I've compiled a list of the reviews. You'll notice I only used reputable sites. If I used ones like Red Cloud keeps using (like Hollywood Life), the list would be WAY TOO Long :

NY Times: Mostly, of course, there’s the casting problem. The choice of Ms. Lohan is a gimmick that will certainly draw attention and probably viewers. But it’s not a kindness to that actress, who fails to deliver the kind of breakthrough performance that augurs a comeback.

ABC News: If you tune into this mess of a movie, premiering Sunday night on Lifetime, it will be because you want to see how bad Lindsay Lohan is in her supposed comeback.
Spoiler alert: she ain't back yet. Not with this.
Her voice slips frequently into her Long Island rasp. Liz's vodka-fueled breakdowns recall Lohan's litany of arrests, probation violations, and rehab stays. Great actors disappear into roles. Lohan photo-bombs this one.

Hollywood Reporter: Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish. The talking part doesn’t turn out so well for Lohan. There is not one minute in this film where she’s believable. The moment Lohan appears in this get-up, it’s impossible not to laugh. It really does look like SNL.

Yahoo: Lifetime's "Liz & Dick" is very bad, just as you knew it would be. Lohan doesn't look like Taylor, just like someone wearing knockoffs of her clothes and diamonds. She also doesn't sound like her, or seem to be making any attempt to.

USA Today: In Liz & Dick (* out of four), Lindsay Lohan only barely calls to mind Lindsay Lohan.
She doesn't remotely resemble Taylor physically — the face is too round for Taylor in Cleopatra, the body too thin for Taylor in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf — and her performance doesn't resemble
any sentient human being emotionally. The surprise is that this comeback turn only barely resembles the promising young star we saw in Lohan's early movies, to the extent that you begin to wonder whether that star ever really existed.

Newsday: Suffice it to say, Lohan's no Taylor (not that anyone is or ever could be). But poor Linds doesn't stand a chance. As seen here, her skills are rudimentary — made rustier by a long absence and a lot of other extracurricular activities. She delivers lines dutifully, competently, and at times woodenly, but she also looks like someone who has to think about what she has to say before she says it." That's usually called "sleepwalking through a role" instead of actually "occupying" one. Lohan is somewhere in-between most of the time, though closer to sleepwalking."

NY Daily News: Elizabeth Taylor loved diamonds. This new movie about her life feels more like rhinestones....It's tempting to say the movie's big problem is that Lohan is no Liz Taylor. And she isn't — though that's not entirely her fault. There aren't all that many actresses, or women, who can stop a room simply by walking into it. Liz Taylor
in her prime could do that. She could make men melt. Lindsay Lohan's Taylor does not.

NY Post: Lohan, in character as Taylor, is often so believable you might think you’re seeing the real thing, but then every once in a while she’ll backslide and deliver lines that sound DOA.

Huffington Post: All it really does is make you sad about what's become of Lindsay Lohan, and wonder at the motivations of the filmmakers who put her in this cheap-looking, exploitative movie. Whatever she has been doing the last few years, it doesn't look as though she's been working on her craft. In "Liz and Dick," she delivers Taylor's clunky lines with a flat Valley Girl tone and flounces around the production's ticky-tacky sets with lazy brattiness, not grand hauteur.

Variety: Still, Bowler is quite good as Burton, and Lohan certainly is adequate, barring a few awkward moments, thanks largely to the fabulous frocks and makeup (courtesy of Salvador Perez and Eryn Krueger Mekash, respectively) she gets
to model.

TV GUIDE: Liz & Dick, an epic of stunningly cynical and pathetic miscasting, a TV-movie so laughably inept it doesn't deserve to be on a first-name basis with anything resembling humanity. Even deep breaths seem too much to ask of
Lindsay Lohan these days, let alone capturing the essence of an exotic film goddess who reigned for years as a superstar sex symbol, by which of course we mean Elizabeth Taylor — who isn't so much rolling in her grave but yawning and laughing from the great beyond at this sorry and tacky exploitation of her torrid history with Richard

Time: But Liz and Dick is possibly the worst TV movie of the year, and therefore probably the most successful. Mind you, I don’t know if Lifetime intended its Elizabeth Taylor / Richard Burton biopic to be a must-watch disaster from the beginning. But it must have cast Lindsay Lohan knowing the rubbernecking attention she would get. But when she opens her mouth, it’s all over. Lohan simply never becomes another person the length of the movie: whether she’s meant
to be showing spunk or pique or passion, she gives nearly every line the flat delivery of the first read-through of a high-school play. Even when she hurls a bottle at Bowler during a fight, it’s lackadaisical, as if she expects the wall
to catch it.

Washington Post:At no point in this unenergetic revisiting of the legendarily volatile romance between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton does it actually feel like you’re watching Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Instead, we get Grant
Bowler brooding and boozing as Burton and Lohan whipping through Cleopatra costumes, awards-show evening gowns, mod headbands and, most comically, ’80s era-bouffant wigs like she’s the sole contestant in a Liz Taylor lookalike contest.
It’s unconvincing and lifeless but, sadly, not quite laughable enough to rise to the level of enjoyably campy little lark.

ILoveGosssip, great compilation! I just read the TV guide review and was going to post absolutely CREAMS her......some gems....

"Even deep breaths seem too much to ask of Lindsay Lohan these days..."

"... an epic of stunningly cynical and pathetic miscasting.."

.."Elizabeth Taylor — who isn't so much rolling in her grave but yawning and laughing from the great beyond at this sorry and tacky exploitation of her torrid history..."

