Trivia

The voiceover in the film's trailer refers to Jacques Clouseau erroneously as "Andre Clouseau" several times. See more »

Goofs

After Claude Russo, disguised as Clouseau, crashes Cato's car into a tree, a news announcer states that Clouseau was dead before his car hit a telephone pole. This is likely due to the people who were shooting at the car before it crashed. The autopsy likely found a gunshot wound to be the cause of death. See more »

Revenge Of The Pink Panther Is Short On Laughs But...
4 November 1999 | by (Brea, Ca. USA) – See all my reviews

Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau has given us countless laughs. Revenge of the Pink Panther is not as funny as previous Pink Panther films, but still, there is enough here to recommend it. Herbert Lom as Inspector Dryfuss is not present in enough of the scenes. Diane Cannon sparks things up with her presense. If you love Peter Sellers portrayal of Inspector Clouseau, you will enjoy many parts of this film. Don't expect it, however, to come up to previous offerings in the Pink Panther series.
