Storyline

Charles Dreyfus escapes from the mental asylum and tries to kill Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau. He doesn't succeed at first, so he takes on another strategy, namely to build a Doomsday machine and demand that someone else kills Jacques Clouseau, or Dreyfus will use the machine to wipe out whole cities and even whole countries... With about 22 assassins from all over the globe on his tail, Clouseau decides to find Dreyfus alone and put him back in the mental asylum. Written by Lars J. Aas <larsa@colargol.edb.tih.no>

Goofs

In the first scene after the opening credits, Closeau is getting off the elevator of the building where he lives. He is carrying groceries, and rice spills from one of the bags, forming a big pile in the elevator. In the succeeding shots, as Closeau opens the door to his flat and accidentally rips his pants, the pile of rice disappears. In the last shot of the scene, when he finally enters his apartment, the pile of rice is visible once more. See more »

Clouseau and Cato perform
27 November 2001 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Of the Pink Panther series of films, this is the best with the possible exception of the original. Clouseau and Cato outdo themselves in the hide and seek game they play in each film. In this one however they have learnt from the mishaps in previous films and set the tone for a truly hilarious turning of events. The visit to the Oktoberfest takes a real comic view of the Cold War but Clouseau's inspection of the Fassbender house is even better. Throughout the film the storyline twists and turns and together with the background tunes combine terrifically -- see Sellers assault on Mondschein castle! The lunatic Dreyfuss is at his craziest from start to finish, how did he get his eye to twitch so much? The Inspector's love interest played by the very sexy Lesley Ann Down adds a further dimension to the plot with James Bond overtones. A film you can watch again and again.
