Lohan faces a meltdown
Question of the Day
Lindsay Lohan needs help — with her film career.
The 21-year-old actress got busted — again — for driving under the influence Tuesday and may be facing jail time.
She won’t get much comfort when her latest film, “I Know Who Killed Me,” hits theaters tomorrow.
The film, a thriller about mistaken identity, wasn’t screened for review purposes. That’s a sign the studio knows in which direction critics’ collective thumbs will point.
It couldn’t happen at a worse time for the talented actress, who has gone from It Girl to tabloid princess faster than “Harry Potter” books fly off the shelves.
“I Know Who Killed Me” comes mere months after her worst film to date, “Georgia Rule.”
That project broadcast Miss Lohan’s peccadilloes into the public arena. Her unprofessional behavior during the shoot caused a studio head to fire off an angry letter to Miss Lohan, a missive that eventually hit the press.
On-screen, the young beauty played a character so close to her public persona that she probably could have ignored the script and still nailed her performance.
Critics shredded it, and deservedly so. The public ignored it ($18 million in domestic box office receipts).
“Georgia Rule” followed last year’s lifeless teen romance, “Just My Luck” ($17 million), and inconsequential roles in 2006 boutique dramas “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Bobby.”
Only “Herbie: Fully Loaded” (2005) had box office clout ($66 million), but kiddie films are a pretty sure bet in Hollywood.
Where is the freshly scrubbed ingenue who starred in the terrific teen comedy “Mean Girls” (2004)?
Gitesh Pandya, editor of www.boxofficeguru.com, says “Mean Girls” turned her from a Disney kids star into a teen attraction.
