Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Filled with brilliant lunacy and over-the-top comedic flourishes, The Pink Panther Strikes Again delivers the absurd goods for which the series is known. Played even broader than its predecessors, Strikes Again finds Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) in the super-spy role pitted against his incredibly evil nemesis Dreyfus (Herbert Lom. In one wacky moment after the next, Sellers throws subtlety out the window to match the film's exaggerated tone -- a tactic well-suited for delivering even more immediate laughs from the bumbling hero. The slo-mo kung fu scene is unbelievably funny, as are the moments in the interrogation scene, which border on Clouseau's best. As far as the supporting cast, Lom hams it up in his wide-eyed Bond villain role, while Lesley-Anne Down makes the screen sizzle every time her Russian minx character appears. With a cartoon-like bouncy feel to it, The Pink Panther Strikes Again is the perfect idiocy for the slapstick soul.

    THIS IS CLASSIC SELLERS - YOU CAN'T FIND FUNNIER THAN THIS!!!!

    I feel this is pure escapism comedy by a master comic. The comics today should learn from a man who didn't need profanity in order to be funny. He relied only on his ability to act and assume the character of ''Closeau'', the bumbling detective, and nemesis of his former boss Dreyfuss. In my opinion this is the funniest of the ''Pink Panther' series. I would give this movie 3 1/2 stars out of 4 stars on just how much I enjoy it 27 years after the first time that I saw this. The jokes are still fresh and the sight gags still work. What more can you ask?
