PG Certificate


Our Score
There are so many comedy turns hanging from a slender plotline in this immoderate helping of Inspector Clouseau from Peter Sellers that it tends to sag in places. But there are still plenty of laughs to be had as Clouseau goes on the trail of drug smugglers, taking his boss, Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom), beyond the end of his tether. Sellers is well supported by Dyan Cannon, as a drug dealer's girlfriend, and by Burt Kwouk, as the valet whose constant "jumping" of Clouseau is among the film's highlights. This may lack the coherence of the previous films, but if you accept this as just a vehicle for Sellers's comic genius you won't be disappointed.


Bumbling Inspector Clouseau's adventures seem to have come to an end when he is mistakenly declared dead. However, the disaster-prone detective is in fact alive and well, and takes advantage of the situation to launch an undercover investigation into his own murder, adopting a variety of cunning disguises. Comedy sequel, starring Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom, Burt Kwouk and Dyan Cannon.
