Amid much publicity, the detective dream team follows leads, trying to discover the identity and whereabouts of The Tornado. Clouseau falls in love with his assistant Nicole, but he is too shy and awkward to tell her what he feels.
After much chaos, missed chances and slapstick situations, Clouseau solves the case when his fellow detectives fail.
PINK PANTHER 2 is made for comedy and slapstick fans. The plot is a bit thin but serves as an opportunity for Clouseau to bumble from one situation to another. Martin is very strong as Clouseau and seems to be comfortable in the role this time around. From maligning the English language with his French accent to his inadvertent disasters, the movie is mostly about watching Clouseau go from one comedic beat to another.
The production values are excellent and the ensemble cast, highlighted by Andy Garcia, brings levity to the situations.
PINK PANTHER 2 has a few profanities and slapstick violence, but otherwise is surprisingly clean. The romance between Clouseau and Nicole ends in marriage and not as a one-night stand. Meanwhile, Clouseau’s sidekick, Ponton, learns that marriage is more important than his job.
For movie lovers who like slapstick PINK PANTHER 2 is a lovable movie filled with many laughs.
