The Pink Panther is a heroic, moral cartoon cat with pink fur and the manners of an English aristocrat. He only becomes flustered or angry at obtuse or offensive humans who try to disrupt ... See full summary »
Before thousands of enthusiastic spectators at the World Cup semi-finals between France and China, an elusive professional assassin murders the famous French coach, and manages, somehow, to steal from his hand his prized possession--the priceless Pink Panther diamond ring. Now, of all the Parisian Police Force's detectives, the deceitful Chief Inspector, Dreyfus, decides to appoint the maladroit investigator, Jacques Clouseau, to this difficult and mysterious case, knowing that the eccentric gendarme is way out of his depth. Does Dreyfus have a hidden agenda? Can France's clueless and most bumbling officer of the law piece together the scarce leads to pull off a surprising success?Written by

When Dreyfus is holding the ice to his eye, the angle changes to show Clouseau entering. In this shot Dreyfus clearly removes the ice, but it the next shot he is still holding it to his eye. See more »
Chief Inspector Dreyfus:
Ah, Clouseau. Yes, well, the first time I ever heard that name, uh, Clouseau was just a little, um... nobody, a police officer in some little village far outside of Paris.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus:
He was the village idiot as far as I could tell.

The movie was just fun. I'm a huge fan of slapstick and goofy humor. Well this is a movie just full of it. I took my nine year old daughter with me, who like a lot of the children I know really like Steve Martin. Well we both laughed a lot and sometimes out loud, especially me. It was opening night and the theater was almost full. There were lots of people laughing during this movie. It was a crowd of all ages and at the end there was applause. I'm not gonna give some long drawn out analysis of the movie and compare it to the original series or any other movies for that matter. I will just say that I was very skeptical about a new Pink Panther movie and just assumed this would be a stupid bomb. Well I must say it was stupid funny and like a bomb it was explosively funny. I'm glad I saw a clip on the Letterman show that sparked my interest. Steve Martin and Kevin Kline were downright funny.
As a father it's always fun to take your kids to a movie where you can both laugh out loud and enjoy without having to worry about foul language, nudity or violence. If you want to go see a serious movie full of the hardships of life then go see one of the Oscar nominated pictures. If you just want to go and have some simple fun with one of your kids, your spouse or a friend, then allow yourself the time to see why Steve Martin is still one of America's best funny men.
