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

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.

Let's face it: no one can compare to Peter Sellers. But they could have done a better job in this movie. Benigni's clumsiness was way overdone, and the humor was just crude slapstick with no imagination, and totally lacking in the subtlety that made Peter Sellers' antics so hilarious. As one reviewer said, it was only Herbert Lom and Burt Kwok who held the movie together.

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.

I liked SON OF THE PINK PANTHER immensely. To me it reverts to a style of comedy found in the original PINK PANTHER and A SHOT IN THE DARK. What is sad is that SON OF THE PINK PANTHER is just out of step for its time. I thought Roberto Benigni's performance was a hoot. He was perfect. It is a silly film and so were the originals. But this film has heart and an endearing quality to it. It was once again great to see Herbert Lom as Police Commisioner Charles Dreyfus, Burt Kwouk as Cato Fong, Graham Stark playing Professor Auguste Balls and Claudia Cardinale playing Maria Gambrelli. The score was once again composed by Henry Mancini and he is even seen in the film's credits. I believe this was his last cinematic score. At the helm of it all was Blake Edwards once more a his final time. There is just something very nostalgic about SON OF THE PINK PANTHER. I like it. I think it is a fine Panther Film.

This movie looks like it started out as a serious attempt to revive the Pink Panther series, then in mid-stream everyone decided that it wasn't going to work out, so they just ended up going through the motions.

The story has the Pink Panther diamond stolen yet again, and put onto a case is a stumblebum young French policeman who is unaware that he is Inspector Jacques Clouseau's illegitimate son, his mother being Maria Gambrelli from "A Shot In The Dark". The plot is thin and confusing and hokey (Dreyfus falling in love with Gambrelli?) and the laughs are few. Robert Benigni, who plays the son, brings boyish enthusiasm to the role, but nobody else in the movie helps him.

The inherent problem with this movie is that Benigni is supposed to replace the Inspector Clouseau role. But the idea of Jacques Clouseau was that his character was one who kept acting dignified and haughty no matter what pratfalls he went through; Benigni purposefully acts like a silly clown and the whole concept of Clouseau is spoiled. The whole series just didn't work without Peter Sellers.

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.

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.
