Editorial Reviews

For nearly a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance often called the marriage of the century was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi worldwide, their love affair was played out entirely in front of the media from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture Cleopatra, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Liz and Dick shared an undeniable love greater than most people could ever dream of.

There is something strangely fascinating about the casting of a downward spiraling Lindsay Lohan as screen icon (and two time Oscar winner) Elizabeth Taylor. Lohan is an easy target, to be sure, so I entered into the Lifetime original movie "Liz & Dick" with a reasonably open mind. It's true that this TV movie was lambasted critically, but it also became one of cable's biggest ratings hits of 2012. So, if nothing else, the Lohan factor created a certain curiosity. In that way, Lifetime came out the winner. That said, I might not have expected greatness, depth, or insight out of "Liz & Dick," but I did anticipate a bit of fun. With a history of cheesy and over-the-top movies, I thought this might be a genuine guilty pleasure. Highlighting the tempestuous relationship between Taylor and Richard Burton (played by Grant Bowler, now on SyFy's Defiance), there was lots of room for campy fun. Alas, this never comes to fruition. Too superficial to be truly enlightening and too serious to be much fun, "Liz & Dick" doesn't make much of a mark at all.

The movie is centered, for the most part, around the Cleopatra shoot that put Burton and Taylor together for the first time. Not much in the way of introduction is done for either, so hopefully you know something about each career-wise to put the story into context. Taylor is a diva, Burton a charming boozer. Both are married, but are somehow drawn to one another. Looking at the movie, however, there is nothing to establish this as a grand passion or a legitimate romance. There is a mild opposites attract flirtation and suddenly they are dissolving their marriages. They get together only because they're supposed to, to heck with demonstrating any real drama or relationship building.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrifying May 21, 2013
Format:DVD
First and foremost, I am offended on behalf of the late, iconic Elizabeth Taylor, whose talent and beauty was lambasted by the selection of Lindsay Lohan to portray her. Liz Taylor was known for her extraordinary acting ability, her glamorous lifestyle, and her beauty. Lohan is known as a mediocre actress, who squandered what little talent she had by her obsurd and childish lifestyle choices.

This could have been a fantastic movie, but the choice of cast was so far off the mark it became laughable. Shame on you Lifetime for demeaning Elizabeth Taylor with this shoddy, pitiful, tabloid-esque portrayal of her life.

1.0 out of 5 stars I (don't) want more! March 1, 2013
Format:DVD
Everyone knew "Liz and Dick" was going to be a disaster as soon as it was announced. Two reasons why:

1. It was being made by the Lifetime Network, with a TV-movie budget.
2. It starred Lindsay Lohan.

The pessimism was not unwarranted -- this movie is so bad that I'm surprised Richard Burton hasn't risen from the dead just to throw liquor bottles at the people responsible. I actually hoped that it would be bad in a hilarious, campy way, but instead it's just hideously awkward, cheesy and cheap. As Lohan croaks at one point, "I'M SO BORED!"

The story is narrated by Elizabeth Taylor (Lohan) and Richard Burton (Grant Bowler) from the afterlife. Apparently the heavenly host really want to hear the inside scoop on their relationship. It started during the shooting of "Cleopatra," when Shakespearean actor Burton was unexpectedly cast opposite the scandal-generating superstar Elizabeth Taylor.

Well, despite a rocky start, they began a torrid affair. Their romance destroyed both their marriages (her fourth, his first) and caused an even bigger scandal than her previous homewrecking affair. Over the next twelve years, they lived in a whirl of fights, lovemaking, tragedy, alcoholism and gems -- only to divorce, marry and divorce all over again.

The story of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton really needs a HBO miniseries, because it's impossible to cram twenty-plus years of high drama into a 90-minute Lifetime movie. And the rushed pace is only one of the movie's problems -- cheap-looking costumes, awful greenscreen, and a choppy disjointed narrative.

And yes, the writing is eye-rollingly bad ("You do know I'm shagging him senseless, don't you?"), but not in a funny way.

1.0 out of 5 stars If your only as good as ...... May 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If the old Hollywood saying "Your only as good as your last picture..." is true; then Miss Lohan is in big trouble. Miss Lohan looks beautiful and captures the look of Elizabeth Taylor when sitting still...but then she moves and speaks and destroys the image compleatly. If you want to see a good movie on the life of Elizabeth Taylor watch Liz: The Elizabeth Tqylor Story starring Sherilyn Fenn. A Mini Serize that delivers in evey way! It is 5 Star . Anailable on DVD from StudioCanal in the United Kingdom. Miss Fenn captures Elizabeth Taylor perfect and delivers every line of a great script with prefection. Covers Taylor Life as a child and goes up to her last marriage. Every part is perfect cast and sets and costumes are lush and beautiful. It offers and delivers everything that Liz and Dick did not.

2.0 out of 5 stars I NEVER GO AFTER DUMPY WOMEN May 18, 2013
Format:DVD
Liz and Dick were the Brad and Angelina of their era...on steroids. The tabloids kept us inform of all the dirt in their life. This was a tabloid view at best.

The film is told in part as a flashback with narration by Liz (Lindsey Lohan) and Dick (Grant Bowler) starting with the filming of "Cleopatra." I thought Lindsey Lohan would be right for the role, although she played it without class and style. Oh, they did get the contacts right. I kept waiting for that moment to tie the film together, to make everything I was watching on the screen suddenly become meaningful. It didn't happen. Grant Bowler had the lines down, but face it...he doesn't command the stage presence of Richard Burton.

The screenplay was horrible. I don't think the film could have been any worse if John Belushi had played both title roles.
