track. Lindsay is loving the idea of having her own sitcom and would love to play someone in a story based on her crazy life."
That's Charlie's answer to everything; star in a sitcom as yourself.
