Saying Lifetime’s track record with celebrity biopics has been less than stellar is the equivalent of calling Hurricane Sandy a light drizzle. Most range from train wrecks at best and unwatchable offenses against God and man at worst (looking right at you Liz and Dick).
The good people at Funny or Die have taken notice and present to you Meryl: The Lifetime Biopic. Christina Applegate stars as the titular greatest actress of all time, or at least as grossly underprepared versions of Streep’s most recognizable characters.
They greats are all here: The Devil Wears Prada, Doubt, Mamma Mia…probably for the best they left Sophie’s Choice out of it.
