Critics reviews

After the low point of The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976), Edwards has happily risen to top form once more with 10. The visual and narrative economy of the film is superb. The first scene, a surprise birthday party for George Webber (Dudley Moore), establishes immediately the age of the hero – 42 – and hence his self-perceived problem with diminishing masculine prowess; and his occupation as a pianist and songwriter, hence his cultural position and image.
