Somewhat disappointing Pink Panther film, never really kicking into high gear. Certain moments stand out, especially the running lighter/gun Dreyfuss' gag which give me giggles. I think my main problem is Sellers is clearly mugging for the camera (that vacuum scene), and all the characters pick on Clousseau which makes this feel more mean-spirited than the others. He's a bumbling idiot, but he's our bumbling idiot.
[Cinémathèque PT: 35 mm (2011)]("Set a thief, to catch a thief.")the chaos of Cato's fight?<3Everyone was doing this by the numbers, cruise control. Laughed but not as hard as I did with earliest entries of the saga. Still had a blast seeing Plummer kicking ass on white loafers, doing his best 007 parkour'in thru those rooftops like a boss. Especially love that scene when he falls on his back uttering a muted "shit".
