Is there a reason why Lifetime decided to do such poor quality work and then air it on national television?! The writers and the director must have been cleary inebriated while following through with this horribly crafted storyline. This trial lasted 5 months and made headlines on just about every major news outlet! Yet, no research was done by the crap load of people, who I’m sure worked on this movie?!!! What a mess!

This movie shouldn’t of never been made this soon, absolutely disrespectful to the family and to his friends, The scenes in this movie were clearly not based on the facts that truly happened. Tania Raymonde didn’t even play the role of Jodi Arias Personality. Nor was the character portraying Travis Alexander’s personality as well. No thought was made into this movie, but a waste of 2 hrs!

This movie was THEE most stupid movie ever!!! The actual events were completely off and the sequence of events worse!!! The day she killed him in the movie was the day she stopped to say goodbye before moving back to Cali. WRONG AGAIN! We all know she killed him 3 months after she moved back to cali. The way they met was completely twisted,the note on the car was actually an email, she didn’t decorate his whole house and make his.bedroom girly…so on..it was a total.waste of my 2 hrs!!

I watched the trial from beginning to end and this movie sucked. The actress looked nothing or acted anything like Jodi…bad choice. Too much went on in this movie for all this to be portrayed in a 2 hour movie. Should have made it into a mini-series

Tania Raymonde was spectacular as Jodi. In fact, Tania could show Arias what being sexy is really all about. The “real” Jodi just performed acts traditionally done by hookers.

Jen Love Hewitt would had been the PERFECT choice for this role. She would have looked the part blonde or brunette, and she’s a great actress. Lifetime f*cked up on this one. BIG TIME!

I didn’t follow the trial, but I liked the movie.
It gave me a bit of insight to the story.
After the movie they had a real life interview story with the real JA.
I have yet to watch that but it should also be interesting.

In the real life case Jodi did not go into the
Men’s room to meet travis. Do not understand why
This was added to the movie. Made no sense!
Also, the girl playing Jodi did not resemble her
Physically at all which really detracted from
The story. This actress did not portray Jodi’s
Personality either. A better selection for Jodi
Should have been casted.
The real Jodi’s mix of sweetness & cunningness
Was not successfully demonstrated by the
Actress.

Based on a true story? She did not introduce herself to Travis. They did not hook up that way. He sodomized her on her baptism day. She did not send him pics of another guy. He called her a whore after he borrowed 700 dollars from her. She did not take pics of him asleep on the couch with another girl. She did not put non existent pics in a collage on his mirror. This young woman’s life is hanging in the balance and you put this crap on TV. Travis mentally abused her. He sent her a very harsh text, calling her a sociopath. He invited her over for a quickie. She slept with him. The killing never occured to her until her life was in danger.

Roger, I thought the same thoughts on these scenes that did not come up in the trial, so you know the writers and producers made them up and that was very disappointing to me. This is real serious stuff and very current with the trial just ending a month ago, you would think they would stay very close to the script that just played out in court. Yes, I know she did some really crazy things and killed her boyfriend, but she is on trial and will get life or death………and Lifetime really took alot of license to make many things up that I never heard in the trial………..i.e….all the examples that you just said. I was thinking the same thing.

Oh, come on! Stop believing all Jodi’s lies as the truth. Her version is a crock.

you are defending a sick murderer. there is absolutely no excuse for her behavior and how dare you defend her. stabbing someone 29 times slicing someones throat and then shooting him in the face is murder. self defense would have been stabbing him once and getting the hell out of there.
she is a cold blooded killer.
sickening how you think she was actually in danger, wow.

The bottom line is that jodi killed another human. justification for murder is ridiculous.
