The Pink Panther Strikes Again

BBBB

(out of 5)


Clouseau is back, and ‘s Inspector Dreyfus is determined to get rid of him once again. Having been driven into a mental institution by his hatred for the bumbling detective, Dreyfus (Lom) escapes and tries to kill Clouseau () himself.  When that doesn’t work, he figures the next best thing is to build a doomsday machine and hold the world hostage unless someone gives in to his demand and kills the Inspector for him. Blake Edwards, whose sense of humour is unparalleled in his best comedic moments, contributes another great selection of comic hijinks and slapstick mayhem, the best of which are naturally when Clouseau gets to sparring with his ever-faithful housekeeper Cato ().   is lovely as a hired assassin who ends up finding our goofy Frenchman completely irresistible.
