Each routine was done better -- and funnier -- long ago by Sellers. Gags about getting drunk, mispronouncing words, dressing up in disguises, executing pratfalls and other inane physical bits have become old and tired.

Nothing is sadder than seeing a once-beloved movie series churning out sequels long after its time is past.

What a bore, don't spawn Peter Sellers!

Ill-fated attempt to re-ignite the Clouseau series ... with Roberto Benigni.

What's missing? Zest, creativity, density, paprika, astonishment, speed. Most of all: speed. Slapstick is like basketball -- if it doesn't happen fast, it doesn't happen.

[Benigni's] cheerful physicality and soul -- combined with Edwards's continuing feel for slapstick -- give the tired routines of Son of the Pink Panther whatever life they have.

never does it get any more amusing than someone falling down, falling out of a window, or falling off of a bed

Benigni tries, but it simply isn't any fun without Peter Sellers.

What Son of the Pink Panther doesn't have, in addition to Mr. Sellers, is a screenplay that is even semi-coherent.

Outside of the James Bond films, it's hard to think of a series as passť as Blake Edwards' Pink Panther comedies.

That there are any laughs at all is due almost entirely to Benigni. He's not remotely like Sellers, but he's a creative physical comedian.

Can you say 'cinematic atrocity' boys and girls? I was afraid you could. This has a place in the Sequel-For-Sequel's-Sake Hall of Infamy.

After hiring Benigni, it seems, Edwards flat ran out of good ideas.
