After having been rewarded for solving the mystery of the Pink Panther Diamond, inspector Jacques Clouseau has been assigned to minor tasks by his boss inspector Dreyfus so as not to have him in his way anymore.

One of the items stolen was the Pope's ring. However, the ring shown is actually the type worn by bishops and cardinals with a red stone (presumably a ruby) on it, but never by the Pope. The pope's fisherman ring is all gold (or gold plated as is Francis' ring) with the reigning pope's coat of arms on its top, which was used in the past as an envelope seal and stamp. That is the reason why the papal ring is destroyed when the reigning Pope dies or resigns (as did Benedict XVI) to prevent forgery of documents. See more »
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.

True to the first installment, The Pink Panther 2 begins with much promise by way of Inspector Clouseau's own brand of semi slapstick humor, loses its way somewhere around the middle, and then finds it again to round off a fairly watchable movie. As far as humor is concerned, one gets the feeling that there is an overlap of far too many elements the stereotypes, the action sequences, the warped logic, the karate kid family create sequences that are delightful but in certain instances a trifle too much. Good to see Aishwariya in a substantial role, not the least towards the end. The ending is definitely not guessable, though I am not sure whether it is entirely logical. Well, all is fair in Clouseau's end-justifies-the-means-and-hilarity world
