    i watched most of it, and all i could do was laugh. The chick that played Brittany was a HORRIBLE choice. almost as bad as Linds playing Liz Taylor.
    the wigs were horrendous. Whoever played Alicia Silverstone looked like she was drunk when she put the wig on. In fact, ALL of the wigs were horrible.

    Yikes I watched it and I'm terribly disappointed in the casting. The girl that portrayed Brittany was not cast well at all. She looked nothing like her. She would do a good job as Mariah Carey maybe. But she is too curvy and her face is too full to be Brittany Murphy. Sherilyn Fenn did good, but oy.... the Simon Monjack guy looked nothing like him either. I think Oliver Platt would've been good for that role.

    There is so many theories about her life and death, this was just a weird movie. Let me know what you think panic!

    msdeb, did Alicia's wig look like a dollar store Halloween wig or what? OMG...

    I had it on in the background last night but had too many phone interruptions etc to give it much attention. I agree the girl who played her really didn't capture her essence at all. I don't want to say she was fat (like Brittany's dad did) but I think they would've been better off casting someone skinnier and maybe padding her for the earlier scenes. Part of Brittany's story was the total physical transformation she had and there was more to it than just changing her hair. I agree the Simon guy was lame but Sherilyn Fenn was a good choice for the mom.

    It was so awful, it was good and yes, the chick that played Brittany looked NOTHING like her. The dude playing Ashton Kutcher was pretty close, though.
