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>

Goofs

Around 00:34:45, despite of acting in a french's museum, there is some big grammatical and spelling mistakes on the wall : it's written "Un superb detective que les criminels se m'efient". It should be "Un superbe détective dont les criminels se méfient" See more »

Quotes

Prof. Auguste Balls: [In reference to Cunny] He can whip you up a very nice suit with two pairs of pants while you wait; what do you say?
Sergeant Clifton Sleigh: Uh... no, you see I'm investigating...
Prof. Auguste Balls: Of course you're investigating! You're a policeman. I knew that the moment you walked into my emporium: Your courage, your alertness, the way your eyes take in everything. I immediately said to myself "Balls, this is a policeman's policeman."

A pleasant surprise
15 May 2001 | by Dock-OckSee all my reviews

Ignore the negative press when viewing this. O.K., the movie cant hit the heights of either A shot in the dark or The Pink Panther Strikes Again, but it is a nice little film in it's own right. Firstly Ted Wass is good in the role of Clifton Sleigh, perhaps it is the fact that the character is too bumbling in the wrong direction that it doesn't work out. The stars of the show are again Herbert Lom and Joanna Lumley, and the sexy Leslie Ash in a Bond girl like role. The man who steals the show is surprisingly Roger Moore as the newly Plastic surgery clad Clouseau who is made up to look like, rather appropriately, Roger Moore. An hilarious twist which is something Clouseau would have gone in for. It is a pity Moore wasn't given the role of Clouseau out right because he is effective in the part and quite funny. An enjoyable little film.
