Trivia

There were four Pretenders movies planned, but because of bad ratings only two were produced. See more »

Goofs

When Ms. Parker finds her mother's ring in the safe, she puts it on her right ring finger. Later, when she is shown with her hands on the fallen beam the ring is on her left ring finger and she has a ring on her right fore finger. This is either a continuity error, or the film frame has been reversed. See more »

Quotes

Miss Parker: [Sneaking up on Lyle and saying with no enthusiasm what so ever] Boo!
Mr. Lyle: [Screams] Gaaah! You almost scared the...
Miss Parker: It's called crap, Lyle. And as full of it as you are, I'm sure you have some to spare.

The Pretender's back from the dead again
10 March 2001 | by RaajmdTMP2001See all my reviews

There are television shows among us

Shows in which the main character can become anyone he wants to be

In 1996, a network known as NBC isolated a young show named THE PRETENDER and exploited its genius for their ratings

Then one day, THE PRETENDER ran away...

SLM and CVS have outdone themselves again. The movie didn't answer many questions but I'm am in no way complaining. When the next movie airs we will get some answers. From what I've heard it will be better than this one. Once a pretender fan, always a pretender fan. Watch the show every weeknight on TNT.
