The troubled actress' Elizabeth Taylor biopic, "Liz and Dick," premiered on Lifetime on Sunday, and was universally panned. The San Francisco said, “It’s so terrible, you’ll need to ice your face when it’s over to ease the pain of wincing for two hours."
Entertainment Weekly's Ken Tucker said the film was 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."
A source close to the situation 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.Lohan's panning as Liz might not prevent a network from choosing her for their next sitcom.
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.
The New York Times' Alessandra Stanley said the casting was sure to attract viewers. So might a sitcom. "The choice of Ms. Lohan is a gimmick that will certainly draw attention and probably viewers. But it’s not a kindness to that actress, who fails to deliver the kind of breakthrough performance that augurs a comeback."
Still, she does have some fans. Father Michael Lohan tweeted the following: "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!"
