Charles Dreyfus encounters Jacques Gambrelli, who reminds him painfully of Inspector Clouseau, the man who drove him insane. With good reason: Gambrelli is Clouseau's son.

Storyline

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 Lee Horton <Leeh@tcp.co.uk>

Trivia

Actor-comedians Kevin Kline, Rowan Atkinson, Gérard Depardieu and Tim Curry were all considered for the role of Jacques Gambrelli, the son of Inspector Clouseau. In the end, the part went to Roberto Benigni. Atkinson had been previously considered for the role of Det. Clifton Sleigh in Curse of the Pink Panther (1983) but had been rejected by the studio because Atkinson was unknown outside of the UK (ironically, Benigni was unknown outside of Italy) whilst Kline would go on to appear as Dreyfus in The Pink Panther (2006) remake.

Goofs

When Dreyfuss discovers he is standing in shallow water, his clothes are wet and become partially see-through. Because of this, it's obvious he is wearing a wetsuit under his clothes. It's the same kind of scuba suit used earlier in the film. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Completely Underrated
29 February 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

The visual wit and warm wrap-up that Blake Edwards' brings to one of the finest comedic series of film history (and, apart from the couple produced in the eighties, they were consistently original and inventive - and changed with each one) is sadly misunderstood and no longer appreciated by our audiences. The manner in which Edwards' uses the entire screen instead of just cutting for quick effects requires a little more patience, and can result in quite a payoff - witness the side-splitting scene with Dreyfus and colleague in hospital beds (but, of course, you need a widescreen version to see it). This movie made me laugh, and laugh, and laugh, but, as I said before, if Edwards' "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" (probably the best in the series) were released today, it wouldn't have gotten the time of day either. It's too bad, because this film, which displays a tenderness to these characters and Edwards' creation as a whole, was never allowed a chance to really be seen without generally jaded eyes.
