The made-for-TV version of Drew Peterson's life story, starring Rob Lowe, premiered this weekend, and Peterson reportedly found it "hysterical."

The movie focuses on Peterson's life leading up to his 2009 arrest on charges that he murdered his third wife. Meanwhile, the family members of Peterson's missing fourth wife told the Tribune the film was "far-fetched and off the mark."

Despite, or perhaps because of the inaccuracies presented in the move, "Drew Peterson: Untouchable," lawyers for the real-life Drew Peterson may ask for a change of venue.

Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky told the paper the film could affect the trial's location, and jury selection. He confirmed that Peterson thought the movie "was hysterical."

"He chuckled at all of the inaccuracies and things that never happened," Brodsky told the paper.

Peterson is awaiting trial in the death of Kathleen Savio. He's also suspected in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, but hasn't been charged. Peterson has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
