|09.13.07||Netflix|| So I guess a long time ago when I watched the other Pink Panther movies I thought I should go ahead and rent the last two just to complete the set, even though the last few I'd watched were horrible. Thanks to netflix queue neglect, I guess that time has come.|
This one follows around an American detective in search of Closeau's disappearance. The catch is - get this - he's just as bumbling as Closeau was! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA genius! At least this time they didn't try to say Sellers had anything to do with it by using outtakes and deleted scenes from previous films, but they still try to revisit all the old supporting characters and villains in an effort to justify this one's existence. It's really long and so complex that I never really had any idea of what was going on (not that I was paying too close attention after a half hour or so, i just kind of gave up thinking about it and just watched the pictures on the screen) but I think at the end what happened is Closeau turned bad and stole the pink panther for himself then had plastic surgery to make himself look like Roger Moore but then The Phantom (an ancient David Niven) stole it from him. I kind of thought the one thing Closeau had going for him was that he was the good guy so this didn't sit right with me at all.
Everything else about the movie is boring and unnoteworthy. Blake Edwards, man. How can the same guy make a movie like Breakfast at Tiffany's and this?
