LiLo's portrayal of Liz Taylor branded 'unbearably hilarious'

London, November 17 (ANI): Critics have panned Lindsay Lohan's performance in Liz 'n' Dick, a Lifetime TV production about Elizabeth Taylor.

No one has been more vocal than The Hollywood Reporter critic Tim Goodman, who's scathing review has created a great deal of buzz around the featurette, albeit for all the wrong reasons, the Metro reported.

The writer described Lohan's turn as the legendary actress as "unbearably hilarious" and an "instant classic of unintentional hilarity".

"Lohan as Taylor was a bad idea in the dramatic sense, but it's pure genius both for marketing and for belly laughs and drinking games," he wrote.

"And the best part is that it gets worse as it goes on... By the time Lohan is playing mid-80s Taylor and it looks like a lost Saturday Night Live skit, your body may be cramped by convulsions.

Unconvinced by Lohan's performance, Goodman slams producers for naively casting Lohan in the lead role.

"Luckily, you can't take your eyes off of Lohan playing Taylor, which the producers clearly thought would work because they share similar backstories," Goodman added. (ANI)
