Any Early Buzz on the Upcoming "Lucy" TV Movie on CBS?

Has anyone heard anything regarding how it is? Anyone read any reviews? Looks solid I suppse, though the guy playing Desi Arnaz looks WAY too thin. You think they would of made that actor gain weight for the role. Actress for Lucille Ball looks solid I suppse, though hard to tell.

Well, has anyone heard anything? Thanks.

Heard a few things, not very good:

Rachel York doesn't look or sound a thing like Lucille Ball, and one's heart goes out to her as the script for this ''three-hour movie event'' falls prey to the usual biopic mistake: recreating famous scenes. Thus, York (left), doing ''I Love Lucy'' classics like stomping grapes and cramming her mouth in the candy factory, comes off forced and unfunny. But her performance is touching nonetheless, especially when Desi Arnaz (a too-thin-for-Ricky-Ricardo Danny Pino) does her wrong by womanizing and gambling. But the rest of the story you've seen 10,000 times: A struggling performer triumphs over a tough childhood to become rich, adored, and needy for love. You can watch ''I Love Lucy'' in syndication and have a much better time. C- --Ken Tucker

TVGuide gave it a 6 out of 10, but can't find the article online.

Yep, heard about that EW article. That's the only one I've heard so far as was just wondering if others have started to surface yet.

Anyone know if this pic/script is anything close to the one Ben Bratt and Julia Roberts were rumored to be interested in a few years back?

Or was that a completely different Lucy/Desi pic....?
