Genre: Comedy, Crime
Rating: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested)
Runtime: 103 minutes
Peter Sellers's third go-around as the prideful but bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau is funny enough, but this 1975 Blake Edwards revival of the Sellers-Clouseau connection is a little weak in comparison to predecessors The Pink Panther and A Shot in the Dark (both made in 1964). Costar Christopher Plummer actually gets some of the most interesting screen time as a retired cat burglar whom Clouseau accuses of getting back into the business. (If it sounds like there might be a To Catch a Thief vibe mixed in here, you're right.) Herbert Lom is hilarious as Clouseau's psychologically eroding boss, and Clouseau's ritualistic collisions with valet Cato (Burt Kwouk) are great examples of Edwards's delicious comic timing. --Tom Keogh
What do you suppose they will call the crater, huh? The Dreyfus Ditch?
There shall be no crater.
No crater? But I want a crater! I want wreckage, twisted metal. Something the world will not forget!
They won't forget today.
They won't? Wonderful. I have to tinkle again. Don't do anything till I get back.
There is someone in this room who knows more about the murder than he is telling.
What was that you said?
I said "murder".
I-I-I don't know, y-you said "murder".
I said murder? *You* said murder!
No, I said murder because *You* said murder.
*I* said murder?
