THE PINK PANTHER STRIKES AGAIN (1976 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Pink Panther Strikes Again runs the judgmental gauntlet line from great to good. A mixture of Peter Sellers’ charisma liberally laced with his inherent comedic abilities makes the movie a worthy watch. Inspector Clouseau’s ‘inevitable evasion from disaster’ makes Pink Panther films a reliable source for ‘just plain fun, sit back and enjoy the ride’ entertainment with the steady promise of ‘always easy on the mind, no work required here.’

Storyline

Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) once again makes tracks across Europe and parts of the Middle East while creating and leaving chaos in his wake.

Yes. While not on par with Peter Sellers’ final Pink Panther film, this movie stays true to the Pink Panther stamp.
