Steve Martin is back doing the fur-nay ack-saynt (now increasingly eun-fur-nay); and with this film he's very much channelling the spirit of the final Panther movies from the original series, when Peter Sellers had nothing to offer but despair.
I laughed more times than I thought I would so that is a big improvement on the previous film which almost made my toes curl. It will keep the kids quiet over half term and it won't be the worst film you see this year.
Cheap-looking, and peddling a humour that charitable folks will call broad and the rest of us will call unfunny, Pink Panther 2 may still appeal to audiences in non-English-speaking countries where physical comedy in the Mr Bean mould prospers.
feel free to sing along here: "It's a stinker, Pink Panther, your heart'll sinky-dink panther. And it's as plain as your noooose . . .You couldn't make a weaker, truly aby-si-mal, ranker Pink Panther from heeead-to-toooooes."
