Decent for a TV Movie
26 May 2005 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

I am not usually one for TV movies, but since Janel Moloney was playing the lead I decided to watch. This movie was based on the book written by Amber Frey, so it feels a bit slanted toward her perspective. (But I suppose she is the title character!) That being said, the movie seemed a good summary of the events surrounding the disappearance/murder of Laci Peterson that I had not followed despite the incessant news coverage of 2003-2004. The acting throughout was sufficient for what ultimately boils down to a murder investigation. Ms. Moloney plays a convincing Amber Frey (their physical resemblance was striking). (Casting should have gone after Ben Affleck for Scott Peterson - see SNL's Weekend Update from November 13, 2004.) Nothing too creative in terms of editing, as I found the second half to drag in terms of the story's flow. And did Zondervan books sponsor this production? The inclusion of "The Purpose Driven Life" seemed forced, and only appears to try to paint Amber Frey in an even more righteous light. I am not certain what purpose Scott Peterson's life will serve on Death Row. And the portrayal of Laci's mother, while touching, seemed to indicate that she'd lost all her children when in fact there is an older brother (Brent) and a half-sister (Amy). All-in-all, a decent portrayal of recent 'news' events.
