July 3, 2014
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.
August 7, 2012
The picture is filled with one sight gag after another, many familiar to anyone old enough to remember the glory days of silent comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
August 7, 2012
The second Pink Panther film is a timeless piece of knockabout comic artistry and undoubtedly the best of the series.
August 7, 2012
This isn't quite up to the original, but it has its moments.
August 7, 2012
The original Pink Panther movie, and perhaps even the best. Sellars is, obviously, stellar.

Sometimes the narrative is subordinated to individual bits of business and running gags but Sellers' skill as a comedian again is demonstrated.
April 2, 2010
Despite the continental suavity, this is a most brutal work, the end of an era as comic classicism is skewered by the jaundiced humor of the new decade

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.
May 3, 2005
Perhaps the series' most effervescent entry.

'La genialidad de Sellers es, por mucho, más divertida que cualquier propuesta actual.'

March 16, 2004
A few of the set-pieces are tours de force on the part of Sellers

June 13, 2003
The funniest in the Pink Panther series
| Original Score: 5/5
May 20, 2003
It is mad, but the wonderful dexterity and the air of perpetually buttressed dignity with which Mr. Sellers plays his role make what could quickly be monotonous enjoyable to the end.

...generally considered one of the best, if not the best, in the series.
