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>

Mediocre at best.
22 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Considering that "Curse of the Pink Panther" is a relatively recent film, it looks surprisingly dated. No wonder, since it's filled with stale jokes and visual gags that have already been executed in previous "Pink Panther" entries. Harmless and good-natured but completely unimaginative and mostly unfunny, this comedy may help you kill two hours, but it may also irritate you because of its exploiting the images of many of the series' stars just to gain some "dignity" as a film. Moore's cameo appearance at the end is indeed funny, but personally I've always known than Moore has a great comic flair.
