    Steve Martin has fun with The Pink Panther but there will always only be one Inspector Clouseau - Peter Sellers!

    Steve Martin's The Pink Panther is a funny and enjoyable film if one sees it as a spoof on the original Pink Panther rather than a re-make. Peter Sellers WAS Inspector Clouseau. He so throughly made the part his own that no one will ever be able to take it away.<BR/><BR/>Steve Martin doesn't even really seem to try! What Martin does is what he does best. He brings his own slapstick brand of comedy to the part and one has a sense that he is simply having fun PRETENDING to be the Inspector rather than actually BEING the Inspector.<BR/><BR/>Some of the sight gags are good but it is Martin's ability to wring halarity out of the mundane that makes this film worth watching. Look for the scene where the Inspector is taking English lessons from an instructor so that he will blend in when he travels to the United States. Martin is able to effortlessly turn a simple, boring English lesson into something so halarious that the movie is worth seeing just for that scene. One can watch the scene over and over and never tire from the outrageousness of Martin's performance.<BR/><BR/>Martin's The Pink Panther is not his best film and it doesn't come close to the genius of Peter Seller's version but it is funny - halarious at times - and well worth the re-visit to one of films all time favorite characters.

    Jean Reno Rules

    As always, a stellar performance by Jean Reno, it's too bad he is mentioned so far down the line. Beyonce Knowles does her best to act, but not surprisingly fails miserably. Steve Martin has a few funny moments but for the most part it is Jean Reno that unintentionally steals the scene with either just a look or a good one liner.
