The actor did a good job impersonating this awful man.
Lily of the Valley
I think the movie was great and Rob Lowe creeped me out a bit on how good he was playing someone so sure of himself that he wouldn't get caught.
V. Larkins
He is still fighting the courts and maintaining his innocence.

In the realm of Lifetime network's "ripped from the headlines" genre of movie making, let's just say that most leave a lot to be desired. The results are mostly sensationalized suppositions put together for entertainment purposes as opposed to a serious contemplation of real life events. But as long as you know that's what you're getting, some definitely fare better than others. "Drew Peterson: Untouchable" is one of their efforts that might actually surpass your expectations. Rob Lowe steps into Peterson's shoes and attempts valiantly to recreate his brashness and bravado. While his performance can border on the maniacal, this over-the-top caricature of evil may lack subtlety but it is eminently watchable. Despite the actual case being unresolved, the movie pulls no punches in its assertion about what happened. But again, it is a fictionalized account and not a literal retelling of the crimes (and alleged crimes) represented.

The movie introduces a Drew Peterson that is outwardly charming, but riddled with jealousy and pettiness. The story picks up as Peterson's third marriage to Kathleen Savio (Cara Buono) is near its end. He meets another young woman (Kaley Cuoco plays bride number four Stacy), and starts his fatherly seduction. Stacy and Drew have a fairy tale romance, even as Savio warns her of Peterson's unpredictable volatility. Convinced that Savio is the one that is skewed, Stacy becomes a stepmother to Peterson's kids and settles in before she starts to see signs of Peterson's controlling nature. One "accidental" drowning and an infamous missing person case later, and Drew Peterson has become a media sensation. While much conjecture is inherent in this story (Stacy is still considered a missing person), the movie does a great job handling the aftermath of the events.

I loved the movie,mostly because all life time movies are the same.although when a movie based on a true story is released..it always catches my attention more..I loved this movie because it stayed close to the case...could they have maybe added more about him and his first wife sure..but you gotta remember..they can't do to much seeing how it could incriminate the real Drew Peterson..So it still had to be a little mystery to it...Honestly..if you wanna watch it..Rent it..if you a true Fan of true story's.and all that then buy it..it is good enough to watch more then once..This is probably the first one ive seen in a long time that was true and it stuck 100% to the case and with a great actor playing the real life person..

A really solid, believable performance by Rob Lowe...very against type more than any film I've seen him do. Lowe wouldn't have been on my casting list NOT because he isn't a good actor just I never saw him do a role as this, which elevates him to a GREAT actor! He plays 10-15 years older than himself with such cocky arrogance Peterson himself must have been flattered and proud to have a name such as Lowe's portray him! The movie itself doesn't live up to Lowe's performance. I wish it started from THE BEGINNING of the story but starts more 2/3rds into the story. You end up feeling like you missed an hour of the movie or something. The Lacey Petersen movie with Dean Cain was much better done.

Still worth the buy, just hang loose 3-4 months and pick it up for $2.00 + shipping.

Rob Lowe is the last person you'd think of to play Drew Peterson, but he does an amazing job. In fact, he was even more creepier than the real Drew! This movie is based on the book "Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sgt. Drew Peterson" by Joe Hosey, but don't expect this film to be accurate. If you haven't been following the Drew Peterson saga, don't look to this film to fill you in. Anyway, great movie, most of the cast did well - the woman who played Stacey Peterson came off as very annoying to me....

It's always difficult to make a movie about a murder case that's still being adjudicated in the courts. You can't actually show the murder being committed. On the one hand, you must be positive enough to provide the film with some definite form and to give the viewer some sense of learning the facts of the case. But on the other hand, you must avoid libeling the accused.

Generally, this film negotiates that fine line satisfactorily. Drew Peterson isn't shown actually committing any murder. However it's plain that the producers are projecting him as the guilty party.

The acting is fairly good in this regard. Except - Bob Lowe uses the technique of squinting too much to signal evil intent. All that squinting is distracting and not the kind of obviously malevolent face that any actual sociopath would be likely to present to the world.

Also, most of the women in Drew's life are shown here as looking like virtual clones of each other. Drew's last two wives and most of their female relatives are difficult to distinguish from each other. They all have the same blonde hairdos, are about the same age, and are the same general "types." I felt as if I'd been catapulted into a less glamorous version of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" music video, with its famous back-up of eerily identical mannequin women. In reality, Drew Peterson's last two wives at least were quite different-looking.

If you've been following the case at all, you probably won't learn a lot that you didn't already know from this movie. You might gain a little more insight into the combination of possessiveness, boredom, and disdain that characterized Drew Peterson's attitude toward the "used" women in his life. But whether you're familiar with the case or not, you'll probably be drawn into this representation of ruthless disregard.
