I was not a fan of the first of these new Pink Panther films, but I must admit this time around Martin nails the puffed-up twittery of the character and performs the physical gags well.

There are some beautifully constructed, elaborately inventive sequences of mayhem involving sight gags; then there are the scenes in between, when people talk. These are mostly disappointing.

Nothing in this sequel of the remake makes us groan with embarrassment, as several scenes in the first one did

Guardian

Steve Martin is back doing the fur-nay ack-saynt (now increasingly eun-fur-nay); and with this film he's very much channelling the spirit of the final Panther movies from the original series, when Peter Sellers had nothing to offer but despair.

...after a long week of financial worries, children worries, job worries, The Pink Panther 2 hits all the right notes and is an excellent 90-minute escape.

The second take featuring Steve Martin as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau occasionally -- only occasionally -- gets a clue, thanks to The Pink Panther 2's strong cast and the intermittent cute line.

It won't blow you away, but it's worth a few laughs.

Clouseau's sleuthing practices are so unbelievably absurd it's hard not to laugh.

If The Pink Panther 2 can keep our kids laughing while giving them the same warm memories we associate with the best installments of the series, then it's still a success no matter how well it measures up to the original.

None of it is memorable, though the audience it's aimed at will giggle at the adults gone goofy.

Serves up enough goofy pranks and fractured wordplay to keep the series purring along.

It's all about Martin's commitment. He knows the rules, the limits and he's an expert at performing it. Even the stunt doubles do some awesome work.

Despite all the supporting star power, it's Martin's physical comedy that makes the movie.

Offers more of what was in the 2006 remake, which became a hit in spite of the chorus of film critics who pointed out that the movie was awful and then were roundly ignored by the public, which knows what it likes, thank you very much.

Washington Times

It's unlikely that anyone over 10 will find much to cheer in this film, and adults will just be depressed by seeing a once-cutting-edge wit like Mr. Martin debasing himself.
