Bret Easton Ellis praises 'Liz & Dick': 'The haters went overboard'

Bret Easton Ellis has revealed that he "thoroughly enjoyed" watching the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick.

The film, which aired last night, was the focus of much attention as it featured Lindsay Lohan's acting comeback.

However, Ellis strongly disagreed with the largely negative reviews, writing on Twitter that the movie was "fun".

"I'm thoroughly enjoying and consistently amused by Liz & Dick," he said. "The haters went overboard on this one."

Ellis added: "All I keep thinking: Liz & Dick is just chintzy fun and I'd rather sit through it twice than endure something like The Sessions again."

Ellis is working with Lohan for upcoming thriller The Canyons but insisted that their professional relationship had nothing to do with his enjoyment of Liz & Dick.

"I've taken Lindsay to task before: the fun I'm having watching Liz & Dick has nothing to do with the fact that she's in The Canyons," he said.

"If you get jacked-up over something as charmingly innocuous as Liz & Dick then there is a bigger problem at large than the movie itself..."

Last month, Ellis appeared to criticise Lohan for missing a work appointment on The Canyons.
