"Let me bring you up to speed. We know nothing. Now you are up to speed." Thus is the bumbling, deadpan persona of Inspector Clouseau, as re-invented by Steve Martin, best summed up. In this sequel to the 2006 remake of the classic Peter Sellers films, Martin gets crisper direction and a smarter script than he did the first time out. Martin, to his great credit, has never been afraid to make himself look foolish or to take pratfalls--and if the viewer finds these remakes to be less satirical than the original Sellers films, he will still be letting our great laughs and chuckles through the course of the film. And what a cast! Martin is joined by John Cleese, Jeremy Irons, Lily Tomlin, Jean Reno, Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai, Emily Mortimer, Alfred Molina, and Andy Garcia--all of whom seem to be having a delightful romp--a feeling that’s contagious. The story picks up where the last film ended, with Clouseau’s having saved the precious Pink Panther diamond in Paris. Since then, Clouseau has been reassigned to parking-ticket duty, to keep him off the frayed nerves of Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Cleese). But a band of international thieves is wreaking havoc on the world’s treasures, and, before you can sayminkey, the priceless Pink Panther goes missing, again. If plot’s a bit predictable, it’s no matter, since thephunis in the haplessness of Clouseau and the rings of nuclear fallout that surround him. And you may never pronouncehamburgerthe same way.Evair!--A.T. Hurley

Inspector Clouseau joins the Dream Team, an international team made up of the most respected investigator's, to stop a theif from stealing the precious Pink Panther gem.     This movie cracked me up! It is hilarious. I don't normally watch a movie more than once, but I could watch this one all the time.

Pink Panther, since the passing of Peter Sellers, no it hasn't been the same. Yes it is absolutely a formula movie. There are generally around 7 or 8 jokes evenly spread through the movie. Although Sellers was a much better Clouseau; the formula was pretty much the same.     So Steve Martin continues the formula. Does a workman job of being Clouseau, and has some darn funny moments in this film. Yes, it's a guilty pleasure (just like the originals). If you liked the first Steve …

Pros: Aishwarya Rai, the second-most beautiful woman in the world!      Cons: Feels forced sometimes      The Bottom Line: Blah.      My favorite joke in The Pink Panther 2 was the one about the French detectives hiring a counselor to teach the detectives how to be politically correct. This is the most outright satirical joke in The Pink Panther 2. It comes off like a shot at the PC police by a screenwriter who is getting somewhat annoyed …
