Better than Fox's version.
21 January 2000 | by (Urbana, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Yes, during the early 90s I was obsessed about the Menendez brothers. I wanted to see what was going to happen to them. So I watched Court TV and everything else that was about the brothers. NBC portrayed the brothers as careful people who loved their parents, but was just put on the edge. The movie shows the lives of the brother and how their father Jose, (Edward James Olmos) treated them to "try to make them better people". The brother's mother Kitty (Beverly D'Angelo) tormented them until that couldn't take anymore. Both the brothers, Erik (Travis Fine) and Lyle (Damien Chapa) loved their parents, but thought that they did the right thing. According to the movie they did the "perfect murder", but the problem is they were caught. The movie goes sort of accurately with the events that happened with the real Menendez brothers. I loved this version better than Fox's and it would be very good as a Reference on this subject.
