Posted on Sun, 07 Sep 2014 21:16
Let's get one shit out of the way first: Yes, Lifetime is “The Brittany Murphy” story was as sensationalized and over-the-top as we all thought it would be.
All of the facts we knew about Brittany's premature death in 2009 were not mentioned or saved for a written slide at the end of the unauthorized biopic. remainder was a garbled mess telling her “story” from her humble New Jersey beginnings to the sad end of her career, including her rise to fame post-”Clueless,” her romance with “Just Married” costar Ashton Kutcher, her mother Sharon's battle with breast cancer, and her unusual relationship with her now-deceased husband, Simon Monjack.
finally, this jumpy tale didn't give us any answers about Brittany's mysterious death - it was more like one of Lifetime is original films, total with poor acting, dramatic music, and equally-dramatic lighting - but it did provide plenty of ridiculous and outrageous seconds. Below, we outline 16 of the film's most dramatic scenes and cringe-worthy quotes.
1. The whole intro
In the first few minutes of the film, we see Simon screaming, “You all killed her!” at the paparazzi after Brittany's death, then a flash of tweets from Alicia Silverstone, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Ashton Kutcher mourning her.
