Movie Reviews

My favorite Pink Panther film
08/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Why do so many people hate this movie? If you ask any Panther fan what their favorite movie is, they will almost automatically say "The Pink Panther Strikes Again". That film's plot was ludicrous and at the end, Dreyfuss supposedly evaporated, but ended up acting in three more Panther films. "Revenge" has a very believable plot and Sellers is giving his best slapstick. Look for the "Salty Sea Dog" and "Godfather" scenes, they're histerical. If you are reluctant of buying this DVD in the series because someone told you it wasn't a good film, I'd think again............."
All Time Favorite

"As a child, I grew up on the Pink Panther movies and this one is my all time favorite. From the very beginning of the movie to the very end I am in constant stitches. My favorite scene has to be when Clouseau comes home from a failed attempt on his life and is looking for Kato as well as when he tries to take his car silver hornet out. I personally consider this film Peter Seller's best work in the entire Pink Panther series. I can't imagine Hollywood attempt to do a modern version of the Pink Panther. Peter Sellers was and is Inspector Clouseau."
Superb, just not quite that relentless

""Revenge" is one of the better entries in the collection of "Pink Panther" comedies, featuring Peter Sellers as the hapless Jacques Clouseau (who we learn has survived "16 assassination attempts, including 2 from his own boss"). The plot is typically flimsy as Clouseau is apparently killed by a businessman with mafia connections, before investigating his own death and turning up in Hong Kong for the showdown. However, the plot is not the important thing here.What is important is the quality performances given by everyone involved. Sellers is at his bumbling best, along with Kwouk as Cato (the Chinese manservant who always seems to be on the receiving end of Clouseau's slapstick). Herbert Lom's Dreyfus - apparently cured upon hearing of Clouseau's death - is not given as much airtime as he deserves, but then again he isn't the emphasis of the film either.It is always hard to pick highlights of a "Pink Panther" film, everyone will have their own favorite pieces. Here are some of my highlights, both from the action and dialogue departments:ACTIONClouseau being attacked by a bondage mistress in his own home - turned into a "Chinese nookie facory" after his death.Cato's glasses making him knock into everything possible in the hotel in Hong Kong.Clouseau and Cato chasing each other up and down the stairs while covered in plaster and paint.Clouseau attempting to answer the phone after this chase and falling down a hole - again.The appearance of Clouseau - disguised as a priest - at his own funeral, making Dreyfus pitch into the grave.The finale in Hong Kong and its aftermath.DIALOGUEDyan Cannon and Sellers upon entering her apartment in the rain: "My God!", "Mine too".Sellers to the "beautiful woman" he has just picked up: "Do you mean to say that you do carry a gurn?"Sellers' excuse for blowing a huge trumpet at midnight: "I'm trying to save my life, madam""Gesundheit", "I know that, I know that"Clouseau's ridiculous impression of a mafia don."Do you mean to say that he killed a roving transvestite to impress his godfather?""Now we are getting somewhere, who is this Phillippe" (it turns out to be the first name of the man they were talking about)."I knew that you knew that I knew that"."It is a little overdue for a service..."In short, a worthy inclusion in the "Pink Panther" canon. Missing the fifth star because the humor is not quite so relentless as in the best ones - a few scenes manage to bog it down."
Familar stuff, but twisted enough to make it a lot of fun
Craig Matteson | Ann Arbor, MI | 01/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is really the last of the Clouseau films. The others were cobbled together after Sellers' death and are not as enjoyable. This film is actually quite fresh and very enjoyable. Not only are the regulars in attendance, we get to meet the people who provide Clouseau with his fabulously ridiculous disguises. It turns out that there is a store that provides them and is owned by one Professor Auguste Balls (done to a T by the remarkable Graham Stark).

In this film, Robert Webber plays Phillipe Douvier, who is a gangster that his peers think is losing his edge. So, he kills Clouseau as a demonstration that he is still a powerful man. Well, everyone thinks he has killed Clouseau and that leads to most of the delightful humor in the film. While the familiar elements of Dreyfus and Kato are here, everything is twisted pretty hard and kept fresh even though they are familiar. We get to find out more about Kato and what he turns to once he thinks Clouseau is gone. Amazing stuff.

Dyan Cannon, at her most stunning, plays Simone Legree (ho, ho, ho) who is Douvier's mistress / secretary. The mighty Dourvier is afraid of his wife who demands that he end his relationship with Simone which, of course, makes Simone angry and reckless. Douvier intends to have her killed and she is inadvertently saved by the already deceased Clouseau. Fireworks ensue. When you get all this plus an inflatable parrot, how can you go wrong?"
