(Newser) Liz & Dick premieres Sunday, but some critics are already having a LiLo-bashing party after watching the Elizabeth Taylor biopic, Fox News reports. "It’s just bad. Her voice—she sounds like herself, a smoker from Long Island, and there is no chemistry with her co-star, and she was clearly not prepared," says one early viewer. Most reviews so far agree Lohan was not the best choice, but here are the best lines from the cattiest review, by Tim Goodman in the Hollywood Reporter:

  • "It should come as no great surprise that Lifetime's Liz & Dick movie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad. ... Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish. But, whatever you do, don't miss Liz & Dick. It's an instant classic of unintentional hilarity."
  • "Drinking games were made for movies like this. And the best part is that it gets worse as it goes on, so in the right company with the right beverages ... 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."
  • "Anyway, on to the parts of the film where people walk and talk. The talking part doesn’t turn out so well for Lohan. There is not one minute in this film where she’s believable."
  • "At one point, Lohan has to shout, 'I won’t live without you!' and then run down a hall. It’s like a high school play."
Don't expect LiLo to learn anything from all this: TMZ reports that she refuses to read any reviews of her performances. (Click to read Goodman's hilarious review in full.)
