Movie Reviews

Just relax and enjoy this perfectly good comedy
Joseph P. Menta, Jr. | Philadelphia, PA USA | 02/12/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Better sight gags, more inspired comic sequences, and an actually clever mystery plot make "The Pink Panther 2" a more confident and more enjoyable film than its predecessor, which itself was perfectly watchable.

Yes, I guess it's pretty clear that I'm one of those in the minority who don't think it's sacrilege that Steve Martin is trying to follow in the footsteps of the great Peter Sellers. Two things should be remembered on this score: Peter Sellers was extremely talented, no doubt, but his Inspector Clouseau was, well... a bumbling detective character. In other words, it's not the kind of subtle, nuanced character that another talented comic actor can't legitimately take a crack at. Secondly, people forget that critics weren't head over heels in love with the original Sellers Clouseau movies, either, especially his last two or three. Moviegoers tended to like them, but critics mostly dismissed them in favor of Seller's more serious comic works, like "Dr. Strangelove", "Being There", etc. So let's all get a grip now.

Myself, I enjoy Martin's take on the character. Seller's Clouseau was a complete boob who only solved crimes and attained fame completely accidentally, which was admittedly interesting. Martin's take is also interesting, though: his Clouseau is a complete boob at most things, but also has some legitimate detective skills. Those two divergent aspects of the same character makes Martin's Clouseau fun to watch.

So, is the film a comic masterpiece? Nah. But "The Pink Panther 2" is a lot of fun, and definitely worth a trip to the theater."
Finally a thoroughly watchable Pink Panther film

"I grew up on the ol Blake Edwards's films- and was anxious to see what Steve Martin and Kevin Kline could do with the character's franchise in 2006. Pink Panther 2006 shows a very 'PC' Pink Panther- no more "little yellow friend"-giving a few spaced out chuckles- but overall giving us a very shallow harmless comedy mostly made up of juvenile innuendos. (without the required irreverence) Pink Panther 06' panders too much to tired slapstick and or fart and crotch hitting humor. They gave it a good try, but like the 7 Blake Edward films-flawed dated comedy mixed with elements of too juvenile and or too adult humor presented in an unbelievable fashion- At least the Edwards films, although hard to watch repeatedly, give you genuine (un-even) moments of hilarity. I too feel Sellers was a genius- although very bloated- and not half as funny as he thought he was. He would have been better suited with a director not infatauted with his comedy.

So with the under box office performing and announced "last" film-Pink Panther 2, how does this series go out...? Magnificently! First thing they did 100% right- replaced Kline with comedy peer
of Martin-John Cleese for Dreyfus- Also adding Molina, Tomlain, and others (Jeremy Irons)- Another thing that always benefits any Steve Martin is giving him a big writing chair. A gamble that paid off- was also letting newcomer Harald Zwart helm the directing. Replacing the surprising failure that Shawn Levy turned in with Pink Panther 1. Zwart seems to understand timing better than Edwards and Sellers. (if that is possible) But Pink Panther 2 easily trumps the admirable efforts of the Italian (Roberto Benigni) 93's 'Son of The Pink Panther' and 06's Steve Martin's first try in 'Pink Panther'...Now-they finally get it right!! They even bring back "my little yellow friend"... Giving us actual creative, irreverent and genuinely funny physical setups and payoffs=classic comedy. Along with good film pacing and surprisingly funny dialogue- they all finally make the classic character's their own- and give them an excellent homage all the same time. As far as
the trend of films containing 'qualified new talent trying to step into the shoes of classic old talent to revitalize franchises- Carell's 'Get Smart' 07 (replacing Don Adams) was easily the victor over Benigni's and Martin's tries with the Pink Panther franchise...But now with 08's Pink Panther 2 we finally have a evenly funny and watchable Pink Panther movie!!! In my opinion- This will rank up with Steve Martin's finest. (The Jerk, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, SNL, ect..) At 59 Steve Martin is still in 'his prime'....

The only unavoidable 'sad quality' of the film- is being painfully reminded of the age of an equal comedy legend actor/writer (no longer in his prime) John Cleese. So through no fault of his own the only true Dreyfus character remains Herbert Lom- with an honorable mention second to Cleese. Just because even a cameo from the legend that is rightfully Cleese- trumps any comedian today. Although perhaps when Martin is rounding 70, like Cleese is, we'll probably be giving him mulligan's and applause for his history any tidbit of effort.

This will be the only Pink Panther film I own and watch often."
Pink Panther 2: Great for Kids, Good for Adults
Robert D. Shull | Fairfield, OH | 03/01/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Pink Panther 2 will have you laughing for 92-minutes, and who doesn't need some laughter in their life?

Steve Martin reprises his role as Inspector Clouseau, the ne'er-do-well Inspector of the French police. As in the first film, the antics of Inspector Clouseau provide the comedic relief and carry the film from start to finish.

The cast did a respectable job bringing the story to life and the casting was perfect for the many characters of the "International dream team" in pursuit of the thief "The Tornado."

The slapstick comedy is what really worked in this film. What didn't work as well was the theme of political correctness seen throughout. After a while it became obvious and less funny.

This is a film that will probably appeal more to children than adult audiences. Nevertheless, if you want to get lost in a film, The Pink Panther 2 might just do the trick."
