The ironically anticipated Lifetime movie, starring perennial basketcase Lindsay Lohan, was pretty much universally slammed, most notably by Elizabeth Taylor herself.
No one is going to play Elizabeth Taylor, but Elizabeth Taylor herself.— Elizabeth Taylor (@DameElizabeth) July 23, 2010
Of course the tweet was sent long before the movie aired, or even before development had even begun. Taylor sent the tweet in July 2010, and died in March 2011. Lifetime announced the biopic in May 2011.

Watching "Liz and Dick" while I have several unwatched Homelands on the DVR. I AM THE PROBLEM.— James Urbaniak (@JamesUrbaniak) November 26, 2012
