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. Unfortunately, the famous diamond has once again been stolen as have many other artifacts in a series of burglaries around the world. His past success will enable inspector Clouseau to be part of the dream team comprised of the greatest detectives of the affected countries, where he will be able to display his numerous talents across the world.

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 »
[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.

And now, over here, perhaps the most cherished ancient artifact in the Western world: the Shroud of Turin.

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.

These nasty cash-ins really must stop. How Blake Edwards hasn't stalked everybody involved in these fiascos with a shotgun, I'll never know.
The first one was sickeningly unfunny and now we are faced with another trauma to deal with.
Peter Sellers was born to play Clouseau. No one else dare step into his shoes. That way lies disaster and ridicule.
How these abominations make it to the big screen is a mystery. When they are filming them, surely they must know that it isn't working out. Then again, it's hard to show restraint when even your underwear is made of $100 bills. Rich people making themselves richer, even at the cost of their own reputations. Very sad.
This thing makes even 'Curse Of The Pink Panther' look like a defining moment in cinema history. At least 'Curse' had Herbert Lom.
