* VillainBall: Whether they be men or women, the would-be supervillains in these stories tend to be done in relatively easily by their own arrogance and/or stupidity. (Occasionally you'll find one who's DangerouslyGenreSavvy, but even then he/she will be trounced in satisfyingly humiliating fashion.) The reason for this is simple: [[JustifiedTrope with only 90 minutes to work with, the baddie has to be dealt with in expeditious fashion]], even if this results in some laughable VillainDecay.

* In the Creator/VCAndrews novel ''Celeste'', it's mentioned that the events of the Cutler series by the same author (a girl discovers that she was kidnapped as a child, and has to go to a new family who are by turns abusive and neglectful) were turned into a Lifetime-esque movie.
** And now, ''Literature/MySweetAudrina'' and the Dollanganger book series have been adapted as films for Lifetime.

The {{Trope Namer|s}} is Creator/{{Lifetime}}, a cable TV channel in the United States with programming geared toward female audiences (or, at least, female audiences who conform to Lifetime's conception of its target demographic), which is well known for giving rise to the subgenre. Despite being the Trope Namer and TropeCodifier, Lifetime isn't the only source of movies in this subgenre; some of the most well-known (''Not Without My Daughter'') and most-parodied (''Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?'') movies weren't Lifetime Movies at all, although they now are frequently re-run on that channel.
