Lifetime's biopic about Brittany Murphy is already in hot water and it hasn't even aired. Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti, slammed the project in a recent interview with Examiner.com.

"I am disgusted and outraged that Lifetime decided to produce such a trashy project, defiling the memory of my beautiful, talented daughter," he told Examiner.com. "'The Brittany Murphy Story' is an affront to everything my daughter was in real life. It's hideous, unauthorized and completely untrue."

He went on to call the network's casting "atrocious," claiming, "Amanda Fuller, the girl playing Brittany, looks nothing like her." Bertolotti has also used Twitter to slam the biopic about his late daughter, retweeting fans who agree with him and articles that call out the film.

When Lifetime released the trailers and teasers, they were mostly greeted with disdain. The movie looks rough, and as TV Guide reported, "takes low budget to a new level." Lifetime had no comment and Bertolotti did not return immediate request for comment.
