Did You Know?


Near the beginning and at some points in the movie, a logo is displayed that reads United States Court Ninth Circuit, and when it is first displayed the caption on screen reads "Offices of State Attorney, Ninth Judicial Circuit".

There is no "Ninth Circuit" in the US court system, and the case was not heard in the federal system- it was heard in Florida's Ninth Judicial Circuit. The US Ninth District Court of Appeal covers westerns states of California, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana as well as Guam. The logo should have read Office of the State Attorney Ninth Judicial Circuit. See more »

Lowe Makes the Film Worth Watching
20 January 2013 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Prosecuting Casey Anthony (2013)

*** (out of 4)

State lawyer Jeff Ashton (Rob Lowe) gets himself the Casey Anthony case just as he wanted so that he can turn her into the most hated woman in America but it ends up with her walking free. PROSECUTING CASEY ANTHONY is based on Ashton's book so it's to be expected that the film would show him in a positive light and Anthony in a negative one. For a Lifetime movie this here is certainly above average thanks in large part to Lowe's performance but there's still no question that there are many flaws. As someone who really followed this case, one of the first questions asked in the film is how Anthony walked away being found not guilty. In the film Ashton says he doesn't know and this is a problem with the film because the truth of the matter is that he never proved the case. For the most part the film spends way too much time going over the court case and all the big evidence or lack of evidence if you will. If someone has followed the case then none of this stuff is going to be of much interest because we know the evidence and have probably heard countless talking heads discuss it to death. The film would have been much better had it tried to give us something new including Ashton's state as these events started to unfold. The majority of the film just has him insulting the defense lawyer and this here really goes nowhere. However, as I said, the film remains watchable as a trashy made-for-TV flick but we've also got a very good performance by Lowe. I really thought he was believable as the lawyer and I liked the way the actor managed to perform with his eyes, meaning, we're able to see how he thinks and feels simply by looking into his eyes. The supporting performances are decent at best but the actors had a pretty hard job since most people are so used to their real counterparts. PROSECUTING CASEY ANTHONY certainly isn't a great movie by any stretch of the imagination but it's at least mildly entertaining.
