LOVEDDDDDD IT!
10 December 2001 | by ChRisNothSG1See all my reviews

What can I say, but LOOOVVVEED IT! This movie was sooooooo FANTASTIC! It surpases the other movie by far. More interesting plots and more chemistry! WAHOOOOO! IT WAS FANTASTIC! oooh, I already said that.

ANyway, as usual, Mrs Parker is chasing Jarod again, but on this island. I've been a fan of this show since it first started and was later cancled on television. All the actors/actresses on the show have the best chemistry that I've seen since "The X-Files"!!! The previews got me soooooo excited about seeing this one too! We all know that Mrs Parker and Jarod have the most chemistry. I bet she enjoys chasing him as much as he enjoys being chased. Mr Raines, Mr Lyle, and Mr Parker were their usual weird and creepy selves, but they're just as awesome and fantastic. Broots, Sydney, and Angelo were also just as great as ever. THIS IS THE BEST ENSEMBLE CAST TO DATE! (since the xfiles of course).

It was MR LYLE that surprised me the most. As for that "kiss", you just have to see this movie for yourself to find out. Michael T Weiss, Andrea Parker, and the others are the best of the best! MORE MOVIES TO COME! PLEASE! CONTINUE ON WITH "THE PRETENDER"!!! Who will know if this show and movies of the show will *ever* end. The more the merrier.

I ALWAYS looked forward to Mrs Parker chasing Jarod. There is also humor, horror, and all the other elements that make this movie THE MOVIE TO WATCH! YOU WILL LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DID!
