Jacques Clouseau is supposed to be a Police Inspector, yet he wears a uniform that was worn by the Gendarmerie (national police) until the early 1990s. Moreover, the two chevrons on his sleeves would make him a simple gendarme, a non-commissioned officer whose rank is far below Inspector. 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.

Steve Martin is embarrassing. The movie is downright awful. Martin's attempt at a French accent is simply annoying.
There are scenes that are visually entertaining, such as the wine juggle. John Cleese, as usual, is quite funny. Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau was funny in the original movie. However, Martin in the same role is simply foolish. I got up from my seat and left the other four in my party when I just couldn't stand it anymore and went to the plex next door to see part of a lame romantic comedy rather than risk hating myself for wasting my life watching another minute of The Pink Panther 2. I haven't walked out of a movie in probably 40 years! I met up with the group later, the were decidedly disappointed in the film-- and no long fans of Steve Martin.
