Tweets That Prove Everyone Thought ‘Liz & Dick’ Sucked As Much As You’d Expect
If you turned on your television Sunday night and were overwhelmed by the smell of something awful, it was probably emanating from Lifetime -- because that's when the erstwhile Women in Peril network aired the much maligned and over-hyped ‘Liz & Dick’ biopic starring Linsday Lohan.
The movie (which we think was an immediate camp classic) has been on the radar for months, most likely because Lifetime had to drum up ratings to make back all the money they paid to insure LiLo’s appearance. And based on the sheer quantity of tweets about the nuclear hot mess of a movie, people were definitely watching.
They just weren’t enjoying.
The critics had already weighed in – and didn’t have many good things to say – but on Sunday, it was Twitter’s turn. And Twitter was not pleased.

Here are just a few of the most amusing tweets we found, plus a couple bonuses as the end.
