So Aruba doesn't think the movie had any impact.

You have got to read this article in the Barbado Free Press. It is too long, especially with all the links to bring over.  There is someone in the comment section that even mentions the Freebirds.

Just a small quote from the article.


Renewed Interest Sparked By “The Natalee Holloway Story” Movie

A new made for television movie about the disappearance of Natalie Holloway was broadcast on Sunday night. The result — a “perfect storm” on the Internet as renewed interest in the case immediately catapulted the term “Natalie Holloway” to the top of the search engine charts. Our two stories about the case received thousands of hits overnight and the visits will no doubt continue to increase as the day progresses.

Boy - isn't that the truth!!!

A little Birdie told me that the Freebird blog has been hammered with hits - and that was before our link got posted at other boards like this Barbados one.

This movie has definitely caused a very large surge of interest in this tragedy.

Perhaps someone should send this to the Amigoe. 

This depicts the ACTUAL interest in this movie - not what Amigoe is reporting.

Better yet - maybe someone should send it to Jossy.  Perhaps he will print it in Diario - if for nothing else, to show how deceitful Amigoe is to its readers.

Michelle's review of the movie

http://arubanboycott.blogspot.com/2009/04/did-natalee-holloway-movie-help-boycott.html

DID THE NATALEE HOLLOWAY MOVIE HELP THE BOYCOTT?




My Rating: 






By Michelle


Overall, I think that the Natalee Holloway movie was well done. Tracy Pollan played a very good Beth Holloway in her dire moments of sadness; however, Pollan could have played up the raging anger Beth suffered by the blatant police cover up and the government's plan to protect Joran and the Van der Sloot family.


I enjoyed the beginning sequence during the infamous secret recorded car conversation between Joran and Patrick van der Eem. It was a great use of foreshadowing of what was to unfold. 

Omissions?

After Beth and Jug landed in Aruba and found Joran's house and his father, what happened to the running back and forth between casinos in order to buy Joran time to get back to his house? 


Why wasn't Joran nervous, disheveled and sweaty when he pulled up to the house during the initial confrontation like Beth described in her book? 

Why did he not act defensive while pounding his chest screaming, "What do you want me to do about it?!"   

And what about Paulus Van der Sloot? 

No mention of his arrest, his "pool side chat" with the boys telling them "no body, no case", his "sweaty" meeting with Beth during the first week, his lawsuits against the police for arresting him, his "best friend" in the police department, and the obvious lies used to cover up where Joran was that night and the next morning.


The actor who played Joran didn't come through as evil as Joran really is.  All the features of his psychological demeanor were left out of Joran's character.  Instead the actor portrayed Joran as this charming spoiled brat like someone out of "Gossip Girl", who has a habit for preying and drugging girls.  But oops..."after like 20 times" of doing this (Joran's exact admission on TV), "something bad happened", and he just got scared and lied. 

Joran's character did not display the diabolical, sociopathic, and pathological liar that he is in real life.  The only time he appeared cold and sinister were in the secretly recorded car scenes.


I was also disappointed in the complete absence of the "catch and release" of the other characters such as Steve Croes, Geoffrey Van Comvoirt, Guido Wever, and Lorenzo Zedan-Arambatzis.  These omitted facts add to the pain that Beth and Dave had to endure while trying to find the truth of what happened to Natalee and that could have helped the strength of the film.

However, I do think the movie's perception of how Beth was treated by an angry Aruban mob with signs saying "Get Out", while screaming "Go Home!" was great. This, coupled with the police's lack of investigation has done and will continue to do harm to Aruba's already bad reputation and tourism crisis.

With that said, I think this movie did everything possible to shed light on this case while destroying Aruba at the same time.

Intentional or not?  We'll never know!  But who's complaining?

End Note:

One thing that I found somewhat creepy was the first time that the Mountain Brook kids went to Carlos-n-Charlies, a "man" was bumping into the girls and Natalee's stepbrother stepped in to push him away.  In real life it is purported to have been Geoffrey van Comvoirt.


However, if you have a copy of the movie, watch this "man" because he looks exactly like Paulus Van der Sloot.

Good Morning.
One thing on the movie I was surprised about was the showing of Nancy Grace segments on CNN and not Greta.  Greta was more of a champion for Beth and Natalee than NG was.  I just thought it was odd that very little was said of Greta and Fox News.

Janet, I have high BP and thyroid problems.  Am on medication for BP but have to go through the thryroid iodine test in 2 weeks before they will know about that medication so it is hard to tell if it is bp or thryroid causing my problems.  My guess is one of the medications I am on now is causing the dizziness and upset stomach.  Thanks for asking though.  I am tough and will stay on the doctor to get it all corrected.

Hundreds sound off about new Natalee Holloway movie

By Jen Hale
Reporter and weekend anchor
Published: April 20, 2009

Lifetime Movie Network’s new film “Natalee Holloway” takes viewers back to Natalee’s final days in Mountain Brook leading up to her senior trip to Aruba - then into what are now believed to be her final hours. 

The movie stars Michael J. Fox’s real life wife Tracy Pollan as Beth Holloway Twitty…a mother desperately searching for her daughter, a process that is still ongoing.

Amy Gumenick portrays Natalee Holloway.

The movie, which originally aired Sunday night, is based on Beth Holloway Twitty’s book, Loving Natalee: A Mother’s Testament of Hope and Faith.
Hundreds of viewers have now posted comments on the Lifetime chat boards, sounding off about the movie…everything from support for Natalee’s family and frustration at how the Aruban government handled the case - to anger about the way the Aruban people and the island have been portrayed.

Birmingham attorney Charlie Ratcliff was born in Aruba but now lives here.

He says Natalee’s disappearance is still a difficult topic for folks in Aruba.

“To say it’s been devastating to the island is an understatement. Devastating emotionally. A lot of people are heart broken and horrified one of our guests was missing,“ says Ratcliff.

At the end of the movie, the real Beth Holloway Twitty warns parents about how to prepare a safety plan for a child’s trip abroad - lessons she learned fast the hard way.

Lifetime does plan to post the movie, so folks who missed it can watch it online.

Poor schlep!  He hasn't lived there since he was a kid, but refers to Natalee as "one of our guests"

It could be.  Have you researched on the internet all the drugs you are on in regards to possible side effects?  Maybe you could identify the one that is causing all the problems.

Once the medication that is causing the problems is adjusted accordingly or changed ...

Thank you for sharing.

Maybe permission could not be obtained from FOX ....

I was thinking the same thing, Janet.  In the film, I think it was Beth's character made a comment about CNN being first with any news reports about the case.  This would lead me to believe some contractual agreement was made with CNN and not the other news networks.....besides ABC, that is, since the Joran interview was also part of the film.
