“ In most of the films, Clouseau shows up once every twenty minutes or so, to interrupt the flow of a dismal, confusing plotline with some hilarious schtick.
“ It's zanier, fresher, and seems more like a wild spoof in the vein of "Austin Powers" rather than an outdated, unfunny bore like (I find) the first film.
“ For me, this movie is enjoyable because it's a total parody of the classic Bond films.
“ Though not A SHOT IN THE DARK, this is one of the funnier outings in the entertaining, if totally uneven PINK PANTHER series.
“ A truly hilarious entry into the "Pink Panther" series, absolutely worth watching.
“ But it does have its share of lulls, too, and some overly predictable sight gags that aren't likely to impress even the kids.
“ How unfortunate then that once more as Clouseau, Peter Sellers is absolutely stunning.
“ Within minutes Clouseau's bumbling antics undo three years of intense psycho therapy and Dreyfus flies into a murderous rage.
“ It is also the most enjoyable, definitely my favourite.
“ Along with an endlessly repeated gag involving Clouseau at a octoberfest, a lot of predictable humor looking as though it was torn straight out of Looney Tunes or out of a episode of Justice League and the ridiculous ending involving a lot of cheap special effects, this is by far the low point in the series.
“ The routine with Clouseau and Cato fighting starts to become a bit tiresome.
“ This is a pretty entertaining movie and I'm now kind of interested in seeing the remake.
“ The jokes never go on too long, but are drawn out just enough to make each silly antic worthwhile and everything from smile inducing amusing, to laugh out loud hilarious.
“ The movie gets entertaining and hilarious moments here and there .
“ Lower character development is acceptable under the circumstances, and the movie starts off well with a rousing scene between Cato and Clouseau, abstractly involving Dreyfus.
“ But it is hugely enjoyable, thanks to some truly funny and clever gags and Peter Sellers on hilarious form as Clousseau.
“ Hilarious at times, but truthfully dull at other intervals.
“ However, despite this, the film is actually quite entertaining, which is why I give it nine stars out of ten.
“ The drawbridge is a slow long burn and a pure comedic turn.
“ I admit that the last few parts with Lesley-Ann Down are dull.
“There's a lot of verbal comedy too in the Blake Edwards/Frank Waldman screenplay, which is of a middling quality and gets a little tiresome at times.
“ Indeed, the film comes across as a series of pretty good sketches with Cluseau that are stitched together with bits of pointless and poorly written filler in-between.
“ For the comedy and the story itself is actually quite lame and predictable.
“ it's a shame, the middle of the film, hasn't the level and rhythm of the rest, is a little boring.
“ It was just dumb, as opposed to a slow build in 'Return'.
“ This release is the fourth part of Closeau series and an enjoyable comedy starred by the great Peter Sellers as the inept and bungler Inspector of the French Surete .
“ This fifth "Pink Panther" entry is a practically plotless collection of gags.
“it was fairly fast paced,and amusing.
