The 50 Most Ridiculous Lifetime Movies

42. Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story

Original Air Date: July 18, 2011
Director: Paul A. Kaufman
Stars: Poppy Montgomery
Lesson Learned: Some authors' stories are best left untold—at least on the Lifetime screen.

We're pretty certain wordsmith J.K. Rowling never would've approved this beyond-lame biopic, if she's even aware that it exists. The Harry Potter author has an inspiring story, no doubt, but just as we wouldn't want the Hogwarts crew tainted by some mediocre translation to the screen, we expect its creator to be extended the same courtesy—especially if we're about to get way too familiar with her love life. Mmm, just what you wanted: steamy PG-13 makeouts with Rowling's former husband, Jorge!
