Audience Reviews for Trail of the Pink Panther

This film was a big cut and paste movie. When Peter Sellers died, this film should have ended there. The Pink Panther movies never cussed until this one. There were a lot of questionable scenes. I normally love Pink Panther movies, but this was not very good. The trail is the worst in the pink panther seris.

I think it's disgusting to make a "sequel" in which Clouseau is "missing" when he reality they used clips from previous movies because Peter Sellers was dead.
