Now, of all the Parisian Police Force’s detectives, the deceitful Chief Inspector, Dreyfus, decides to appoint the maladroit investigator, Jacques Clouseau, to this difficult and mysterious case, knowing that the eccentric gendarme is way out of his depth. Does Dreyfus have a hidden agenda? Can France’s clueless and most bumbling officer of the law piece together the scarce leads to pull off a surprising success?
Plot: When the coach of the France soccer team is killed by a poisoned dart in the stadium in the end of a game, and his expensive and huge ring with the diamond Pink Panther disappears, the ambitious Chief Inspector Dreyfus assigns the worst police inspector Jacques Clouseau to the case.

Enjoyable, but not fantastic.
This movie unfolds slowly & tentatively, but picks up speed as it progresses…or maybe I was just too concerned with Steve Martin’s interpretation of Inspector Clouseau, and I finally relaxed about halfway through the film. Well, when you’re used to seeing Peter Sellers as Clouseau, it’s just difficult to view anyone else in that role. But, true to the character, Steve Martin does make it his own, and actually pulls it off pretty effectively. He has always been good with physical humor, and this film is no exception.
Similarly, its difficult to adjust to seeing Kevin Kline as Inspector Dreyfus. Since this movie is a prequel, I can assume that Clouseau has yet to get completely under his skin. It was typical Kevin Kline … dry, with a weak french accent. I was mildly disappointed because I really enjoyed his french character & accent in French Kiss several years ago.
The first few gags were very short-sided and fell flat, but once Clouseau starts looking for clues the slapstick works a little better & the film gets more enjoyable. Many of the gags are predictable (as is the plot), but what really makes them work is Martin’s reactions (which I really think was the key to Peter Seller’s portrayal as well).
This film was very tame, with only subtle innuendoes that most youngsters aren’t likely to grasp. The audience appeared to laugh at least as much as I did. If you don’t expect too much, this movie will be fun; if you expect too much, you’re likely to be disappointed.
A Funeral Of Sorts
I knew, of course I knew it couldn’t really be anything like the original – The word original in itself tells you something. But I went because I love and respect Steve Martin and thought that perhaps he had some ace up his sleeve and was going to delight and surprise everybody. Stupid me, really. But I couldn’t possibly have imagine that the movie was going to be the moronic disaster it turned out to be. Not a moment of real comedy, not a moment! Leave poor Clouseau in peace! Invent something new! Greed, I imagine is at the center of it all. The famous franchise syndrome. Let’s beat the whole thing to death, without realizing that it’s been dead now for quite some time. The scenes between Kevin Kline and Steve Martin should have been classic (They were funnier in Grand Canyon) instead a sad forced unconvincing attempt to justify their pay checks. I’m totally disappointed and depressed.
