Critic Reviews for Pink Panther 2
A highly awkward and tepid climax ends things with a whimper.
There are some beautifully constructed, elaborately inventive sequences of mayhem involving sight gags; then there are the scenes in between, when people talk. These are mostly disappointing.
This revisiting of Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau catapults Martin so far beyond the pale of authentic comedy that there can be no hope of return.
Steve Martin is back doing the fur-nay ack-saynt (now increasingly eun-fur-nay); and with this film he's very much channelling the spirit of the final Panther movies from the original series, when Peter Sellers had nothing to offer but despair.
Like an (even) less amusing Mr Bean, Martin now looks just that bit too old and creepy to be gurning through this predictable gamut of feeble slapstick.
Audience Reviews for Pink Panther 2
I dunno why I watched this I really don't, maybe cause I'm a sucker for Steve Martin and his classic looney old days, aaah so good. The first Panther was actually reasonably funny in places, the hamburger scene was hilarious, trying to park his little smart car, Martin and Reno in skin tight leotards creeping around haha This second venture is just a rehash of the first in everyway, all the jokes have been seen in the original Sellars films AND the original Martin version, they have basically just gone over old ground yet again, absolutely nothing original here. The prat falls, jokes and set ups are so predictable and childish its embarrassing, the only amusing part was at the start when Cleese finds out he is being overlooked for a position in the 'dream team' for 'Clouseau', don't bother.
Sequel to Pink Panther is just as bad as the first. Steve Martin's inspector Clouseau is unfunny and quite irritating, instead of being funny. I felt that this film missed the mark. This is an awful sequel to an already awful film. I really don't know why this was made. The first film was dreadful. The acting and story felt out of place, and nothing really fit. I had a hard time watching this. I had a hard time finishing it, and when it was over, I was relieved. This film sucked. Everything about it was bad. I usually like Steve Martin, but in this film along with the first film, it was terrible. Just bad. I can't grasp at how bad this one was. The humor is shallow, stupid and really doesn't feel right. The film sets the lowest standards for mediocrity. This is an awful sequel that has some of the most stupid moments that I have seen. I really don't get why this film was made. Steve Martin is painfully annoying in the role of Clouseau, and he makes the film not enjoyable whatsoever. If you've seen the first film, then you don't need to see this film. This sequel is stupid, badly conceived and above all, a waste of time. Avoid this film; you'll be glad you did. There's nothing to be had here except, tired irritating comedy. I've seen such a poorly made comedy since Dumb and Dumberer. The Pink Panther 2 fails to deliver good, genuine laughs.
As much as I love Steve Martin.... his Inspector Clouseau character is too much of a buffoon versus accidentally ingenious. More annoying than the Insp. Clouseau he could portray in a more clever way. John Cleese offers the only really brilliant comedic performance.
