Did You Know?

Trivia:
In this film, Peter Sellers plays Clouseau with an exaggerated French accent, including running gags involving his mispronunciation of words. In his previous performances, he used a straightforward accent. Clouseau is also portrayed as considerably more inept than he was in his previous appearances.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Clouseau poses as a telephone repairman and gets stuck under Sir Charles Litton's desk, most of the items on the desktop fall to the floor. But when the film cuts to the scene in which Clouseau turns the desk upside down, the items that were on the desktop are now on the floor and Sir Charles's desktop is clear.See more »
Quotes:
Inspector Jacques Clouseau:[in Dreyfus' office, after Clouseau's apartment has been bombed] I tell you, infamous powers are at work! The instant you assign me to a case, the Underworld hears about it and I am set upon! It is amazing that I am still alive!
Dreyfus:[forcing himself not to giggle] "Amazing" is the polite term.
Inspector Jacques Clouseau:Do I detect something in your voice that says I am in disfavor with you?
Dreyfus:YES! I wish you were DEAD!
Inspector Jacques Clouseau:Well, of course, you are entitled to your opinion.

Inspector Clouseau is funnier than ever in this hilarious comedy!, 31 October 1998
Author: Steve Richmond from Brea, Ca. USA

Return of the Pink Panther is an outstanding comedy starring Peter Sellers as the lovable and totally incompetent Inspect Clouseau. I remember seeing this film for the first time just after its release and laughed so hard that my wife refused to sit next to me in the theatre. There are a few slow spots, mainly those without Sellers' charm on screen but there are more than enough belly laughs in this movie to make up for that. Don't miss it.
