Editorial Reviews

When a star soccer coach is murdered and his priceless Pink Panther diamond stolen, France is in an uproar. Fortunately, Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin, Bowfinger, Cheaper by the Dozen) is on the case. He doesn't have a clue, but for Clouseau, that's just a minor detail. With his partner, Gilbert Ponton (Jean Reno, The Da Vinci Code, The Professional), he careens from one misadventure to the next, leaving mayhem in his wake from the boulevards of Paris to the streets of New York. Will he seduce the pop diva, Xania (Beyoncé, Austin Powers: Goldmember)? Will he push Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Oscar(r) winner Kevin Kline, 1988 Best Supporting Actor, A Fish Called Wanda) over the edge? Will he catch the killer and recover the diamond? With Inspector Clouseau, anything is possible.

By Bryan Carey VINE VOICE on July 18, 2006
Format: DVD
This 2006 movie remake is a comedy film with plenty of slapstick, sex jokes, fart jokes, and physical- type humor. It offers Kevin Kline and Steve Martin in the main roles and having watched the original Pink Panther and one of the Pink Panther follow ups (Return of the Pink Panther), I can say with confidence that this version isn't very good. With the original Pink Panther, you had David Niven and Peter Sellers in the starring roles in a comedy movie that was fun, original, and entertaining all the way through thanks to the performances and the script. With this version, you have a movie that relies on fart jokes, vases stuck to Steve Martin's hands, bullets falling out of a revolver, and other assorted silliness for its entertainment value.

In some ways, one can't help but laugh during certain moments of this film- even when the comedy isn't very mature or very original. Take for instance a scene near the beginning where Steve Martin's Inspector Clouseau character is trying to parallel park his small car between two other cars. There is plenty of room, but the idiotic Clouseau keeps backing the car and moving it forward, hitting the car in front and the car behind and causing the bumpers to fall off of each of the two vehicles. It isn't original and it isn't intelligent but you find yourself laughing anyway. Much of the comedy in the rest of the movie is of the same variety. It does make you laugh a little, but the humor is more the result of the comedy's goofiness than genuine funniness.

Among the performers in this movie, the only one worth mentioning is Steve Martin and his portrayal of the French- accented character, the bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau.

A Kid's Review on May 20, 2006
Format: DVD
Of course, like most people, I hope this hilarious movie has a sequal. The end was really cool and dramatic, which I liked. Better than the original, "The Pink Panther" made me laugh out loud until my side ached and my eyes watered.

Those enourmous microscopy glasses thingies that the Inspector wore were very funny. When I watched the movie, I had lots of suspects in my mind. It was brilliant!

Overall, it is a very funny movie. I want to buy the DVD.

Some movie legacies should remain untouched. Such are for instance the entire Peter Sellers legacy or the Charles Chaplin legacy or even the entire Star Wars saga. The movies they made for example CANNOT be remade. They have an entirely unique style and touch. Remaking these movies is like rebuilding the WTC. IT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.

Ah yes, the Pink Panther films of the 1960's and 1970's. Peter Sellers, hilarious French accents, pain and destruction gags, the Pink Panther diamond that kept getting stolen, the animated character who appeared in the titles sequence, and that famous theme song by Henry Mancini. Well, in this latest version of the film, clearly the latter five are present, given that Sellers passed away in 1980. Despite being identically titled to the original 1964 movie, this is clearly a Pink Panther movie for the current generation and technology, given the use of cellphones and references to the Internet and email.

The story? A French football coach, Yves Gluant, the owner of the Pink Panther diamond, is murdered after the French score the winning goal, the giant diamond which was shown on his fist on the stadium's giant screen TV, missing. Chief Inspector Dreyfus sees this as the chance to become a winner and not merely a nominee for the French medal of honour. He plans to have a total nincompoop in charge of a bogus investigation, while Dreyfus himself conducts the real one with smarter people. Guess who's in charge of the bogus one?

The suspects range from Bizu, a football player whose girlfriend, pop singer Xania, was stolen by Gluant. Then there's Raymond Leroq, the casino owner whom Gluant went into a partnership with, but whose gambling habit irritated Leroq. Xania, played with bootyliciousness by Beyonce Knowles, is well aware that Clouseau (Steve Martin) is gaga at the sight of her and uses her feminine wiles to... well, maybe divert suspicion?

Clouseau is given help in the form of Gilbert Ponton (Jean Reno), someone who is used to following orders. However, during the investigation, it's apparent that he is more competent than his superior.

Very disappointing. This was literally difficult to watch, and we love comedies. I invited my mom over for dinner and a movie and even she agreed that I change it to somethng else half way through. From the ridiculously stupid boring animated opening credits (the original Panther cartoon antics from 35 years ago were much superior, even when viewed now) to Kevin Kline's wooden chief inspector Dreyfus character (wow how did such a good actor get directed into this lousy situation?), I knew that this was going to be a truly grade-Z film, but I put up with it for half an hour. You know the feeling- you hope and you hope for it to get better. This only got worse. Steve Martin was like a walking corpse- not funny at all. Okay maybe for a six year old or maybe even eight years old.

Slapstick is not a bad thing when it is done right. It has to accompany good comedy lines. The slapstick in this was "out of nowhere" without any comedic connection to the story at all. It would hit you like a stinking breeze- not fun at all. I would start to cringe every time another stink bomb appeared on the screen. It was as if the actors, screenwriters and directors planned on duplicating the original Herbert Lom (true comedic perfectiont as inspector Dreyfus!), and they failed miserably so they decided to do the OPPOSITE and this film was the result. It came out horribly.

It is a shame that this was even made. I can't believe I am wasting even more time talking about it, since it brings up such boring stupid memories! How on earth did this get more than one or two stars on Amazon? This I cannot believe! Makes me wonder what some one else said a while back- that the reviews are skewed here. I never believed it until now. Avoid this one at all costs unless you want to keep five year olds busy in the back of your SUV during a long trip. But don't blame me if they too turn it off in disgust.
