Pink Panther 2 Reviews
February 5, 2009
Perhaps I'm too old for this. But this is not as funny as I remembered the first movie to be. They reused the "hamburger" part...which makes it a bore..then they tried to make a new "hamburger ver" with the politically correct teacher...not funny. While it has some funny dialogue, the overall french accent makes everything very hard to understand. The whole romance with Inspector Clouseau and Nicole is also very awkward and uninteresting....basically the inspector is ridiculous and pretty predictable.

I really do miss the Steve Martin of the Little Shop of Horrors and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
This film is the official nose dive for me. The point where I have just had enough of these Cheaper By the Dozens and Pink Panthers. I want something dark- or maybe something that's plain and simply funny from Steve Martin.
Also, the question has to be asked to who this film is made for. You'd think this to be a family film- but stick this in front of them and they will be bored to death. For adults, there is no charm or warmth to it.
A definition of this would be many random gags, unrelated to each other, attempted to be woven into some kind of plot. I actually felt a little embarassed watching the film.
It seemed like everyone was simply there because it says they have to be in some kind of contract. Everyone seemed tired and, once again, embarassed.
To be honest though, with a family film or comedy, the story isn't the most important part. As long as it's funny then it really doesn't matter- 'This is the End' is a great example of this, although a slightly different context. The difference is that this film really isn't funny at all.
It worked for the originals, as it was a different time. And it holds up today, as you almost watch it in a different mind set- a feeling of nostalgia fills the screen. When the remake was released, it was exceedingly mediocre, and just felt utterly pointless.
If the first film felt pointless- this felt like I was being exploited. 'The first one was bad, but people will come to see a family film whatever it is. Hey you, Generic Joe, can you write a script due in tomorrow... You can! Well don't worry about the quality, the people who watch these films must be idiots.'
This film will make you feel like an idiot, but if you do like seeing the low points of some of your favourite actors, then you can see this.
A 90 minute film that seems to last for 120.
If you want to laugh at a film. Don't watch this. If you want to feel smart, and look down on something.
This is for you!

Inspector Clouseau is on the case once again in The Pink Panther 2. When a notorious thief known as The Tornado comes out of retirement a crack team of Europe's top investigators is assembled to catch him, with Inspector Clouseau leading the charge. Steve Martin, Jean Reno, and Emily Mortimer return, and are joined by Andy Garcia, John Cleese, and Alfred Molina. The slapstick comedy is way overdone, and there's no subtlety to it. Still, some of the ridiculousness is just too funny. The Pink Panther 2 isn't as good as the first film, but it delivers plenty of laughs.

The cast of the last film is back with new members ... in a movie that has no plot, no point or worst no so fun.

A great cast, a lot of action, no injury time, so many physical gags and good jokes, some beautiful sets and places, make it be an excellent movie. Sadly a bit short, considering all this.
It's great how they succeed to create a character in the same time so dumb, idiot, but also very intelligent, very intuitive detective. And the worst is that it's totally credible.
Lovely music that we all know by heart, and it was good to see also the toon at the end of the movie, and during the beginning's credits also.
Way better, funnier, well written than the 1st movie.

I used to like Steve Martin, but when he makes one awful re-make of a master piece then follows that awful re-make with a sequel, c'mon dude! What happen to your brain. You can't even compare this to Peter Sellers and Blake Edwards! The producers that made this are money hunger losers!

The Critics hate it... but then again they would! It's Not meant to be taken seriously, almost nothing in this movie is serious. Its Unbelievable and silly an the slapstick gags are continuous, but that's why it's so funny!

Quite funny. The comedy here is very subtle as was the first film. Lily Tomlin is hilarious!

Tiene menos tiras y más aflojas en comparación con su predecesora. Aún así, sigue siendo divertida.

A pesar de ser muy cliche, y exagerar en algunas ocasiones, aun asi es muy entretenida y con comedia descente, que te sacara muchas risas y es la mas divertida forma de ver una peli de misterio y de detectives n_n

This is the sequel of the first Pink Panther with Steven Martin. This is defenitly not the best Pink Panther, but I laughed out loud when I watched this movie, I really did, this is probably Martin's funniest role ever, it really is. The rest of the cast is very good, for french actors choise, Jean Reno was the best guy they cood get. Sow, this movie is very entertaining, it has a great cast, but it's mostly hilarious, honestly, I've seen a couple of reviews saying that Martin is not funny in this movie, but let me tell you something, I wood like to slap those persons on the face while they were watching this movie just to make sure of what's really happening, because I laughed from the beginning until the end, when Martin was on the screen, I just cood not stop laughing. Overall, this is not a memorable movie, I mean, even though I gave it a great rating, is not that much memorable for me, but one thing is for sure, when I watch it again or even think about it, I will defenitly laugh. One of the most hilarious movies I have ever seen. Very recommended movie. Grade: A.

I feel obligated to say I'm reviewing this from memory, but still- No. The first one was family watchable, but not this one. You don't know who the jokes are geared toward, but it doesn't matter because it's not funny.
