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.

Not as good as the first Steve Martin remake, but still amusing and at times outright funny. Most of the humor consists of sight gags and slapstick, but there are some quite funny scenes such as when Inspector Clouseau interrogates the Pope with hilarious results or Inspector's lessons on proper etiquette from Mrs. Berenger played by Lily Tomlin who is wonderful in this movie. Other parts of the movie fall flat. The rest of the cast is also funny. John Cleese playing a Frenchman was excellent. This story is innocuous enough to have been rated G. Good movie, entertaining, light fare. One problem with the movie is that Jean Reno seemed to be miscast. In the first movie he plays a serious role but here he plays a buffoon and sidekick to the hapless Clouseau. It did not work. A strong actor like Jean Reno should have strong roles.
