The Pink Panther Strikes Again

The Pink Panther Strikes Again

Blake Edwards (1976)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Peter Sellers's hilarious portrayal of the bungling Inspector Clouseau holds together this fourth entry in the series. There is a shortage of inspiration here, but Herbert Lom gives another stalwart performance as the long-suffering Inspector Dreyfus. The critics were divided as some thought that Dreyfus's increasingly desperate attempts to bump off the incompetent Clouseau were a riot of bawdy humour and inspired slapstick, while others considered the film to be a repetitive rehash in which the same gag was worked to death without ever really being funny. The box-office evidence seems to suggest that the public voted with the "pro" lobby.


Inspector Clouseau fends off a murder syndicate led by his former police chief Dreyfus, who has been driven insane by his hatred for the bungling detective. However, doing away with the lucky lawman proves harder than anticipated - even for the world's best assassins. Comedy sequel, starring Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom, Lesley-Anne Down, Burt Kwouk and Leonard Rossiter.
