Editorial Reviews

The eighth and last entry in Blake Edwards's long-running series SON OF THE PINK PANTHER stars Roberto Benigni (LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL) as the illegitimate son of the benighted Inspector Clouseau. Princess Yasmin a member of the royal family of Lugash is kidnapped while on vacation in France by terrorist Hans (Robert Davi) who demands a $100 million ransom and Chief of Police Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) is called in to handle the case. Hans makes the mistake of being involved in a crash with Jacques Gambrelli the bumbling illegitimate son of Clouseau who manages to catch sight of the princess. Gambrelli also crashes into Dreyfus who manifests his familiar Tourette's symptoms after meeting the son of the man who so often pushed him to the brink of insanity. After confirming his identity the police chief sends Gambrelli on what he hopes will be a suicidal mission to find the princess in Lugash. Begnini is charming as the heir to the legacy of ineptitude.System Requirements:Running Time: 93 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY Rating: PG UPC: 027616930217 Manufacturer No: 1009053

3.0 out of 5 stars Son of the Pink Panther March 3, 2006
Format:DVD
Funny in parts, but not up to the level of when Peter Sellers was playing Clouseau. Hebert Lom and Bert Kwok are the only actors that hold the movie together. The usual clumsiness was a

bit overdone.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Duller Pink June 14, 2006
Format:DVD
After the success, or rather lack thereof, of "Curse of the Pink Panther", Blake Edwards realized he had to accept that Peter Sellers was no more and that he still needed to bring the name Clouseau back into the franchise, even if it meant giving Sellers' classic character an illegitimate son.

Enter future Oscar winner Roberto Benigni, who would actually receive the exact opposite of an Oscar for this role. He's clean-shaven, part Italian Jacques Gumbrelli Clouseau Jr., not mustached Jacques Clouseau, making this a new character and leaving Benigni to the type of humor that works for him.

Unfortunately, the humor doesn't work for the entire movie. The movie moves almost completely away from the overdone routines of the rest of the series, but there are only a few laugh out loud scenes, with some small chuckles in between. The biggest problem with the film, though, would have to be the plot. Pink Panther plots have been mangled messes before, but never to this extent. There's so much political intrigue and scandal involved that it's hard to figure out what anyone's motivation in, even during the climax.

Herbert Lom is back for his final performance as Chief Inspector Dreyfus, now more sane and subdued. Burt Kwouk is also back reprising his reoccurring role as Kato, the late Clouseau's humble servant. Disguise master Professor Balls, played in the most recent films by Harvey Korman, is now played by Graham Stark, a friend of Sellers who appeared in different roles in many of the films. These performances almost make the movie feel like a valid part of the series.

Henry Mancini's score, as in all of the films, is the highlight, and Bobby McFerrin's performance of the theme music is perfect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, don't buy it..... February 20, 2006
Format:DVD
Okay, so I may be one of the few that enjoyed this movie. I did not have high expectations and knew it would be silly. It did make me laugh. So, I was so happy when Isaw that this was available on DVD. In this day and age of technology, it is completely unacceptable to produce a DVD with such poor sound quality. I don't know why it is, but I constantly had to raise and lower the volume. I have not had this problem with any other DVD, so this was a real disappointment for me. I bought this DVD for under $10 and I still say it isn't worth $5! The sound is horrible. If you have not seen this film and you are a fan of the actor or the series, then rent it, and you won't feel like a sucker.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disgust from a Benigni lover March 18, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I am a great fan of Roberto Benigni, and own most of his films, including, unfortunately, this one. The plot could only be described as ponderous at best, the sight gags were mediocre, and the actors, who were obviously trying hard to bring this out of the muck, could not do the impossible. Benigni is only at his best when he writes and directs and when he can perform in his native Italian.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Good! December 7, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This is not the best Pink Panther film that I've seen. I've seen The Pink Panther, A Shot In The Dark, Inspector Clouseau, The Return Of The Pink Panther, The Pink Panther Strikes Again, Revenge Of The Pink Panther, Trail of The Pink Panther, Curse Of The Pink Panther, this one, and The Pink Panther {2006}. This is my 9th favorite Pink Panther Film. It is not as good as The Pink Panther Strikes Again. It has a great cast. Roberto Benigni as Gendarme Jacques Gambrelli, Herbert Lom as Police Commisioner Charles Dreyfus, Claudia Cardinale as Maria Gambrelli, Shabana Azmi as the Queen, Debrah Farentino as Princess Yasmin, Robert Davi as Hans Zarba, Burt Kwouk as Cato Fong, Graham Stark as Professor Auguste Balls, Oliver Cotton as King Haroak, and Dermot Crowley as Francois Duval. That was my review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The next generation of funny.... February 21, 2006
Format:DVD
I did see this movie and to be honest with you, the critics were a little too harsh. Cause, this movie was actually quite good. Basically, when a vacationing princess is kidnapped. It's up to Chief Inspector Dreyfus to find her. At first, Dreyfus doesn't have any luck. That is until he runs into the kidnappers, almost gets killed. But, is saved by a local bumbling police officer named Jacques. When Dreyfus stops by the local policeman's home and meets his mother. Dreyfus is shocked to learn that the policeman is the son of none other than Maria Gambrelli. (The woman from the movie "A Shot in The Dark"). Then Dreyfus is even more shocked to learn that Maria's son is infact the son of Jacques Clouseau!!!! Now, Dreyfus realize that only the way he'll find the princess. Is with Jacques Gambrelli's help, who does take after his father in everyway.

Format:VHS Tape
When Peter Sellers, alias Inspector Clouseau died (8th Semptember 1925 - 24th July 1980), Blake Edwards sould have ended the famous Panther movies, with Sellers as the star. But the latest one -"Curse of the Pink Panther (1983)" was surrely the worst part of the series, something that iven Peter Sellers the same didn't wanted throught. And sow we are in 1993, ten years after the disastrous "Curse of the P.P." and the star of the new film is Inspector Jacques Clouseau's illegitimate son Jacques Gambrelli (in the running time of the film, his name will change to Jacques Clouseau Jr.). But ecxept that, we also see another lovable friend from the *good old days*: Yes, we are talking for Commisioner Charles Dreyfus, played by Herbert Lom to perfection. And Burt Kwouk as Kato is also back, but not wait from him the ussual "snick-attacks". Graham Stark as Professor Balls is reapeting much of his lines in "Revenge of the P.P (1978)", but with a wonderfull way.
Any way, I must say that Edwards has made one of the better sequels in the lovable to all of as (the P.P. fans) Pink Panther Series (1963-1993).
In memory of Peter Sellers, the one and only Inspector Jacques Clouseau (1925-1980).
