Did You Know?

Trivia:
Although the film tells a story of over three decades, it was shot in 20 days. Grant Bowler, who plays Richard Burton stated "Everything was period, wigged, for both of us, so it was long days. Lindsay came at it with absolutely everything she had and so did I."See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Richard Burton was almost never called "Dick" by anyone - he had an intense dislike of this diminutive and never hesitated to let people know that. Close friends and relatives usually called him "Rich", in the Welsh manner, or simply "Richard", a formality he preferred. He often said that the only people who called him "Dick" were journalists pretending familiarity with him.See more »

A Tempest in a Teapot, 26 November 2012
Author: wes-connors from Earth

As we begin, the aged Shakespearean actor Grant Bowler (as Richard "Dick" Burton) appears to be near his death bed, writing a letter to Hollywood temptress Lindsay Lohan (as Elizabeth "Liz" Taylor). We flashback to their 1961 meeting, while beginning the epic "Cleopatra" (1963). He is smitten. She plays hard-to-get, but succumbs quickly. Both are married, which causes great scandal. "Liz & Dick" get married and divorced, twice. They drink a considerable amount of liquor and burn countless cigarettes, which are the common denominators as the jaded couple travel around the world...

This was promoted as a blockbuster film event, but turns out to be a substandard TV-movie. The reason for the hype was Ms. Lohan's (then) status as a celebrity. Her public escapades would seem to suggest she might bring some depth to the role, but it does not happen. Her "Elizabeth" is not as entertaining as the original, by a long shot...

The make-up successfully suggests Ms. Taylor, though it also changes Lohan into both Natalie Wood and Suzanne Pleshette, as the years roll along. The script most obviously lacks Ms. Taylor's sense of humor - and her fondness for frequent obscenities. Her co-star is likewise restrained. One of the better sequences, directed by Lloyd Kramer, occurs when the couple play "rock the trailer" while spouses Eddie Fisher and Sybil Burton arrive on the set. Confusingly pieced together, "Liz & Dick" ends quickly and without any sense of the famous couple's friendship. There simply isn't much story here.

*** Liz & Dick (11/25/12) Lloyd Kramer ~ Lindsay Lohan, Grant Bowler, David Hunt, Theresa Russell
