Netflix Now: Lind-Sue Lohan Edition

0

Apparently to signal the end of her once promising career, Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto V for using her likeness without her permission. Technically she’s right as GTAV uses everyone’s likeness in that game. If you’re a racist caricature, drug abuser, or sexist depiction of a woman, then GTAV has got you down pat. Good luck to Lindsay Lohan as she’s all three of those things.

Appropriately enough, two of her movies have returned to Netflix Instant: Mean Girls and The Parent Trap. Just give me Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen or Freaky Friday and we’ll call it a day. Also since it’s the first week of July, we have a hefty amound of new and returning additions to the service including Animorphs, Bad Santa, Cujo, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Hunt for Red October, Child of God, The Karate Kid, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Philadelphia, A Raisin in the Sun, My Girl, Sophie’s Choice, Lawless, and Journey to the West.
