USA / English
"Get a clue! "Loosely based on the 1964 Peter Sellers original film, where the detective must solve the murder of a famous soccer coach and find out who stole the infamous Pink Panther diamond.
A Funeral Of Sorts
I knew, of course I knew it couldn't really be anything like the
original - The word original in itself tells you something. But I went
because I love and respect Steve Martin and thought that perhaps he had
some ace up his sleeve and was going to delight and surprise everybody.
Stupid me, really. But I couldn't possibly have imagine that the movie
was going to be the moronic disaster it turned out to be. Not a moment
of real comedy, not a moment! Leave poor Clouseau in peace! Invent
something new! Greed, I imagine is at the center of it all. The famous
franchise syndrome. Let's beat the whole thing to death, without
realizing that it's been dead now for quite some time. The scenes
between Kevin Kline and Steve Martin should have been classic (They
were funnier in Grand Canyon) instead a sad forced unconvincing attempt
to justify their pay checks. I'm totally disappointed and depressed.
