The crucial "zoomed section" of the picture taken at the airport is clearly from a different picture than the one we are initially shown, as evidenced e.g. by the positioning of the characters in the background. See more »
The MGM logo is slammed open (with Leo the Lion in mid-roar) by the animated Inspector Clouseau, who takes a look around and then walks off. The Pink Panther appears and closes the logo, leaving Leo unconscious. See more »
Hollywood decision-makers have either no brains or no b#%*s -- or both. The Stink Panther is yet another example of a remake gone south. It takes such gall to defile a classic like The Pink Panther.
Who does Steve Martin think he is? Why didn't they just dig up Peter Sellers' corpse and urinate on it? It would have been funnier and Peter Sellers would have thought it more dignified.
I'm told 3000 scripts come to Hollywood every month. It is not conceivable so many are so horrible that The Stink Panther must prevail. What a waste of money. Steve Martin should give his salary back. I wish I could get back the money I paid for the tickets.
Hey, Hollywood Bigwigs, get your heads out of your a%&*s and show some b#%*s. Showcase some new talent and get out of this horrid trend of insulting the intelligence of the American people with s*^%#y remakes.
One can only hope The Return of the Stink Panther 2 is not on some storyboard, surrounded by idiots who have never ventured east of the San Diego Freeway.
