Despite all of the fuss that’s been made over Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming turn as screen legend Elizabeth Taylor in “Liz & Dick” and the high-profile nature of the troubled production, it is, after all, still a Lifetime movie.
And watching the teaser (below) for the biopic, which co-stars Grant Bowler as Richard Burton and premieres on the network in November, it’s those cheesetastic Lifetime Original elements that come through, from the weeping and bottle-hurling to the romantic grappling in pools and bathtubs. “You just ended your fourth marriage?” someone asks Lohan-as-Liz. “Who’s counting?!” she gasps back, outraged. “Lawrence of Arabia” this is not — but it might actually be ghoulishly trashy celebrity fun.
