Blake Edwards United Kingdom, 1964

Christopher Scott Zeidel's rating of the film A Shot in the Dark

After 30 years of edgier and sometimes R rated comedy such as Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, A Fish Called Wanda, Clerks, There's Something About Mary, American Pie, and of course The Hangover, the early Pink Panther films are too innocent for today's audiences. The humor is dated. Do we laugh at bird poop anymore? Is the nudist colony scene funny in the age of The Hangover? See my point?
