Movie Info

Just released from a mental hospital, Charles Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) intends to off Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers), a former underling whose blundering drove the lawman around the bend. Dreyfus captures a scientist, ordering him to create a weapon that will destroy the planet, and threatens world leaders with annihilation unless they hand over his nemesis. Meanwhile, Clouseau goes to England to look for the vanished scientist, and his obliviousness turns out to be an asset.

Audience Reviews for The Pink Panther Strikes Again

  • Oct 06, 2012
    Another movie that follows the same basic formula of Jacques Clouseau being a buffoon and creating havoc everywhere he goes. But the movie has a bit of a "twist" with former Chief Inspector Dreyfuss, having been driven insane by Clouseau, becoming a super-villain and creating his own league of super-villains. It is by far the silliest entry in a movie series that's already silly by its nature, trust me when I say that. But, again, Peter Sellers makes it work with his tremendous work as Jacques Clouseau. The movie has by far some of the funniest scenes in the entire series, but there's also a point where the movie drags worse than the other films in the series. The film slows down tremendously for about 20 minutes or so during the Oktoberfest massacre. Which is kind of a shame, because the movie was on its way to being the funniest film in the series, not necessarily the best...but certainly the funniest. Unfortunately, it never reaches those heights. Still, it's a very fun film nonetheless, I'd definitely recommend it anyway. Unless you don't like really silly movies, in which case, this won't be to your liking.

    "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" is a total letdown. Not only is it boring, crass, and unappealing, but it thinks that it's being funny while doing all of those things. The humor is the same uninspired shtick that you'd see in any other movie and the plot doesn't really begin until about an hour in. This is a true disappointment for Blake Edwards, who is a good director.

    The Pink Panther is a letdown. Not only is it boring, crass, and unappealing, but it thinks that it's being funny while doing all of those things. The slapstick was the same that you'd see in any other movie and there's practically no plot until about an hour in. This is a true disappointment for Blake Edwards, who is a great director.

    Peter Sellers' makes the role of the fool look easy - but he is a genius. Strikes Again, in my opinion, is the funniest of the Pink Panther movies when it comes to one-liners and gut-busters. The scene where Clouseau interrogates the Fosbender staff may be one of the funniest things on film - EVER. But the story isn't what makes this movie good (thank goodness). "That is what I have been saying you idiot!" Clouseau's development as a character from the original Pink Panther through the later films is a testament to Sellers' genius. It's such a pity that his career was cut short. Strikes Again is one of his greatest works as Clouseau, and for non-stop laughs this is definitely the most entertaining of the Pink Panther collection. Story: B+ Acting: A- Direction: A- Visuals: B Overall: B+ ***1/2 out of 4 stars
