Dyan Cannon is rather dull in a dull role, and is not as effective a foil as I recall Catherine Schell and Capucine to have been in earlier films.

the most entertaining of the first five in the series .

Uneven it is, but also entertaining .

A bit of an improvement over the last Panther film--and the last Panther film worth watching .

"Revenge of the Pink Panther" was a terrific (and at the time, unexpected) sendoff for Sellers.

although i don't think this is the funniest of the series i have watched up to this point(#5),i do think it is the most entertaining,and the most well paced.

All of his music carries the film where it may have other-wised dragged.

Uneven, but entertaining .

Poorly acted with a meandering plot and mumbled dialogue, the central joke of Clouseau's incompetence misfiring scene after scene with bad sight gags and predictably tiresome set pieces.

The plot is more intense, with mafia and drug people, who think, along with everyone else, that Clouseau is dead because no one realizes that an attempted hit has misfired.

The plot is a bit of a less though, and while I liked the music in general some of it got a little repetitive or interfered too much in some scenes.

so , so , so , boring .

Having seen an earlier Clouseau film and having been surprised at how funny it was I thought that this might be worth a look but I'm afraid it was incoherent and boring.

Unbearable.

Entertaining last proper Peter Sellers Pink Panther appearance .

One of the worst movies ever.

After four amazing movies at last Inspector Clouseau reachs the end, he was the most stupid, moron, fool and lucky guy ever had, his unintended victim was the Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus gone mad for good, always interned at insane asylum due the Clouseau's mish-mash, this time after bomb attack Clouseau left for dead, then Inspector Charles takes over the drug traffiking's case, but both are close everywhere, despite the movie was a physical comedy and a bit dated for now, it was really enjoyable when come out Inspector Clouseau & Charles whose worthwhile to watch, pay attention in the old and good actor Paul Stewart as Mob's chief Scallini and the funniest scenes on New Chinese ladies of Easy Virtue.

It's also horribly predictable; you see a cake in the scene, you know it's going in someones face, and if you see a large, nice-looking table, you know someones going through it.

The movie is kind of boring whenever the three isn't on screen.

The bad puns and the lame attempts to make fun of different situations made the film unbearable.

This is probably a fair assessment, although I wouldn't say there is a lot in it, as while this is clearly an uneven comedy, the other 70's entries are too and this one still has some good scenes and is overall quite an enjoyable watch.

Webber, as the villain here, seems very wimpy and boring.

Sellers is a little wearing in this film, unlike in the earlier installments I have seen; his character, if not quite past its sell-by date, is certainly boringly and predictably used here.

The results are some occasionally amusing moments (Clouseau chokes on the cotton stuffed into his mouth) and some pointless plot stretching, this time in Hong Kong so no rickshaw gag can go unpulled.

Naturally Sellers trips into every situation and the results are once again hilarious and tedious at the same time.

There are pointless comedic scenes, like one with Clouseau disguised as a "salty Swedish sea dog" that feels like an outtake, and pointless serious scenes, like when an assassin is hired to kill several other assassins in order to prove his worth.

The first half of the movie is definitely funnier then the second, and it does perhaps tail of a little, but it is still a hugely enjoyable watch, with some super funny moments, who could forget Sellers's godfather?

Clouseau, now wearing a dress is arrested and dragged off to a lunatic asylum while his erstwhile boss, Chief Inspector Dreyfus is being released to investigate his murder.

Also there is the odd bit of slow pacing.

The film is fast paced, funny, has action and Peter Sellers is excellent in his role.
