DVD Review LIZ & DICK
Exploitive much? Lindsey Lohan brings her tabloid gravitas to a movie picking over the bones of the woman, whose life was the material of tabloid legend. Not very good as a biography, not very good as a movie, this film careens from cringeworthy to boring. For Lohan completists only (or maybe Grant Bowler fans).
Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway star in this stunningly realized interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale of broken dreams, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the endurance of the human spirit. This cinematic event can now be experienced over and over again.

This extraordinary adventure-filled saga is the historic epic for a new generation.
