Editorial Reviews

The fourth Pink Panther film with Peter Sellers and directed by Blake Edwards is easily the most over-the-top but it's still pretty entertaining. The story finds Clouseau's former boss (Herbert Lom) totally insane after years of enduring the bumbling detective and sequestered in a castle with a death-ray gun. Clouseau has to stop him from using the weapon on the world and his efforts to do so make for some choice Edwards-style slapstick. The quotient of destruction (a Clouseau staple) is higher than average but there is also real wit--particularly in a final scene where Lom re-creates his most famous role as the monster from the 1962 Phantom of the Opera. --Tom KeoghSystem Requirements:Running Time: 111 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY UPC: 027616905932 Manufacturer No: 1006392

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Phone Is Ringing....Relax, I'll Get It." July 4, 2004
Format:DVD
This is my all time favorite Pink Panther film. I think that I like it the best of the series as is dwells so totally on Herbert Lom's madness, which is, of course, entirely caused by Clouseau. The opening scene of the film sets the pace, with the brilliant slapstick 'Dreyfus in the lake' segment (I am particularly fond of the role of the rake in that scene.)
The characterizations of Dreyfus and Clouseau are totally wonderful in this film. Watching Dreyfus descend into total madness is one of the all time greatest comic performances. Sellers as Clouseau is wonderful playing off of Lom, in such great segments as the 'hallucinatory dentist' and the 'hunchback and the bomber' scenes. This film is much less subtle than my other favorite from the series "A Shot in the Dark", but what it loses in subtlety, it gains in situational humor unrivalled in any other comedy ("Does your dog bite?"..."No."..."I thought you said your dog did not bite."..."That is not my dog.") Only Sellers could make these scenes work, and work they do, brilliantly so.
There are so many great scenes and lines that I couldn't possibly list them. Some of the best lines ever written for a comedy are in this film. To go with the brilliance of the script, the excellent direction from Blake Edwards, the always entertaining animated credits, the beautiful sets, the acting from everyone, led, of course, by Sellers and Lom, is letter perfect.
The DVD is an excellent transfer, and very pleasant to watch. The only real options are language and subtitle related, though there is an original trailer. I would have loved to have seen some outtakes as extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the series January 28, 2001
Format:DVD
This is by far the best of the Pink Panther series of movies. Sellers is a comedic genius and the funniest Clousseau scenes are in this film. I saw this on the big screen while in grade school and vividly remember my friend and I bowled over in tears laughing so hard. This is the movie with such memorable scenes as: "Does your dog bite?...No....(dog bites Clousseau)...I thought you said your doig does not bite?....That is not my dog" and the famous "Blemish? But that's a priceless Steinway!...Not anymore" as well as Clousseau's visit to the Octoberfest where two assailants both miss Clousseau and kill each other in the bathroom. Every supporting actor (the guys who played President Gerald Ford and Henry Kissinger were superb) was believable and set up the scenes so well for the bumbling Clousseau. If you only get one of the Sellers' Pink Panther movies, this is THE ONE to have because I believe you will tearfully laugh every time you watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest "Panther" January 3, 2001
Format:DVD
The inimitable Peter Sellers strikes again as Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau, in this fourth installment of the classic "Pink Panther" series, "The Pink Panther Strikes Again," directed by Blake Edwards. Given the fact that the assessment of comedy is intrinsically subjective, this film is arguably laugh for laugh and sight gag for sight gag the funniest of the five (followed closely by the second of the series, the hilarious farce, "A Shot In The Dark). In this one, former Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) is about to be released from the mental hospital-- in which he has resided since being driven crazy by Clouseau-- when on the very afternoon of his hearing he is visited by none other than Clouseau himself, who has come to speak on behalf of his former boss. Suffice to say that by the time Clouseau is through "helping," he is driven from the premises by the relapsed, raving madman, Dreyfus. And it's only the beginning of the inept French Inspector's antics that, before it is over, will include a trip to the Ocktoberfest, encounters with a dozen hit-men from around the world, a beautiful Russian spy named Olga (Lesley-Anne Down), a surprise Egyptian spy (who will remain nameless) and a one-man assault on a castle. As Laurel and Hardy proved so many times before, for every action there is a reaction; a theorem of which proof is unequivocally provided here by the relationship between Sellers and Lom. This was the film in which Edwards and his stars not only further devised, but honed to perfection, their foolproof formula for laughs: After the "first wave" of hilarity provided by Sellers, it is followed up-- in just enough instances to be totally effective-- by Lom's reaction to 1.) Sellers directly (as in the first, classic scene at the mental hospital), or 2. Read more ›

It should really come as no surprise to anyone that my favorite of the Pink Panther movies is the 1976 laugh-out-loud fest THE PINK PANTHER STRIKES AGAIN. I am a big fan of the James Bond movies and here we have the Pink Panther at its most James Bond-ish with a madman holding the world to ransom from his atop his remote secret lair. I am also a huge Lesley-Anne Down fan (see my review of 1981's SPHINX) and she appears here as a Russian secret agent.
There really is no unfunny sequences in this movie and Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau is in top form.
Returning as Clouseau's tortured superior Dreyfus is the always excellent Herbert Lom who, after having failed to eliminate Clouseau himself decides to kidnap a scientist, build a super weapon and have the rest of the world send their best assassins to kill the hapless Inspector. Of course things do not go according to plan for the villain and through luck, timing and happenstance a myriad of agents fail as the oblivious Clouseau wanders through the scenes.
One of my favorite scenes is the attempt by Clouseau to interrogate the staff of an English manor following the kidnapping of the professor. Just check out a couple of the exchanges, all handled expertly by Sellars.
Shawk: I'm Shawk trhe gardener
Clouseau: And what is it that you do?
Shawk: I'm the gardener!
Clouseau: Why didn't you say that in the first place?
Shawk: I did
Clouseau: Look, don't try to get funny with me!
LATER IN THE SCENE
Clouseau: Look, what was your name?
Shawk: Shawk
Couseau: The cook!
Shawk: The gardener
Clouseau: Arrrr.....now we are getting somewhere!

(After smashing a piano in a vain attempt to kill a bee)
Housekeeper: But that was a priceless Steinway.
