According to Lindsay Lohan’s friends, the actress wasn’t prepared for the harsh criticism she was about to face for her performance in the Lifetime movie, ‘Liz & Dick’. Apparently the actress was hoping for a career comeback, but instead most people are now convinced she’s sealed her fate as an actress.

“Lindsay is devastated by the response to the film,” a close friend of the actress tells The Huffington Post. “She has got used to all the negative press around her personal life but this is the first time she has experienced it about her work. No matter how bad things were going for her personally, everyone would always agree that she was a great actress.”

The Hollywood Reporter compared the Lifetime drama to a “Saturday Night Live” skit. The New York Times accused the actress of “sleepwalking through scenes,” whileEntertainment Weekly made fun of Lohan’s “frozen face” and “blank stare.”

“Lindsay has already read her own press,” one insider tells me. “She knew the script wasn’t strong but thought she would bring the role of Elizabeth to life. This is particularly heartbreaking as her acting was the only thing in her life that she knew was real. Now she is doubting that, too.”

However, not everyone agrees. Her dad, Michael Lohan, thought his daughter’s performance proved once again that she is right up there with Meryl Streep.

“Due to the content, I had to step away from a lot of the scenes, but regardless of what some of these so-called critics, who don’t have an ounce of talent in their bones say, Lindsay proved that she is an amazing actress. This was a different role for her at a difficult time of her life,” Michael tells The Huffington Post. “She still has what it takes to be the Lindsay Lohan that is one of Hollywood’s top actresses.”

Lindsay and her dad have one last hope in turning this perceived disaster around, as nothing matters more in television than the ratings, which have not been released yet.

“Everyone wants to make great TV but ultimately what determines if a show is a success is the ratings,” the Media Masters’ Amy Rosenblum tells The Huffington Post. “Ironically, if a show finds a huge audience then it doesn’t matter what the reviews or what the media elites think.”

Lifetime and Lindsay’s spokesperson did not respond to calls for comment.

I caught about half an hour of this hot mess last night. It was BEYOND bad. It DID look like an SNL skit. Honestly, I can’t imagine what they were thinking over at Lifetime. Did they know that Lindsay would be horrible, but just decided to go with her anyway for the publicity? Lindsay was an absolute JOKE as Elizabeth Taylor, almost an insult to her legacy. It was shocking how bad it was, really.

Did you see any of it?

Aww. 🙁 I almost feel sorry for her, and I’m one of those people who usually can’t stand the site of her face. But I’d rather her be acting in ANYTHING than in and out of jail or dealing with her horrendous family. I like her newish, rich hair color. The red is so pretty. I didn’t watch it and don’t plan to (I heard it was going to be terrible before it ever came out; I’m surprised she didn’t hear the rumors before now), but I still just feel really sorry for her for some reason.

Either my eyes are REALLY as bad as I feel they are, or I actually read that Michael Lohan put Lindsay’s acting in the same catagory as Meryl Steep? He HAS to be kidding! That’s like saying that Rhode Island is as big as California. I saw the previews of the movie and they didn’t look THAT bad, but I didn’t see the movie and now I have NO desire to.
