Surprisingly fine-executed in its Parisien mystery, with an okay Clouseau by Martin that’s somewhat over-the-top but supported from falling by decent gags & comedic writing), the new Pink Panther reboot is serviceable popcorn comedic fare. 5.6/10.
Plot Synopsis: When the coach of a French soccer team is killed, his ring featuring the legendary Pink Panther diamond goes missing. Luckily, Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kevin Kline) has a plan: assign his most intelligent, most driven officers to track down the thieves in secret, while publicly assigning the bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin) as head of the case. Clouseau seems hopeless, until his various mistakes and misjudgments miraculously put him on the real killer’s trail.
Official CLC Score: 5.6/10
