Did You Know?


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


During a discussion with Lyle in a parking garage, Miss Parker begins the scene wearing a skirt suit and red top. When Miss Parker walks to the door of the parking garage, she is wearing a leather trench coat and pants (the outfit is in another scene that takes place in the parking garage). The next shot of Miss Parker has her back in the skirt suit. See more »

Hey all you fans - what about the mistakes??!!
29 January 2001 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

I was thrilled that they did The Pretender movie and it was great! I can't believe nobody mentioned the two blatant errors though. (Hey, it's a fans job to do this kind of stuff!) The first one is in the opening accident scene with Ms. Parker - she has the diamond ring on that she found in the safe - much later in the show. The second one is Jarod talking about "Apache code talkers during the war". The code talkers were Navajo of course! I'm sure there are more errors (it's human I'm not faulting the show) but these two were really glaring! I still loved the movie and can't wait until they air the next one.
