Storyline

Inspector Clouseau disappears, and the Surete wants the world's second best detective to look for him. However, Clouseau's enemy, Dreyfus, rigs the Surete's computer to select, instead, the world's WORST detective, NYPD Sgt. Clifton Sleigh. Sleigh obtusely bungles his way past assassins and corrupt officials as though he were Clouseau's American cousin. Written by <rth@ece.arizona.edu>

Trivia

The odd name featured during the closing credits, "Turk Thrust II", is a pseudonym for Roger Moore. The name was a nod to Moore's friend Bryan Forbes who often used the name "Turk Thrust" when playing cameos in his own movies. Forbes was actually billed as "Turk Thrust" in the earlier "Pink Panther" picture A Shot in the Dark (1964) where he played a a camp attendant. See more »

Watchable but only thanks to Moore's cameo.
20 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is definitely the worst Pink Panther film of all, but it's worth seeing (read-wait until the end of the film) because of a fantastic cameo of (great in this role) Roger Moore who shows that he fits very well in the part of Clouseau. I think Peter Sellers would be satisfied with Moore's outing. P.S. Note that it's the last David Niven film.
