John Ritter and John Cleese were also considered for the role. See more »

Once upon a time, Blake Edwards was funny...
7 September 1999 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

As I watched this movie, I asked myself if Blake Edwards could watch it and laugh out loud during the whole thing, or if he got as bored and tired with it as I did.

The classic Sellers Panther movies contain many laugh-out-loud sequences. For me, there is only one in this movie, a nice little scene that happens outside the Chicago airport. But by the way, if Sleigh is a NY cop, and he's going to France, why the heck does he have to go through Chicago???

Moore's cameo is nice. Almost makes you wonder if the idea was ever there to carry on the series with him.

If you have to see it to flesh out the whole series, go ahead, but don't expect much...
