Grade • F

DVD • If I didn't know better, I'd think that Lifetime's made-for-TV movie "Liz & Dick" — now out on DVD and Blu ray — was supposed to be a comedy. There is some entertainment value in laughing at how utterly awful this tale of Elizabeth Taylor (Lindsay Lohan) and Richard Burton (Grant Bowler) is.

It's actually a series of otherwise almost unrelated scenes strung together, connected by Taylor and Burton sitting in heaven talking about their lives. (I am not making this up.) There's all sorts of scenery chewing as the couple fight and make up, fight and make up, fight and make up.

There's probably a good drinking game in here someplace, but if you take a shot every time Lohan is a bad actress, you'll die of alcohol poisoning. —
