Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
British Librarian: [inside the British Library] I now bring to your attention one of the most stunning treasures inside the British Library's entire collection: the Magna Carta.
[the tourists murmur at the stolen Magna Carta display, with The Tornado's calling card left at the scene]
Turin Guide: [inside the Turin Chapel] And now, over here, perhaps the most cherished ancient artifact in the Western world: the Shroud of Turin.

Crazy Credits

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.

Steve Martin Is Losing It
6 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sorry, but Steve Martin as Inspector Clouseau just does not make it. There is only one Clouseau, and that's Peter Sellers. I can't understand why Martin has done this, except his ego has gotten so big he thinks he's funny enough to pull it off. Well I have news for Steve: Forget it! Both of these Pink Panther remakes are totally lame travesties and nothing more than cheap imitation cash-grabs. Steve Martin, go back to doing what you're good at, being Steve Martin, not a second-rate, amateur, really bad imitation of Peter Sellers. As for John Cleese, he must be hard up for cash. That's the only reason I can see him doing this. Obviously the Hollywood marketing people have aimed this piece of junk at the juvenile market which is too young to know about Peter Sellers.
