There were four Pretenders movies planned, but because of bad ratings only two were produced. See more »
[Jarod and Miss Parker are on the phone - talking about the events that had transpired that day]
I hope you find your mother.
And what about... *us*?
You run - I chase. That choice was made for us a long time ago.
Maybe *that* is the "Parker Curse".
[wips away a tear]
Yeah. Hell of a life we live in, Jarod.

I waited a long time to see this installment of the Pretender saga, and it was well worth the wait. Jarod and Miss Parker give good performances, although Miss Parker gets a bit over the top when finding out each new revelation about her family's past. Jarod's continued attempts to break Miss Parker's mindset and show her that she too is being used by the Centre really expands the possibilities of where the show could go in the future. And Jarod being so close, yet missing his mother once again, along with his agony in a rare moment of weakness was probably the most angst-ridden moment of the movie. You really feel for his character at that point.
At the end, there are some interesting revelations. But I'll leave that to you for your viewing pleasure.
If there were any disappointments in this movie, it's that the Centre cast (aka Sydney, Broots, Raines, Lyle, etc.) got little screen time, the story focused on Jarod and Miss Parker. Yet, if you have watched the original series, you get the sense it worked better this way.
Any Pretender fan will enjoy the movie, and if you haven't watched the show, this should get your juices flowing.
