However, Clouseau's enemy, Dreyfus, rigs the Surete's computer to select, instead, the world's WORST detective, NYPD Sgt. Clifton Sleigh.

After Peter Sellers passed away, the producers of the "Pink Panther" franchise tried to carry on without their star. As evidenced in "Inspector Clouseau," having another actor play the bumbling French detective was not the answer. They tried to fill the void left by Sellers with old footage, in "Trail of the Pink Panther." Then they tried to introduce a new character, a counterpart to Clouseau. Thus was created "Curse of the Pink Panther." Ted Wass plays the newcomer, an amazingly inept New York cop named Clifton Sleigh, who is chosen to investigate Clouseau's disappearance. His act is loaded with slapstick, in attempt to copy Clouseau's style. However, it's not the same. Also appearing in "Curse" is a load of actors from all the previous "Pink Panther" movies, including Herbert Lom as Chief Inspector Dreyfus, Burt Kwouk as Kato, and David Niven as Sir Charles Lytton. Watch it if you must, but you'll be reminded of how Peter Sellers will be missed.
