Movie Info

After catching her boyfriend cheating, Amanda (Bárbara Mori) decides her good looks are causing the problems in her life. She moves to a new town and creates an unattractive alter ego to ward off men and gain respect from her co-workers. When she meets Marcelo (Marcelo Mazzarello), a self-proclaimed womanizer, Amanda's anger inspires her to teach him a lesson using both her "ugly" persona and a provocative third personality named Helena -- but leading a triple life isn't easy.

Critic Reviews for Pretendiendo

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2)

  • A battle-of-the-sexes comedy that flies the flag of genre master Billy Wilder in its use of a self-created double life to allow for farce and feeling in equal measure.

  • Mori, whether buried in bad makeup or dropping jaws in a slinky number, turns out to be a fine actress who just happens to be a total knockout.

Audience Reviews for Pretendiendo

  • Jul 23, 2009
    A cute story, humorous enough to provide some good laughs, but ultimately a story that was, as others have said, a not very original treatment. A beautiful woman is betrayed and swears off men, disguising herself as a frump in order to prevent men from being attracted to her. Meeting the office Lothario at her new job presents her with an opportunity to teach him and by default, all men, a well deserved lesson. The lead actress, Barbara Mori who played three personae, was believably dowdy as Amanda, and ravishingly beautiful as her alter ego, the femme fatale, Helena. The scenery was beautiful and this viewer especially enjoyed some of the establishing shots, that highlighted the texture of the Chilean backdrop. Four stars if not for the disappointingly cliched ending. Because of that, however, only three and a half.
