Let's be honest: If anyone were to play Meryl Streep in a biopic, Meryl would probably play herself because she's the only actress capable of taking on such an important role! But, Funny or Die decided to give Christina Applegate a chance in its Lifetime spoof, Meryl: The Lifetime Biopic.
Because we'll never actually get to watch the full-length feature on the small screen, we'll just have to do with Applegate taking on some of Streep's best movies, including Adaptation, Kramer vs. Kramer, The Devil Wears Prada and Doubt. Taking on the "performance of a lifetime in the role of a lifetime on Lifetime," Applegate does her best to take on powerhouse Streep.
But it looks like critics don't agree.
"Christina Applegate was the wrong choice to play Meryl," the voice-over jokes while Applegate sings Mamma Mia! style. "Honestly, it's like she's not even trying."
