Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes where he unwittingly separates a young boy from his father and must help the two come back together. On the way he discovers France, bicycling, and true love, among other things.
When the coach of the France soccer team is killed by a poisoned dart in the stadium in the end of a game, and his expensive and huge ring with the diamond Pink Panther disappears, the ambitious Chief Insp. Dreyfus assigns the worst police inspector Jacques Clouseau to the case. His intention is to give a diversion to the press, while he uses his best men to chase the killer and thief. He assigns Gendarme Gilbert Ponton to work with Clouseau and inform each step of the investigation. When Clouseau is nominated with honor to the highest prize in France, Dreyfus decides to humiliate Clouseau and take him out of the case. However Clouseau has already solved the mystery. Written by

In the press conference scene, the cameras that are supposed to be "news" cameras actually filmed parts of the scene. See more »
When the trainer comes around the corner after Clouseau hears the "heel" sound being made by the trainer's shoes there is a mismatch. The trainer's shoes were regular athletic sneakers, not cleats which could have made that noise. See more »
Chief Inspector Dreyfus:
Ah, Clouseau. Yes, well, the first time I ever heard that name, uh, Clouseau was just a little, um... nobody, a police officer in some little village far outside of Paris.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus:
He was the village idiot as far as I could tell.

The opening credits feature the Pink Panther being pursued by, and in turn harassing, an animated Inspector Clouseau (who now resembles Steve Martin). The credits are directed by Bob Kurtz, who had worked on some of the "Pink Panther" shorts. See more »
One four letter word is all that is needed to sum this piece of tripe up, and it sure as hell isn't good, okay or fair. I hated it, it is insult not only to the original but also to Martin who seems to have taken to doing these god-awful remakes that in fact only serve to butcher the memory and heritage of the original film.
Sellars turned a star performance in the Original and while it was extremely silly, it was not childish.
I would suggest a better use of your time would be to drill a hole through your hand. I therefore poo poo this film utterly and without remorse.
