Alan Arkin does a wonderful job., 4 March 2002
Author: Joshua from Costa Mesa, CA

It would be understandable to not like this film simply because of comparisons to the Pink Panther movies. But I stayed home one day and it came on the Mystery channel and I laughed pretty hard. Alan Arkin did a great job playing the bumbling French Detective. From his accent to his clueless pride he plays him well. There is no Kato in this film, but that's good because it would make too close comparisons to Peter Sellers' Inspector. Lot's of funny laughs and lines, if you get a chance, take a look at this one.
