Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Steve Martin had such respect for Peter Sellers that when he was asked to take over the role of Clouseau, he put off the decision to accept it until after he had already worked out the character's accent and run several ideas for scenes past director Shawn Levy. See more »

The French national police are under the control of the ministry of interior, not the ministry of justice. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.
[Dreyfus chuckles]

even with an open mind, I came away deeply disappointed
19 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a preview 2 weeks before and was extremely excited to see this movie. I had seen Sellers in the Return and Revenge movies as a youngster and thought Steve Martin could easily pull this roll off! I am a hugemongous fan of his old stuff (Jerk, ...Plaid, All of Me, Man with two.... etc.)!

Neither Steve Martin nor Kevin Kline were able to consistently portray his character from start to finish. Too difficult an accent to master? Maybe the story demanded a deep and developed character?? Yeah right! The movie was only 93 minutes long, what were their problems??

I demanded my money back after the show. I had been so excited before the show, especially since I had endured a heavily loaded week at work and school. I left the theater feeling seriously ripped off and sick, sick of attempting to giggle at the same old joke of a man getting kicked in the family jewels.

For many minutes following, I was afraid the movie was a big joke on us, as if these actors were attempting to get away with putting in as little as possible in return for our ticket monies.

Get your money back or save your money for renting this flop from video store. No reason to see it on the big screen for sure. No reason to ruin the spirit of the Pink Panther either (by renting).
