Storyline

Inspector Clouseau disappears, and the Surete wants the world's second best detective to look for him. However, Clouseau's enemy, Dreyfus, rigs the Surete's computer to select, instead, the world's worst detective, N.Y.P.D. Sergeant Clifton Sleigh. Sleigh obtusely bungles his way past assassins and corrupt officials as though he were Clouseau's American cousin. Written by <rth@ece.arizona.edu>

It has its moments.

The good news that "The Curse of the Pink Panther" does have a few funny scenes. The bad news is that there aren't too many of them. This movie would have been better if it was a lot shorter. Pushing two hours is way too long for a movie like this. There are quite a few scenes that went on too long. The karate fight in the alley is the first scene that jumps into my mind. A major plus in "The Curse of the Pink Panther" is the appearance of Roger Moore. There aren't many stars who, at the height of their fame, would have the guts to have fun on screen like Moore does in this movie. He had a lot of guts for trying and he's actually very funny.
