I know some people won't like this movie, but I found it entertaining nonetheless. Ted Wass was good as a bumbling detective from the USA, and of course Herbert Lom was great as usual. The guests appearances through out the movie were also nice. I would recommend the movie just for them. Of course the ghost of Peter Sellers lives on and he was sorely missed.10 out of 10. Why? Don't ask just enjoy the movie.
Somewhat Better than 'Trail' (by Hollywood_Yoda)
After watching the predecessor of this film, I can see that the series has found new life where it once lay dieing just a year before. Now, we know that Clouseau is missing, but is he dead? That is the question they asked themselves. Ted Wass comes aboard in this sequel, and somehow, he makes it work. Reminding us that Clouseau may be gone, but people just like him are still bumbling fools.Sent on an assignment from Dreyfus, the Inspector from new York tries everything he knows to find Clouseau. Eureka!! Clouseau is alive, or is he? Roger Moore guest stars as an altered Clouseau, who we find <more>
out, might just be the thief of the Pink Panther diamond from "Trail of the Pink Panther." A horrible end to Clouseau's name in pop culture. The film gets 9 of 10. Will Pink Panther live on? Time will tell.
For those who consider the Pink Panther films only watchable for Peter Sellers' performance as Inspector Clouseau, the series could be considered over with "Revenge of the Pink Panther." For those who love the Pink Panther brand of humor and want to see the full extension of the story line, "Curse of the Pink Panther" is worth a look.True, without Peter Sellers this movie doesn't feel quite authentic, but it makes an interesting epilogue to the series, picking up where the wafer-thin plot of "Trail of the Pink Panther" left off.Glad that Clouseau is gone <more>
but wanting to appear like he's doing his best to find the missing Inspector, Chief Dreyfus Herbert Lom searches for the worst possible detective to put on his old foe's tracks. He settles for Sgt. Clifton Sleigh a young Ted Wass , a bumbling NYPD officer who can't understand why everyone thinks he's somehow related to Jacques Clouseau.While plenty of the worn-out routines from previous movies are repeated here, there are certainly some new bits, and Wass' likable character breathes some freshness, if only a little bit, into the film. Still, while Peter Sellers is missed, his character is missed even more. The studio could have counted its losses and found a new Clouseau and a new director to bring new blood to the franchise. Instead, the events of the previous films, including the little inconsistencies between movies, are brought to a head as Clouseau's disappearance and the Pink Panther diamond's theft come together in one mangled conspiracy theory. This, sadly, taints the simplicity of the individual films.Certain elements of the classics are here, including an exotic babe Leslie Ash and David Niven in his final film role. Appropriate, since this was originally supposed to be his franchise.It turns out in the end that Clouseau has had plastic surgery in order to look like Roger Moore, played by Roger Moore. The scene where Moore and Wass meet is priceless, providing a chance for "Clouseau" and "Sleigh" to see who the bigger buffoon is in a hilarious game of comical oneupmanship.Not as funny as any of the Peter Sellers films by a long shot, but a novelty among the series and a worthwhile comedy for fans of this comedy-mystery series.
I believe that this effort was very good considering that the star of the series did not appear in it due to his passing Ted Wass almost grows into a Clousseau like character as the movie goes on, yes we miss the horribly funny accent and antics of Sellers, but we watch movies like this for the visual comedy and there is plenty of that, And of course what you tune into any "panther" movie to see it how does Dreyfuss get shot, blown up or nearly killed, and Sleigh does his best at accidentally taking Dreyfuss to the edge of Insanity just like Clousseau always did. The overall Plot <more>
is actually kind of clever, and keeps you wondering how it can possibly unfold knowing that Sellers character is not available...those who do not like this film, I believe are of the "you can't replace Sellers' "clousseau" ilk. that may be true, but give the master of adult comedy "Edwards " a chance , open your mind and be entertained
