The best that can be said about it is that Kevin Kline is note perfect as the smarmy, scheming Chief Inspector Dreyfus and his undisguised contempt for Clouseau.

April 20, 2009
From the witty franchise that Peter Sellers and director Blake Edwards made famous comes a pale offshoot that lacks sufficient tempo, tone and supporting characters to make it satisfying.

I hope nobody misunderstands when I say: Steve Martin, you are no Peter Sellers. And while I'm at it; Shawn Levy, you are no Blake Edwards.

Without a whit of subtlety, this tired retread induces nary a laugh, only groans of disbelief that we're expected to find such a sorry string of dumb puns, infantile farts, awful accents and endless pratfalls funny.

All of [Martin's] hard work does pay off

Perhaps it's time to admit that The Pink Panther series is ready for permanent retirement.

...a slight yet sporadically hilarious update of the classic Peter Sellers/Blake Edwards film series.

The plot, needless to say, is negligible.

This remake, sadly, is far inferior to the original two Pink Panther films, despite the top-notch talent involved.

For now, though it's a mixed blessing, this seems like the movie Martin deserves.

April 14, 2006
Ciente de que Peter Sellers é inimitável como Closeau, Martin cria sua própria versão do personagem e, ainda que não chegue perto de se igualar ao original, consegue gerar boas risadas.

A fun and animated return to film for one of cinema's favourite characters, and a treat for the generation that have never seen him before.

When it comes to humor, this Pink is extremely pale.

March 18, 2006
Martin's valiant performance, however hamstrung by Sellers' ghost, is mired in a silly, inane plot that keeps the movie firmly grounded.

The film has an extremely high gag rate - it's just a shame that so few of them actually work.

Rest assured, the decision to remake this film had nothing to do with art, creativity, comedic zen, or some form of tribute to Sellers or Blake Edwards.

As for Martin, no matter how many he times he stumbles, fumbles, burns his balls or mispronounces the word hamburger, he never gets close to making the Clouseau persona his own.

This one will make you laugh early and often, and send you out of the theater in a cheerful mood. And, really, what more could you ask?

Animals, I imagine, have dreams with better narrative integrity.

To say that Steve Martin has miscalculated here is a kind way of saying this is the most boring and shallow comedy since You and Your Stupid Mate.
