TV Guide's Movie Guide

The picture is filled with one sight gag after another, many familiar to anyone old enough to remember the glory days of silent comedy.

The second Pink Panther film is a timeless piece of knockabout comic artistry and undoubtedly the best of the series.

This isn't quite up to the original, but it has its moments.

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.

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

Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

The perfectly balanced Clouseau flick. Brilliantly funny.

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.

Possibly the best of the Pink Panther movies, even though it isn't technically labeled as such.
