3.0 out of 5 stars Reloaded, jammed Pt. 1. 18 Jan 2007
Format:DVD
When Curse came out in 1983, it was not a surprise to anyone. The previous film, Trail of the Pink Panther, had an open ending, and an announcement in the end credits that they would all return in 'Curse of the Pink Panther'. But, whereas 'Trail' had been a choked attempt at making a movie using clips of the brilliant Peter Sellers, 'Curse' were to relaunch the franchise with a new actor as a, not the, bumbling inspector. Ted Wass did play bumbling and inept, but he was American, unknown and he wasn't Peter Sellers (His acting career wasn't much of anything after this either).

The point, as it is, of this movie is to find Clouseau, a computer chooses the best detective in the World to do so, but it's sabotaged and choses the worst instead.

The inspector is found, played by Roger More. Plastic surgery, it's a wonderful thing, isn't it?

The value of this movie is in some of the better known recurring characters, Herbert Lom as Inspector Dreyfus, Burt Kwouk as Cato as well as Robert Wagner and David Niven in his very last film (Niven was so frail, his voice was dubbed by Rich Little).

This was the second time everyone realised only Sellers could play Clouseau (the first time was in 1968 when Alan Arkin played the part in 'Inspector Clouseau'). Everyone realised it again in 1993 with 'Son of the Pink Panther (An imensly irritating Roberto Benigni), and finally, atleast the critics realised it in 2006 (Steve Martin's turn in 'The Pink Panther' did well at the boxoffice however and a Pink Panther 2 has a 2008 release planned).

Allthough mostly a shambles, it does have a few good laughs, Blake Edwards is the man behind the reigns and for those who want to complete their collection, this is far from a complete waste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad! 17 May 2008
By Craig Taylor VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As Pink Panther Films go, this is not a bad attempt. After the disaster of Trail of The Pink Panther, I wasn't expecting much from this follow up, but I was in for a suprise.
The film picks up straight after Trail, where inspector Clouseau had gone missing. A new main character of Clifton Sleigh is introduced to trace him. Sleigh adds some new life to the tired franchise, and makes the film enjoyable and entertaining. To top things off, most of the characters and cast from the original series are present, including David Niven as the Phantom, Kato, Herbert Lom and Graham Stark to name a few. Plus Rodger Moore even makes a hilarious cameo towards the end of the film as the Inspector. The scene alone is a must see.
This film is a must see for any Pink Panther fan and I just wish they'd made more with Sleigh in them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the real thing 14 Jan 2013
By Steve
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was assembled partly from from out-takes and partly new seqenceswith new actor identified as a replacement for Clouseau (and therefore Sellers) as aprt of the very thin and weak plot. it lacks coherence and the talemt that Sellers brought to al the other Panthrr films. Neither interesting nor funny - just a way to collect some last cash from the brand. At least it was cheap or it would have got 1 star.

This is superior to the film Bitwa warszawska 1920. It gets the simple things right: a decent script and characters that you can empathise with. Not actually a magic formula is it? But why no subtitles in English at least? If Czas Honoru and Sprawiedliwi from the same studio have them then why was the cash not stumped up? The Polish only situation limits the audience; and it is not as if there is much out there about a war that many have never heard of and many pretend never happened. The drama takes place in isolation with little intrusion into the script about how other countries reacted to the war and what they did or did not do. No mention of Lloyd George's perfidy or British unions supporting the Soviets. Even General Weygand is left out! The portrayal of the Soviets is negative: no wait I have read around this subject.. it is accurate! The battle scenes in the closing episodes improve: the first one looks like what it is and that is two sets of actors in a field. The opening and closing music is very evocative and makes you sit through both per episode.
