We have LiLo in a dark brunette wig, clutching a cigarette in an array of glamorous Elizabeth Taylor-esque dresses. She throws glasses, peers behind cat eyes in a turban and snuggles naked with her then-husband Richard Burton (played by Grant Bowler) in a bathtub.

"They drink, they fight, they fornicate," a voiceover says of the couple, as the camera cuts to various scenes of him chugging a vodka bottle, her opening a champagne and the duo kissing in bed.

"Controversial, Provocative, Scandal, Love Affairs, Diamonds, Paparazzi" screams the screen.

While viewers will likely be wary of Lindsay's portrayal of the screen legend, she at least has one fan in producer Larry A. Thompson.

"Lohan and Bowler, not only do they look like Taylor and Burton, but their acting together and chemistry really says to you that Liz and Dick live again. You can see it, sense it and feel the chemistry," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
