The Pink Panther DVD Review

Steve Martin and Beyonce star in the re-make of the classic flick, The Pink Panther. Steve plays the bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau who has been brought in to help solve the murder of famous soccer coach and the theft of a huge pink diamond - AKA, The Pink Panther! Find out if this whodunit tale is worth checking out right here.

The Pink Panther - Slap-stick Story

Inspector Clouseau isn't the brightest police officer in France. In fact, he's not the brightest police officer anywhere. He's a simple man who tends to cause a lot more trouble than he solves. So why has he been chosen to head such a high profile murder investigation? Well, Chief Inspector Dreyfus (played by Kevin Kline) is determined to win the Medal of Honor this year and he figures if Clouseau makes a fool of himself, he can swoop in and save the day. Think his plan will work?

The Pink Panther - A Crying Shame

The original Pink Panther movies are full of funny situations, so you would assume that this new re-make would be just as funny. Not so much. Most of the jokes will have you rolling your eyes or cringing more than laughing. All of the silly jokes are drawn out to the point where it makes the viewer uncomfortable. How many times can Inspector Clouseau hit parked cars with his Mini Cooper before he finally parks it? Does he have to attack curtains in an attempt to see if the place is bugged every time he enters a room? Even the moderately funny parts aren't really that funny.

The Pink Panther - DVD Features

If you can't get enough of the Pink Panther's hijinks, check out the 11 deleted and extended scenes that didn't make the movie. The DVD also features the music video for Beyonce's Check On It and an exclusive Beyonce performance. It also packs in an alternate opening sequence and three Pink Panther "featurettes."

The Pink Panther - Bottom Line

Sure, Steve Martin sounds funny with his exaggerated French accent, Beyonce looks beautiful as always and there are one or two parts that are mildly funny - but that's not enough to hold a two-hour movie together. Unless you're big into silly, slap-stick humor (and bad slap-stick at that), you're better off to rent one of the original Pink Panther movies than check this one out.

Is Beyonce a Better Singer or Actor?

  • Way better singer.
  • She can act much better than she sings.
  • She's not very good at either.
  • I think she's a great singer and actor.
