Martin Misses Again,
This review is from: The Pink Panther (DVD)
Anyone who saw Martin's version of "Sgt. Belko" should have seen this version of "The Pink Panther" coming like a bad car wreck.
Martin is always better off with original material rather than a re-imagining of old,well-known classic material made famous by other comedians/actors. Do you think any other comic on the planet could do a remake of "The Jerk"?
On the "Pink Panther" movie itself; it was not just a poorly done rehash, but it missed the point of Seller's dry delivery and slapstick mishaps as the clueless Inspector Clouseau.
There was just not one memorable, laugh out loud moment I can recount in the whole film. Probably because I was constantly thinking how horribly mis-cast this film was.
If ANYONE should have been Couseau, it should have been Kevin Klein. His performances in "A Fish Called Wanda" and "French Kiss" proves his comedic chops.
Reno as Martin's assistant was another blunder. Where the hell was Cato? A major missing link in the Clouseau chain.
