Despite a rather extensive publicity campaign, a predominantly French setting, its hero being a French detective and the presence of one of France's most popular actors (Jean Reno) in the cast, the film was a huge commercial failure in France, lasting merely one week in most major multiplexes.

The opening titles of the film double as an animated short featuring the famous animated counterparts of Inspector Clouseau and the Pink Panther. Similarly the film ends with the animated Pink Panther walking across the screen before the end titles start. Both of these appearances are consistent with the previous films in the franchise.

Many critics dislike this movie. Reading their comments I still do not understand why. The movie has many funny moments. The audience I watched this movie with seemed to like it.
I wonder what people expect from a silly movie about a bumbling policeman getting into embarrassing situations. The most usual comment from critics is that Peter Sellers was a much better Clouseau. I am a big fan of the original movies. What Peter Sellers had that Steve Martin is lacking is the arrogance. I am talking about the arrogance Peter Sellers' Clouseau displayed when had just made a fool of himself. Nevertheless, I think Steve Martin made a good Clouseau. I would definitely recommend this movie. Relax and enjoy.
