Even writing more than a sentence or 2 feels like a waste of energy.
With problem children, when they act out, the thing to do is ignore them; don't acknowledge their behaviour and they eventually stop. Would that it could work with this film.
It's so appalling, even John Cleese looks bad. John Cleese! I ask you! It's not his fault. He plays Clouseau's professional rival, and he is absolutely wasted on this. The cast, in fact, is stellar, with Alfred Molina, Emily Mortimer, Andy Garcia and Jean Reno also taking centre stage. All wasted.
They go in search of "The Tornado" - a master thief who has stolen the Pink Panther and other priceless things, such as the Shroud of Turin... and, actually, I can't be bothered to pay any more attention to this.
It's double pants and Peter Sellers is owed the very grovelliest of apologies.
