Why, o why, o why?By alan pigott from Nottingham , 23 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Im a big Steve Martin fan and although I wasn't really looking forward to seeing him, Id thought he could possibly be ok. How wrong I was, this film is atrochious, Martin's Clouseau is more like Mr Magoo than the self-clumsy greatness Sellers' was. There is no consistantcy with clouseau's characteristics. All the accents and dodgy speach changes throughout (Kevin Kline's French accent totally vanishes after 10 mins)
Avoid this like the plague. The only enjoyment I had from this movie was it made me immediatly watch my pink panther dvd boxset.

Don't bother!By MaisieBlue (18 reviews) from Scarborough , 19 Sep 2009If you loved the original Peter Sellers Pink Panther, don't bother watching this. There was only one scene which I thought was funny (when he flipped his badge open and it landed in Kevin Kline's chest) and it certainly wasn't worth watching the whole film just for that one laugh. Throughout the film, I was constantly aware that this was Steve Martin playing Inspector Clouseau and that he wasn't a patch on Peter Sellers. Why bother reinventing the wheel?
Surprisingly goodBy a customer from Farnborough , 14 Jul 2009I was not sure what to expect and sure that I would compare it against Peter Sellers.
This film is actually quite funny and better than a lot of poor reviews have given.
I agree that Steve Martin can be very annoying but there are quite a few scenes that had me laughing out loud - the family included.
Don't dismiss it because it is a remake. It is actually very good - with a few dire exceptions.
