Now, tell me why you want me to lay off Clouseau?
'Cause I prefer things the way they are. Clouseau created a lot of problems. A smart lady like you could even find out he's still alive.
Or dead. I might even find out that someone killed him.
You've got a beautiful face. Why do you want to stick it in where it doesn't belong?
Because it's my job.
What good's your job, if you've gotta do your TV show from a hospital bed?

Last real panther-film and a fine tribute to Sellers.
Some might call this movie a felonious grave robbery but I think this is a fine tribute to a late comedian master. I don't think it was such a bad idea to take some unused scenes and older highlights and put together a completely new film after decease of masterful Peter Sellers.
Even though sequences with Jacques Clouseau don't fit the plot perfectly, it works. There are couple of brilliantly hilarious never-seen-before scenes with Sellers in here and to me that's a reason enough to make this film, I'm sure. I also have to admit Richard Mulligan is superb in the role of Clouseau's father. Bit strange sequel but cool stuff and great fun.
