Eighth entry in the Pink Panther. It is nearly 30 years since Inspector Jacques Clouseau managed to get Maria Gambrelli off from a murder charge (events of "A Shot In The Dark".) Maria has gone on and have moved to a seaside town. Also Princess Yasmin of Lugash has come to the town for a holiday with her father. She is kidnapped and because of the strong ties between France and Lugash, Chief Inspector Dreyfus is called in to find her. He is hampered by the local police officer Jacques and is amazed when he finds that Jacques is Maria's son. He is terrified even though he and Maria are falling in love that Jacques is Clouseau's son and Jacques is showing Clouseau-ish behaviour. Both Jacques and Dreyfus set out to find the missing Princess... Written by

Commissioner Dreyfus' non-recognition of Maria Gambrelli during the encounter at the Gambrelli home. Dreyfus considered Gambrelli a prime murder suspect in A Shot in the Dark (1964), but she looks different (in fact, this is probably a joke on the fact she's played by a different actress).

Police Commisioner Charles Dreyfus:
I knew a man named Jacques. When he died, ten years ago, I thought "Thank God!" I never thought another one like him could exist... and then I met your son.

The closing credits start with the Pink Panther walking across a still of Jacques Gambrelli. Suddenly the animated Gambrelli cuts away the head of live-action Gambrelli and pops out of the hole, dropping the head on the Panther; the enraged Panther chases him into fading blackness. See more »
What do you say about a movie that proudly proclaims THREE (no more!) stars from the lone critic quoted from the box - and it's from a CANADIAN PAPER? One word - AWFUL! Roberto Benigni is a funny and talented actor, so he's not to blame for this mess - blame Edwards. Did Edwards actually used to be funny? I thought he used to be, but you'd never know from this movie. It's shocking to see Burt Kwouk looking so aged, but he and Lom, Cardinale, and Stark provide the movie's only pleasure, because they are kind of old friends by now.
With the abysmal grosses of this SOP (Son Of Pink), you'd think that the series is finally at an end. However, I read recently that United Artists is planning to revive (!) the series!!! They are going to replace Edwards, and bring a new lead in - but I don't trust Hollywood for remakes and resurrecting old franchises anymore.
