First of the Pink Panther sequels, establishing Sellers' incompetent Inspector Clouseau as a viable series character, and prompting Blake Edwards into an unchallenging downhill coast for far too long.

The crime plot itself is merely window dressing for the one hundred minute showcase of Peter Sellers' amazing timing with both verbal and physical comedy.

Sometimes the narrative is subordinated to individual bits of business and running gags but Sellers' skill as a comedian again is demonstrated.
