The Curse of the Pink Panther

Blake Edwards (1983)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Without any original input from Peter Sellers, this seventh instalment in Blake Edwards's comedy series produces negligible humour. The search for the amiable, but idiotic, Inspector Clouseau wavers when the inspector's vindictive boss (Herbert Lom) programmes the computer to select the world's worst detective for the job. The bumbling Ted Wass is chosen and sets about interviewing characters from previous movies, among them David Niven, Capucine and Robert Wagner, and their reveries provide the excuse for out-takes from the previous Pink Panther films. This was Niven's last film; what a pity he had to go like this.


Inspector Clouseau vanishes without trace and another detective must be chosen to solve the mystery of his disappearance. Glad to be rid of the bane of his existence, Clouseau's long-suffering boss makes sure an even more inept investigator gets the job. Comedy, starring Herbert Lom, Ted Wass, Joanna Lumley, David Niven and Robert Wagner.
