All of [Martin's] hard work does pay off

...a slight yet sporadically hilarious update of the classic Peter Sellers/Blake Edwards film series.

For now, though it's a mixed blessing, this seems like the movie Martin deserves.

Ciente de que Peter Sellers é inimitável como Closeau, Martin cria sua própria versão do personagem e, ainda que não chegue perto de se igualar ao original, consegue gerar boas risadas.

A fun and animated return to film for one of cinema's favourite characters, and a treat for the generation that have never seen him before.

This one will make you laugh early and often, and send you out of the theater in a cheerful mood. And, really, what more could you ask?

Martin is charming as Clouseau and, after all the bad buzz leading up to release, I think Sony is actually going to have a hit on their hands.

Steve Martin was able to do what no one had done so far - follow in the footsteps of Peter Sellers.

I am a huge fan of Steve Martin and did like him as Clouseau. The film didn't live up to expectations, but his likeability did.

The pain-and-destruction humor won't tickle everyone as pink as the cartoon character but still provides some good escapist fare.

If you can divorce yourself from total allegiance to the original %u2013 or if you have no allegiance to the original - then this is an enjoyable movie with some real laughs courtesy of a modern day comic genius.

While the flat site gags never quite disappear, they're offset by an equal number of bits that'll keep you in stitches. It's good (mostly clean) light fun.

While it's not up to the Sellers ones from the '60s and '70s, like the Sellers-less Curse of and Son of, it definitely has its moments.

Despite 'bending it a little,' Steve Martin manages to capture the humorous essence of Inspector Clouseau's character.

Martin does a good job stumbling into Sellers' shoes, and it's all funny enough, depending on your tolerance for slapstick and odd accents.

Steve Martin is no Peter Sellers, but he still makes a winning Inspector Clouseau.

it doesn't stink. Au contraire: It's good. Maybe not a masterwork, but good enough to redeem the series and its intrepid, mustachioed twit.

It's not quite on the high comedic plane of 'Do you have a license for that moon-key?' But AM-bourg-airs will do. Just ask the kids.
