Critical reviews of Sunday night's Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz & Dick may have been harsh, but they weren't anything in comparison to the drubbing that the Lifetime film received by those who were live-tweeting it when it aired.

STORY:  'Liz & Dick': What the Critics Are Saying

Lifetime prominently promoted live discussion of the film with the hashtag #lizanddick in the corner of TV screens and the tag quickly became popular on the social-networking site. On a quiet holiday evening, few things seemed to unite many Twitter feeds more than making quips about the Lifetime movie. 

The vitriol, of course, also brought out a backlash to the backlash of the film, including Lady Gaga and author Bret Easton Ellis (who wrote Lohan's next film, The Canyons). Both of them defended Lohan's performance in Liz & Dick.

Below, a few of the prominent Twitter reactions to the film:
