Editorial Reviews

Insanity is relative in the final installment of the Pink Panther series, starring "gifted comedian" (Variety) Roberto Benigni along with Panther alumni Herbert Lom, Burt Kwouk and Claudia Cardinale. Fueled by Benigni's "wacky charm" (Blockbuster Entertainment Guide) and "splendidly fractured English" (Halliwell's Film and Video Guide), Son of the Pink Panther proves that a family resemblance can sometimes be painfully obvious. An Arabian princess is kidnapped, and it's up to Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Lom) to save her. Fortunately, there's no Clouseau around to plague him this time! But when a klutzy local cop with the unfortunate name of Jacques (Benigni) is assigned to help him, he manages to run Dreyfus over and blow him upall on his first day on the job. Soon Dreyfus begins to fear that if Clouseau has a long-lost son, he would be a lot like this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just for fun March 11, 2010
Format:DVD
Being a Pink Panther fan, this is a wonderful addition to my collection. It was so enjoyable seeing so many of the faces found in the Pink Panther movies - it was pure fun.

I choose this rating because the movie is good. What I like about the movie is that insanity is relative in the final installment of the Pink Panther series, starring “gifted comedian” (Variety) Roberto Benigni along with Panther alumni Herbert Lom, Burt Kwouk and Claudia Cardinale. Fueled by Benigni's “wacky charm” (Blockbuster Entertainment Guide) and “splendidly fractured English” (Halliwell's Film and Video Guide), Son of the Pink Panther proves that a family resemblance can sometimes be painfully obvious!

Soon Dreyfus begins to fear that if Clouseau has a long-lost son, he would be a lot like this! What I dislike about the movie is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this movie to other people.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ho boy July 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was just plain bad. Not bad enough to give it one stars as there were a few spots where I laughed. But ugh! Trying to resurrect the Panther series with this poor excuse for a story, not a good idea. This is not worthy to have "Pink Panther" in the title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! December 3, 2009
Format:DVD
I felt compelled to write this review to balance out the other negative one. I think the movie is great! It is a continuation of the series after Clouseau's apparent death with Dreyfus discovering Clouseau had a son! Given this, you should not expect it to be Peter Sellers in any way. It is different but hilarious in the same way. Even Dreyfus' eye-twitching returns!

If you want to talk about a film disaster, try the new Pink Panther movies with Martin.
Trying to recreate Seller's and Herbert Lom's characters is a travesty in film history!
Sad thing is most people who haven't seen the original films don't know the difference.

But this movie is excellent and in the tradition of the classic films with a new personality to it! One of the funniest out there!

2.0 out of 5 stars Unworthy extension of Pink Panther franchise April 16, 2010
By Zap
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Son of the Pink Panther isn't bad, but Roberto Benigni is no Peter Sellers. I get the feeling that he's trying to be funny rather than being totally sincere in his misadventures.
I can understand the desire to continue the franchise but feel that Blake Edwards should have let well enough alone when Peter Sellers passed away.
