Drew Peterson Reviews Lifetime Movie About His Life

Rob Lowe’s Drew Peterson: Untouchable aired last night on Lifetime, the channel ostensibly dedicated to the female viewer that is known for murder re-enactments and dramas about knocked-up, cyber bullied teens.  Real life Drew Peterson watched an early DVD from Will County Jail and has given his review. 

The preview clip of a garage door opening slowly to show Lowe/Peterson standing there declaring under his mustache ā€œIā€™m untouchable bitch,ā€ drew early praise for being comedic genius.  Apparently, it held up to its promise.  Peterson, accused of killing his third and fourth wife, found it "hysterical.ā€

And what about poor Stacy Peterson’s family?  Her sister had trouble recognizing her own characters and told the Chicago Tribune "It’s so inaccurate, I had to laugh." 

Lowe himself even seemed to have doubts, telling the AP of the Peterson role: "I didn’t feel like I resembled him on any level and there was no part of my sort of persona or who I am as a person that I can access to play him, so with no idea how I was going to do it, I said, ‘Yes.’"  

Apparently, the Ro Lowe School of Acting is just turning tragedy into comedy.