"...pity poor Grant he attempts to pitch ludicrous woo ("We don't need a pool. I've got a whole ocean in you") to a blank-faced co-star with the allure of an asp. You'll find more exciting chemistry in a high-school lab...."

"The most authentic moment occurs when Liz informs Dick, "I can't tell you a thing about acting." Tell us something we don't know. And later, during one of the many tantrums and benders that constitute a story line, Liz cries, "I'm a joke!" The joke is on anyone who tunes in hoping for a memorable TV train wreck...."

Have to watch for this!GuyEndoreKaiser

Her beauty mark just changed sides! I replayed the scene three times. Embarrassing continuity error. Will definitely hurt awards chances.

A convincing Lindsay death scene would have at least provided some enjoyment, but no, she coughs and hacks all the way through it.

Credits are rolling, interspersed with some facts about amfAR donations. Liz truly was an amazing lady. Sad they pissed all over her legacy.

Someone just tweeted that Lindsay is in talks to play Pam Anderson in Pam and Tom.

I pop in here for a few fun minutes and I find good reviews in less than two minutes. Fortunately, most reviews are bad. Lindsay's huge number of fans and supporters will watch and like, regardless. Around 30% to 40% of all humans focusing any attention on Lindsay Lohan are haters and train wreckers. We want and need you. If the reviews were overwhelmingly positive, you would feel dispirited and defeated and would be less inclined to tune in. L&D gets bad reviews and Liftime and Lindsay benefit at the end of the day with huge ratings. Pro Lindsay humans are laughing hysterically!!!! And any human with brain matter knows the bad reviews are mostly, not exclusively, from goobers who want her in a jail cell. BIASED!!!!! If some reviewers are enchented by the movie and Lindsay's acting, many others will be enchanted. And this is EXACTLY why my good review links are pizzing you off. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

"LIZ & DICK is a riveting movie. It’s not salacious, but it is dramatic as these two superstars practically destroy each other’s life. For those who have written Lindsay Lohan off, she does a great job with Elizabeth Taylor, even though she doesn’t have her beauty. Whatever Lindsay’s personal problems, she acts up a storm in LIZ & DICK. In fact, all the acting is good, and the production values are top notch. The movie actually goes on location and captures the period in Spain, France, Switzerland, Mexico, and other locations as few movies have ever done."

On Wednesday, we had some excerpts from Lindsay Lohan’s epic crack-delusional Us Weekly interview. Now the new issue is out, and I just read the full interview with my mouth hanging open. This crackie!!!!! I cannot emphasize enough how ridiculous she is, how self-absorbed, how stupid, how delusional, how crazy, how crackie she is. She delivers crack lie after crack lie, crack obfuscation after crack obfuscation, crack denial after crack denial, all with a breezy crack attitude. The Cracken is living in her own little world where she’s a major movie star who just had a spot of bother with the law, but the law was unfair because nothing is ever her fault, ever

Can you even believe this? Casually mentioning suicide, chalking up the past six years of crack shena****ns to just being an experimental kid, blatantly lying about how professional she is, blatantly lying about taking responsibility for everything that happened while a moment later saying none of it was her fault…? Creating straw-man arguments for why she’s being “bullied,” acting like the legal system is out to get her, acting like a crack martyr. THIS BITCH. I can’t.

How can you look at Lindsay Lohan like this and not laugh? Credit: Lifetime.

Let’s be real: you’re not going to watch “Liz & Dick” because you want to know about the love story of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. If you tune into this mess of a movie, premiering Sunday night on Lifetime, it will be because you want to see how bad Lindsay Lohan is in her supposed comeback.

Spoiler alert: she ain’t back yet. Not with this.

WATCH: Lindsay Lohan: ‘I Do Relate to Elizabeth Taylor’

It’s impossible to sit in front of this hour-and-a-half long soap opera and convince yourself that you’re watching the legendary Liz. It’s always Lohan. Her voice slips frequently into her Long Island rasp. Liz’s vodka-fueled breakdowns recall Lohan’s litany of arrests, probation violations, and rehab stays. Great actors disappear into roles. Lohan photo-bombs this one.

It’s funny, because the whole thing is very meta. “Liz & Dick” focuses on the couple’s fraught relationship with the paparazzi. They hate it but they love it. At one point, Liz convinces the director of “The V.I.P.s” to cast her in the movie with Burton and boot Sophia Loren. Her logic: though he’ll spend more money on her fee, he can fire his PR team, because who needs publicity flacks when you’ve got Liz and Dick and the flashbulbs that follow them?

Apparently the folks at Lifetime thought the same thing. Hire Lohan, guarantee publicity, and who cares how good it is? As the Hollywood Reporter pointed out, her casting was a “bad idea in the dramatic sense, but it’s pure genius both for marketing and for belly laughs and drinking games.” (Take a shot every time Lohan bats her false eyelashes and you’re likely to end up comatose on the floor.)

PHOTOS: Lindsay Bares Body at ‘Liz’ Premiere

There is a lot of unintentional hilarity in “Liz & Dick.” Burton’s nicknames for Taylor include Ms. Bossy Boots and Mrs. Pudgy Digits. Lohan’s limp flinging of glassware looks like a high school play.

Best of all is the narration technique employed by the producers: Taylor and Burton dressed in all black, sitting on director’s chairs, recalling their own lives like guests on “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” It’s completely absurd. Burton dies and then reaches out to take Taylor’s hand as she talks about his death minutes later. You want to yell, “BUT HE JUST DIED!”
