Did You Know?
Steve Martin immediately accepted to reprise his role for this sequel because of his love of the character and the opportunity to do very physical, burlesque comedy.
When Clouseau jumps from the globe to the chandelier, the face of Steve Martin's stunt double is visible.
Insp. Jacques Clouseau:
Let me bring you up to speed… We know nothing. You are now up to speed.
Stupid, predictable…but still funny !
Even though I knew the movie had been panned by the critics, I still
agreed to go along with my friends to watch it. As the credits rolled
in the end, I sat wondering what were the critics expecting from the
Of course the plot is stupid, the end is predictable. But the movie
delivers what every comedy intends to deliver…lots of good laughs !
If the reviewers were expecting a thought provoking plot, Oscar winning
performances, or a great achievement in "moving image"…perhaps they
bought the wrong movie ticket. Also, I have not seen the original Peter
Sellers movie. Looks like every Peter Sellers fan hates the new series.
But I really don't see why shouldn't I enjoy the jokes in Pink Panther
2 just because Peter Sellers was funnier.
This may not be the funniest movie of the year. But its 1.5 hours well
enjoyed ! Don't get swayed by the critics…go and have fun in this
