The character of Clifton Sleigh refreshes the tired series. This time Edwards took a much better approach by intruducing new protagonist instead of turing Wass into new Clouseau. Aldough Wass can't replace Sallers, the movie delivers a couple of funny gags. Although the Roger Moore cameo is lame for the most part. Some of the minor jokes don't work because of uneven comedic timing. Personaly I felt that the film had potential of taking the series into a new direction and I wish that this approach was maintained, so that we could see some more of Detective Sleigh. Instead we get the three terible follow-ups.

More painful to watch than actually funny.

I give the story a 2.5, but the humor a 3. Some of this one, was actually very very funny. Fitfully so. and like Trail, it even had Robert Wagner, David Niven and the whole cast of people that worked in all the movies all together, but in a plot, not just remembering Clouseau. But still missed Sellers.

What I really loved about the Peter Sellers films was how Inspector Clouseau would mispronounce certain words which combined with the bumbling actions of Inspector Clouseau were very entertaining, however in Curse of the Pink Panther the film falls flat with the fact that the new character of Clifton Sleigh as the bumbling actions down but not the same comedy that came from the tone and pronunciations of Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau.

A movie that doesn't have Peter Sellers in it doesn't work. Even the actors from the first movies can't save this shitty movie.

Malgré l'apparition géniale de Roger Moore, ça reste très moyen et inutile. Edwards exploite son bébé jusqu'au boutisme.

has some LOL moments but is sadly quiet forgetful

Bien meilleure que les autres suites car depourvues du personnage de CLOUSEAU (hors un cameo genial de ROGER MOORE), L'HERITIER DE LA PANTHERE ROSE recele de quelques perles comiques dues a TED WASS et HERBERT LOM, mais reste quand meme bien trop long et previsible. Il est temps que la saga s'arrete.

While making Trail of the Pink Panther (1982), Blake Edwards made another Pink Panther film, in the hope of continuing the series with another detective. Some of the gags have been seen before in previous Pink Panther films, but it does feel tired and lacking, and it ended in a $180 million lawsuit between Edwards and MGM/UA, so there was more excitement off the screen than on-screen. With Clouseau missing, Interpol utilize the Huxley 600 computer to find a detective to find Clouseau, but Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom), doesn't want Clouseau back, so he rigs the computer to find the worst detective in the world, and he's found in New York City Police Sergeant Clifton Sleigh (Ted Wass). Dreyfus believes Sleigh will never solve the case, but he ends up being more clumsier than Clouseau, and but his luck helps him move forwards with the case. Leading him to Sir Charles Lytton (David Niven) and his nephew George (Robert Wagner), but while Sleigh progresses with the case, mob boss Bruno Langlois (Robert Loggia) and Dreyfus try to kill him in an attempt to stop him finding Clouseau. It's not as bad as what critics say, especially when compared to comedies made now. But, Sellers as Clouseau was still fresh in people's minds, and while Wass of Soap does well with the physical comedy, he lacks Sellers' wordplay. Edwards originally wanted Rowan Atkinson to play Sleigh, who was originally written as an English constable. Oh, what could have been(!!) Plus, Roger Moore cameos.

Radical idea: end a film series before it becomes stale. If they had not filmed this film concurrently with Trail of the Pink Panther, I doubt they would have made this film after the critical financial failure of that film. But with it already in the can, they went ahead and released it. This time instead of using alternate takes and "flashbacks" to previous films with unfunny linking material, we just have a new investigator (found by a ridiculous computer clone selection process) interviewing people (some of whom were already interviewed about Clouseau in the last film). This new guy (Ted Wass, who is awful by the way) is trying to find the missing Clouseau and Pink Panther diamond (which did get stolen again at the beginning of the previous film but that got lost in the mix of the clip show)...and it is all rather unfunny and pointless. The one good thing is the cameo of James Bond, Roger Moore, as Clouseau.

The trademark to Pink Panther was Sellers, not sequels without Sellers!
½ June 17, 2011
This series had totally ran out of ideas by this point.

Misses Peter Sellers completely. Horrible.
March 27, 2011
Not a great film, but i did laugh. Roger Moore was rather good.
January 30, 2011
Not good, though the cast includes some fun guest stars, and it's nowhere near as bad as the abomination that is SON OF THE PINK PANTHER.
January 11, 2011
this is so wrong by letting ted wass by the "new" Clouseau
