Movie Info

When the coach of a French soccer team is killed, his ring featuring the legendary Pink Panther diamond goes missing. Luckily, Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kevin Kline) has a plan: assign his most intelligent, most driven officers to track down the thieves in secret, while publicly assigning the bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin) as head of the case. Clouseau seems hopeless, until his various mistakes and misjudgments miraculously put him on the real killer's trail.

    No where near as bad as its reputation. In actuality the movie is mildly amusing eliciting a lot more laughs than the last three Panther movies that Blake Edwards made combined. Also, Martin is clearly having the time of his life as Clouseau.

    I don't even see the point of having a remake of the classic. Even the talent from Steve Martin cannot save the film.

    Steve Martin is on the case in The Pink Panther. When the coach of France's national soccer team is murdered and his famous Pink Panther diamond stolen, bumbling police detective Inspector Jacques Clouseau is tasked with solving the case. Co-starring Kevin Kline, Jean Reno, and Emily Mortimer, the cast is pretty good and has a talent for this style of broad comedy. However, it's the comedy stylings of Steve Martin that have to carry the film, and he does a great job with the slapstick humor. Still, there's a lot of juvenile stuff that doesn't really work, and Beyonce Knowles is dead weight. The Pink Panther is a fun film with plenty of laughs, but they don't always land.

    I resented the very idea of this from the beginning, even the suggestion, and so was pleasantly surprised when some of the nonsense actually garnered a hard earned smile from me. Reno as the second banana: a surprise. And Mortimer? Why didn't they give her more? Martin's behind the scenes, too, on the script, so this is essentially his baby, and its not as ugly as I thought it was going to be. Saw it on Youtube.
