    A graceless, embarrassing effort. show more

    Transforming Clouseau's perennial nemesis into a more urbane smoothie, Kevin Kline delivers like a pro. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This slapdash farce, arriving three decades after Sellers last inhabited the role, sustains a baseline of good will that often spikes into delight at Mr. Martin's beguiling nonsense. show more

    Alas, this joyless affair doesn't have a clou. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    This, the 10th and worst-written entry in the series, would have been better if it had followed Dreyfuss instead of Clouseau, or if Kline had been cast as Clouseau instead of Martin. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Even with the inspired choice of Steve Martin in the Clouseau role, this "Panther" picture is more bumbling and fumbling than the blissfully oblivious, accident-prone Inspector. show more

    This one will make you laugh early and often, and send you out of the theater in a cheerful mood. show more

    This Pink Panther really doesn't have to achieve the heights of the original; it just has to be funny on its own terms. But it pales there too. Kline, a master of comic hypocrisy, deserves more screen time, Emily Mortimer is wasted as Clouseau's adoring assistant Nicole and Knowles is over indulged as Xania. show more

    Occasionally works and has a handful of great moments. show more

    Suffice to say that Shawn Levy, director of the "Cheaper by the Dozen" movies, is no Blake Edwards; for every finely tuned slapstick fillip, there's a ton of messy, family-friendly buffoonery. show more

    The Pink Panther is a hilarious comedy starring Steve Martin as the funny Professor Jock Clouseau. He is on one of the biggest cases of all time and with a million laughs along the way it is one of my favorite movies.
