Party Mom

Yes, with all of the doom and gloom of other entries on this list, it is nice to see more relaxed Romance Story. Well, as long as they dont release Harry & Meaghan 2: Royal Bloodbath as a sequel. With the massive popularity of the couple, it makes sense that there would be a film taking a look at their journey to Altar. Additionally, it follows Lifetimes trajectory of covering more true stories, such as Coco Chanel, Magic Beyond Words: JK Rowling Story, and Lizzie Borden take Ax. Ironically, last one has least axe murders of three. As youve see, this list definitely has a bigger focus on more action-packed films from Lifetime Cinematic Universe. Harry & Meghan: Royal Romance doesnt have intense fight scenes or dark themes of betrayal. But it does have a nice, romantic love story for you to get lost in. Now, if youll excuse me, I am going to pitch my ultraviolet sequel idea to Lifetime

Promos show how women take up mantle leave by their husbands. But women are mothers too, so how to continue with movement while cooking and changing diapers should make for interesting TV.

6 The Pregnancy Pact

While Lifetime movies might seem like a tradition as old as cable itself, first one debuted in 1990, long after both cable TV and Lifetime Channel were well establish. Call Memories of Murder, film center on a woman with amnesia, who suddenly gets her memory back and then becomes convinced there is another woman out to get her. Consider it a relatively tame preview of what was to come, as it was followed by tawdry fare including: abduct: Fathers Love, co-Ed Call Girl, and numerous others. Needless to say, recipe work, and the network even set up its own respective Channel just for movies. Nowadays, Lifetime movies are commonly divided between a few respective categories: soapy biopics like Harry and Meghan: Royal Wedding, suspenseful thrillers involving family secrets, lust, and greedlike infamous Mother, May I Sleep with Danger, teenage-base dramas, and romantic comedies. And while some of these films are at times below cinematic standards, many still represent a qualitative leap over networks ' earliest output. In fact, Life is no stranger to the occasional Emmy nomination or positive review. The network has become a veritable hub for female talent, both in front of and behind the camera. Admirable qualities aside, Lifetime movies primarily persist as stuff of pure TV melodrama. In other words, these are films people love to hate or hate to love, with precious few exceptions. Every now and then, however, some genuinely engaging entertainment slips through cracks. To celebrate these iconic cable fixtures in their cheesiness and glory alike, Stacker uses IMDb data to rank Lifetime movies from best to worst, focusing on films with at least 1 450 user votes. In case of a tie, movie with more votes ranked higher. Counting down from 50, here are the bestand worstLifetime movies.

Before long, he was maxing out his parents ' credit cards and even watching pornography on school computers, all to feed his merciless addiction. While the premise might be vaguely relatable to swaths of high school students across the country, execution is about as campy as a TV movie can get. Starring former A-lister Lindsay Lohan at the height of her failed comeback, 2012s Liz & Dick chronicles the rocky romance between actress Elizabeth Taylor and actor Richard Burton. Despite respectable viewership numbers, film was not well receive, with the Hollywood Reporter referring to it as half trainwreck, half SNL skit. Meanwhile, if Life ever wanted to make a sequel, they have Taylors many other marriages to draw from. Life movies frequently rip their stories straight from headlines, and the 2010 Pregnancy Pact is no exception. The film takes direct inspiration from a real-life event involving a group of high school girls in Gloucester, Mass., All of whom allegedly agree to get pregnant at the same time.

5 Britney Ever After

As the FreeBritney movement surges on, Lifetime has chipped in with their own contribution: 2017 film Britney Ever After, which is now free to stream in its glorious entirety on YouTube. The Britney Spears biopic follows the pop princess's rise to fame, from her southern roots and early performances, to her highly publicized relationship with Justin Timberlake and, of course, her infamous paparazzi car-smashing breakdown in 2007. The Network added the film to its YouTube channel on Monday and it has been getting plenty of attention since, but not because it masterfully depicts Spears ' life. Twitter has been busy streaming movies and subsequently ripping them online of its music, acting and plot. Although viewers find plenty to take issue with, most of the criticism stems from the films ' soundtrack. You wont hear Oops! I do It Again, Gimme More or even Circus. In fact, you wont hear single original Spears song at all in Britney Ever After, because Lifetime couldnt secure rights to Spears ' music. So, they include covers that Spears recorded over the years, including some Rolling Stones music. Twitter was not impressed. Like how you do Britney Spears movie without SONGS? Sksjysudndksksmmsmsm, One user tweet, while another added, Watching Britney Ever After and wow what a heap of garbage. Music especially. Others were new to discovering Britney Ever After, and it sounds like they now wish they hadnt. Currently watching BritneyEverAfter and it is even worse than I could have imagine, One viewer tweet, adding, I ca believe this. Yall should have been arrested lifetimetv. Since biopic chronicles spear earlier years with Timberlake, Lifetime of course take extra step to find some NYSNC lookalikes to portray his bandmates. And much like other aspects of Britney Ever After, films boyband was not sparred by Twitter critics. I didnt even know about Britney Spears movie but fake nsync has me DEAD! One write. At least one viewer found something to praise in the film, but it wasnt about the leading lady. Watching that Britney Spears ' Life movie and I must say the best part of this movie is this dudes Justin Timberlake's impression, He is spot on, they write. Too bad the movie wasnt about Timberlake.
