With less-than-flattering headlines routinely calling attention to Lindsay Lohan's every move, it's easy to forget that it was acting, not alcoholism, that initially put her on the map. Rumors of unprofessional conduct on sets and other bad behavior have long plagued the Bynes-hating tabloid fixture, making it no big surprise that she's had a notable gap in employment since her role in 2010's Machete.
For better or worse, that changes this coming month with Lohan assuming the titular role of Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's forthcoming Liz & Dick, debuting November 25th. The network, creator and collector of the most awesomely campy, awesomely schmaltzy, and awesomely bad cinema, feels like it couldn't be a more suitable home for what's destined to be the unintentional comedy event of the season.
It's a place where off-the-grid stars discreetly make ends meet, where former A-listers go to retire and D-listers dream of being discovered, and where cheesy made-for-TV originals and straight-to-DVD tales of murderous boyfriends and flocks of wild horses coexist in sweet, sweet harmony. In honor of the latest gem to grace the channel's airwaves, check out our exhaustive list of its other so-bad-they're-good classics: The 50 Most Ridiculous Lifetime Movies.
