News & Interviews for Pink Panther 2
Critic Reviews for Pink Panther 2
It's not a crime to be silly, although the cast of The Pink Panther 2 dance perilously close to committing at the very least a misdemeanor.
Offers more of what was in the 2006 remake, which became a hit in spite of the chorus of film critics who pointed out that the movie was awful and then were roundly ignored by the public, which knows what it likes, thank you very much.
It's unlikely that anyone over 10 will find much to cheer in this film, and adults will just be depressed by seeing a once-cutting-edge wit like Mr. Martin debasing himself.
Audience Reviews for Pink Panther 2
I dunno why I watched this I really don't, maybe cause I'm a sucker for Steve Martin and his classic looney old days, aaah so good. The first Panther was actually reasonably funny in places, the hamburger scene was hilarious, trying to park his little smart car, Martin and Reno in skin tight leotards creeping around haha
This second venture is just a rehash of the first in everyway, all the jokes have been seen in the original Sellars films AND the original Martin version, they have basically just gone over old ground yet again, absolutely nothing original here. The prat falls, jokes and set ups are so predictable and childish its embarrassing, the only amusing part was at the start when Cleese finds out he is being overlooked for a position in the 'dream team' for 'Clouseau', don't bother.
Sequel to Pink Panther is just as bad as the first. Steve Martin's inspector Clouseau is unfunny and quite irritating, instead of being funny. I felt that this film missed the mark. This is an awful sequel to an already awful film. I really don't know why this was made. The first film was dreadful. The acting and story felt out of place, and nothing really fit. I had a hard time watching this. I had a hard time finishing it, and when it was over, I was relieved. This film sucked. Everything about it was bad. I usually like Steve Martin, but in this film along with the first film, it was terrible. Just bad. I can't grasp at how bad this one was. The humor is shallow, stupid and really doesn't feel right. The film sets the lowest standards for mediocrity. This is an awful sequel that has some of the most stupid moments that I have seen. I really don't get why this film was made. Steve Martin is painfully annoying in the role of Clouseau, and he makes the film not enjoyable whatsoever. If you've seen the first film, then you don't need to see this film. This sequel is stupid, badly conceived and above all, a waste of time. Avoid this film; you'll be glad you did. There's nothing to be had here except, tired irritating comedy. I've seen such a poorly made comedy since Dumb and Dumberer. The Pink Panther 2 fails to deliver good, genuine laughs.
As much as I love Steve Martin.... his Inspector Clouseau character is too much of a buffoon versus accidentally ingenious. More annoying than the Insp. Clouseau he could portray in a more clever way. John Cleese offers the only really brilliant comedic performance.
