If there’s one network that has become a huge guilty pleasure, it’s Lifetime. The network continues to make movie safter movies that are must-see events. This weekend is no different with Christina Ricci starring in Lifetime’s version of Lizzie Borden, a woman accused and acquitted of the ax murders of her father and stepmother. Lizzie Borden Took an Ax has all the elements that make for a good Lifetime flick: drama, murder, brooding men, inappropriate relationships, mystery and intrigue. That’s what makes it such a perfect celebrity biopic. Like Anna Nicole Smith (Anna Nicole) and Elizabeth Taylor (Liz & Dick) before her, Lizzie joins a long list of celebs who got the Lifetime treatment. However, there are so many more that we want made!
Can you imagine the Lindsay Lohan story, a rags-to-riches-to-rags journey about Lohan’s road to stardom?! It would be epic. Or something more timely, such as former Olympic ice skater Tonya Harding‘s journey to the Games. Tonya Harding: On Bended Knee (It’s a working title). Oprah Winfrey, Cory Monteith, Rihanna and Chris Brown all come to mind as other potential perfect subjects of a must-see Lifetime biopic. If these happen, we’ll definitely be watching.
