Amanda Knox's Dad

The Lifetime Movie Is B.S.

10/6/2011 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006_amanda_knox_father_videoAmanda Knox's father Curt Knox  claims the Lifetime movie that depicts his daughter as a violent murderer is "bulls**t" -- and there's a lawsuit pending in Italy to yank it off the air.

Lifetime originally aired the movie back in February -- starring Hayden Panettiere -- and Amanda sued shortly after, claiming the movie exploited her and contained several "implausible" scenes.

Obviously, Amanda's murder conviction has been overturned -- and Lifetime has since edited the movie to reference the updated ruling.

If you watch the revised ending, Lifetime doesn't even spell "role" right. I think it should be pulled.

They misspelled the word "role" as "roll".

I agree, Hayden Panettiere is not that good of an actress.

Not because of just this case, but Hollywood or anybody for that matter, really can't be trusted to tell the truth.

How does he know? Was he there?? It's nice to know women can get away with murder now. I have a whole list of people that need to be killed...

Regardless of actual guilt or innocence it's not unlikely Hollywood and their ilk in the media world will make money at Meredith Kercher's expense. Likely perhaps Knox, and her family may too. More disturbingly, a not insignificant proportion of the public will relish movies and gobble up books on the subject.

Meredith - likely to be mercilessly exploited even in death and without justice by society. And just like Casey Anthony's innocent daughter having her life taken from her far too young, the real victim and only real tragedy story of those who were killed and suffered silently will fade into the background and or be used to help others profit.

What does that tell us about the world we live in?

im sick of hearing all these ignorant retards commenting about how shes guilty without having any facts! read the facts before forming an opinion. to condem someone as guilty when there is no DNA evidence endighting them proves a miscarriage of justice for Amanda and for Meridith. The Italian govt contaminated the scene and this poor girl who was murdered will never get the justice she deserves. But to falsely accuse and imprison someone who did not committ the crime is wrong. Guede is the real murderer, in his testimony he says they only kissed, yet they found his semen inside and outside her body. Guede killed her and lied, if Amanda and her bf were in on it with him how come there is no phone records putting them together. Italian govt was grasping at straws the endight this girl. Im glad she was exonerated and set free.

Of course he thinks the movie is b.s.! What dad is going to want to believe that their daugther did those things. Lifetime got the information somewhere...and it also sounds like he can't handle the truth about his "innocent" daughter. I still can't believe she got off...in more ways than one...but I feel she was there when her roomate was murdered, she might not have held the knife, but she sure was a part of it!

Don't care. When you use the media to advance your cause expect it to cut both ways. Just because she was released doesn't make her innocent either.

Thats funny. It was on here in the states on lifetime the other night. Italy is the last place you should worry about. I'd worry about it airing here in the US.

A movie based on some twisted sicko of a prosecutors demonic American theory who is under indictment for crimes of his own or on the sloppy made to fit evidence gathering in a rush to convict is horrible and I wont be watching if it dose make it on air.
They should just can it instead of parading out a movie based on dishonest corrupt Italian tabloid trash style of justice.
