Jackie Chan was considered for the part of Clouseau's Chinese assistant, Cato Fong. But the filmmakers decided they didn't want to use a politically incorrect character, and replaced Cato with the Frenchman Ponton. See more »
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 opening credits reflect the functions of the credited persons, for instance, Pink Panther as the orchestra director (at the music credits), standing before a photo camera (director of photography), etc. See more »
Having seen the Pink Panther series since its inception. The characters are known entities with built-in personalities and comedic value.
Why then is the corpse of Peter Sellers spinning like the Bush Press corp.
This is a turkey that must be killed, to save the memory and comedic value of the prequels.
Adding Beyonce? Take the bitch behind the barn and leave her there. We saw enough of her empty headedness in Austin Powers. (leaving that series in stinkville).
The best part of the film and the most telling is Steve Martin's (Clouseau) ignorance of the sound proof booth, giving him the chance to fart in private. Too bad Steve, not even a sound proof booth can keep the audience from smelling and hearing this stinker.
