Good to watch an appropriate comedy movie because the comedy movies these days contain a lot of bad words and a loooooot of sexual scenes and they aren't funny anyway. This movie is funny and for family too. Steve Martin did a great job with the French accent and to act like a Smart-Dumb cub. I was excited to watch Beyoncé acting but after watching the movie I think that she is better at singing. I give this movie 6/10 and I recommend it for everyone.

A very funny and lighthearted film! Amburger! The scene where Inspector Clouseau discovers the American hamburger is the best part.

I'd give this a million stars if i could! It is the perfect combo of mystery, romance, and comedy. and there's no way they could have gotten a better actor for Inspector Clouseau than Steve Martin. The guy's HILARIOUS!!!!! Juxtaposed with the second one especially, this will keep you laughing and giggling even after 100 re-runs!

avoided it in the theatres cause I hate remakes. Friend recommended it saying that it was hilarious. Bad remake of the orginial. Peter Sellers is still the best Inspector around. When they have to resort to fart/pull my finger type humour you know the film has gone down hill. Needless to say am rethinking my friendship with the person that recommended it.

Skip It - Steve Martin is no Peter Sellers. Having said that; what's the point. The timing is completely off.

Mr. Clouseau is back and more hysterical than ever!

This is a bad-awful movie - totally inept in both presentation and style.

Two of my favourite comedic actors: Steve Martin (Planes Trains and Automobiles; The Jerk; Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid; My Blue Heaven; Rotten Dirty Scoundrels; Parenthood; Father of the Bride I & II; Bringing Down the House... I could go on and on...) and Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda; Soapdish; Dave; French Kiss; In and Out) are totally wasted!

And I don't mean wasted as in "drunk"... although they might as well have been, to mask the self-inflicted pain that surely must have surfaced when they viewed the early rushes of this film - let alone the pain they inflicted on unsuspecting audiences that had come to expect more from these two usually very wild and crazy guys.
I mean... I like Steve Martin... he usually makes me laugh - but he is no Inspector Jacques Clouseau!
That honour is permanently enshrined in Hollywood lore in the name of the incredible and indefatigable great Peter Sellers!
And Shawn Levy can't touch Blake Edwards, either, as a director.
Edwards mastered the delivery of light-hearted comedy with an ironic twist that's engendered in the Pink Panther franchise of old.
Far be it for Levy to try to mirror Edwards' magical touch.

Instead, he butchers the art of subtlety with his ham-fisted approach to eliciting laughs from an unwitting public.

Even poor Steve Martin is reduced to very badly imitating the confluence of tongue and teeth to upper mouth to get out the word "rrrrroom".. while trying to make it sound even remotely similar to Peter Sellers' masterful version: "errrruuummm!"!!
All-in-all... if you want to really see the difference between this weak-kneed 21st century version of The Pink Panther and the classic Pink Panther franchise pieces - start with the 1963 gem with the same name (The Pink Panther) which was the first movie starring Peter Sellers as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau.

Better still make it a double bill and rent out "A Shot in the Dark" (1964) at the same time because Sellers just excels in his portrayal of Clouseau in that one too! The scenes at the nudist colony with the very voluptuous Elke Sommer is certain to get a rise out of you!

You need go no farther (but if you really have an appetite for laughter, try any or all the rest!) to see the drastic difference between the great comedy of old versus the new nonsenxe.

As for this modern day Steve Martin version... that has unfortunately spawned another replicate of its awful self - Pink Panther 2, now playing at Encore Oakville Mews Cinema... the best thing I can say about it is: Beyonce!
