The bumbling Inspector Clouseau travels to Rome to catch a notorious jewel thief known as "The Phantom" before he conducts his most daring heist yet: a princess' priceless diamond with one slight imperfection, known as "The Pink Panther".
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, NYPD Sergeant Clifton Sleigh.

The first "Pink Panther" titled movie with "Pink Panther" wording in its name not to star Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau. Alan Arkin had played the title character of the French detective in Inspector Clouseau (1968), but that movie was not titled with a "Pink Panther" phrase. See more »
The man who puts the bomb under Sleigh's taxi cab later drives with his partner after Sleigh when he leaves Sir Charles' house. While he does say, "don't get too close," why should they bother chasing a cab with a bomb under it at all? See more »
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.
