Elevator Pitch When the “Pink Panther” diamond is stolen Inspector Clouseau joins and international group of sleuths intent on solving the mystery. Despite their experise they make no discernable sign of progress, and are hamperd by Clouseau’s constant stupidity.
Content A whole series of completely inane scenes, intended to show that the inspector is clueless but lovable. He falls over, falls down appears on the pope’s balcony suitably attired, before falling over the edge, and more.
A View You’ve seen the cast list, and maybe heard of the original series of films. It’s got to be OK – not. I’m afraid this is one of my “watch at your peril” selection. It had no redeaming features, was hated by the critics, cost a fortune and lost most of it.
