Seven's Olivia Newton-John biopic slammed for poor casting, accents and plot

Not watching The sighting comes after Olivia admitted she probably won't be watching the Channel Seven mini-series based on her life starring Delta Goodrem

No matter who takes on the challenge of playing the role of Olivia Newton-John, people will definitely have a lot to say about you.

Many viewers took to social media to express their opinions on the Channel Seven movie.

Part Two of Olivia Newton-John: Hopelessly Devoted To You airs on May 20 at 8.30pm on Seven. "So bad. Young Olivia was great but Delta is terrible", while another commented, "This is a true trainwreck..." "She should have played her the whole way through", Twitter user Glenn Millanta wrote.

Despite gaining an audience of 735,000 - the fifth highest rating slot of the evening - part one of the two-part miniseries was received poorly by viewers, specifically, the performance of lead actress Delta Goodrem for her portrayal of the Australian music legend.

Spieth made two bogeys in his round of 65 as both charged up the leaderboard in the morning with big crowds and loud cheers. Despite making six birdies over his first 16 holes, Lefty's week was unwound by eight bogeys and four double bogeys .

Let's all enjoy this song that Delta and Olivia did together to get us through until Sunday.

"I didn't watch it", she said. It's not their fault they were married to me or were my boyfriend, so I didn't want it to happen.

Goodrem, however, told TV Week she sought Newton-John's blessing before accepting the role. Last year's Paul Hogan biopic was criticised for appearing more like a parody of the Crocodile Dundee star with its bad wigs and cringe-worthy dialogue.
