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.

...more of the film's jokes fall flat than hit their mark...

Not funny, and certainly shouldn't be rated a kid-friendly PG either.

I was not a fan of the first of these new Pink Panther films, but I must admit this time around Martin nails the puffed-up twittery of the character and performs the physical gags well.

It's not only a pointless resurrection of Blake Edwards' classic comic franchise, but a formulaic photocopy of its predecessor -- Steve Martin's 2006 remake.

There are some beautifully constructed, elaborately inventive sequences of mayhem involving sight gags; then there are the scenes in between, when people talk. These are mostly disappointing.

Steve Martin reprises his role as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau in this hideous sequel to a boring remake.

Nothing in this sequel of the remake makes us groan with embarrassment, as several scenes in the first one did

Much of the "comedy" in The Pink Panther 2 is a rehashing of the jokes from the first film.

Wasteful, unneeded sequel to Shawn Levy's already unnecessary 2006 remake/series reboot.

It's been a long time (the 1980s, maybe?) since either Cleese or Martin was actually funny, but the director, Harald Zwart, compounds this by displaying zero sense of comedy, employing laboured visual gags and routines with no punch lines.

The producers appear to believe that farce (that most delicate of genres) is humour played with the utmost crudity.

Comedy crime caper is more miss than hit.

This revisiting of Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau catapults Martin so far beyond the pale of authentic comedy that there can be no hope of return.

There is something depressingly old hat about the slapstick in The Pink Panther 2, a movie whose target audience appears to be tiny tots and those with a high tolerance for jokes about people falling over.

Not so much bad as it is unnecessary.
