While it does have its moments, this film has a hard time balancing providing an engaging, coherent narrative with providing laugh-out-loud humor ultimately achieving just enough in both to make for an okay sequel.

This movie is a cinematic masterpiece. It moved me from several emotions all at once. I was experiencing laughter, crying, anger, and a stroke. This movie's nuanced approach to race and culture, having a united team all working together, is just what this global climate needs. As tensions rise between Trump's America and "Rocketman", we need a hero like Inspector Cluso. Steve Martin's portrayal of a French man of the law is extremely well practiced and executed for the 2nd time. While this movie pales in comparison to the genius which was the first movie, it holds its own as a treasure itself. It was totally snubbed for an Academy Award the year it was released. With performances of a lifetime, a steel solid riveting plot, and the hopeful message of justice, Black Panther deserves five full stars.

PS: I can't wait to see Clouseau in Infinity War!!

The original was a classy adult film, about a man who just happened to be clumsy or unlucky who was also genuinely (but lovingly) oblivious. What sold it was that Peter Sellars acted Cluso seriously, not trying to look funny, and everyone did their best to act sophisticated regardless. In the Pink Panther 2, they play up the try-hard in the writing and acting so hard that nothing is funny but it's too stupid for adults. In my opinion, instead of resting on his laurels as a "funny man", Martin should have spent way more time in the role before keeping takes. Jean Reno's accent was better in the Da Vinci code, but aside from that his performance was passable. The writing was as if it was a kid's movie, except for scenes centered around his political incorrectness as the joke and only premise of the scene. The only way this movie would have been funny if it was played at a Peter Sellars roast.

About on par with the first Pink Panther movie. The odd funny part but really silly.

Funny slapstick and an ensemble cast are mostly enough to create an entertaining sequel, but it may not be as fresh as the first.

Mostly funny if you're younger than drinking age, The Pink Panther 2 holds some decent gags and some not-so-decent ones too.

Not as good the first movie, but it is nonetheless still funny and Steve Martin still has the comic energy that made the first film a good comedy.

Good fun! Of course Steve Martin and John Cleese are great, and I enjoyed seeing serious actors bringing their considerable talents to light-hearted roles...

As a Pink Panther fan myself, this film is not only a disgrace to the original 9 films, but to comedy as a whole.

The inspector must track down a stolen diamond in this needless sequel.
April 25, 2016
Even worse than the first Steve Martin remake and that one was terrible enough to earn it 0 stars. The only way they could make a worse Pink Panther remake was if Steve Martin physically danced on the grave of Peter Sellers.

I gave the first one zero stars. If there was something even worse to rate it I would.
