The Forbes family lived in my neighborhood and I knew them well. This movie was so far off the mark in portraying his family, our town and the facts of the case that it's a total joke. The acting was far below even movie-of-the-week standards and those were easily the worst fake Tennessee accents ever committed to film. Lindsay Wagner sounds midwestern and Larroquette is channelling Louisiana. Among the glaring omissions from the movie were the popular local opinion Forbes was wrongly freed and the rape victims who promptly moved out of state upon his release. The only good to come from this awful TV movie is the big check Forbes surely earned for the rights to his story to go along with his fat settlement from the state.
