Peter Sellers's third go-around as the prideful but bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau is funny enough, but this 1975 Blake Edwards revival of the Sellers-Clouseau connection is a little weak in comparison to predecessors The Pink Panther and A Shot in the Dark (both made in 1964). Costar Christopher Plummer actually gets some of the most interesting screen time as a retired cat burglar whom Clouseau accuses of getting back into the business. (If it sounds like there might be a To Catch a Thief vibe mixed in here, you're right.) Herbert Lom is hilarious as Clouseau's psychologically eroding boss, and Clouseau's ritualistic collisions with valet Cato (Burt Kwouk) are great examples of Edwards's delicious comic timing. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

The Pink Panther diamond has been stolen again and Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) is called in to find the thief. Christopher Plummer has taken over David Niven's role as number one suspect, but this time he is innocent and decides he'll have to find the culprit himself if he wants to avoid a life behind bars. Clouseau, meanwhile, conducts the police investigation in his idosyncratic style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the funniest 18 Jun 2007
I haven't, in truth, watched this film for years, but I remember it as being one of the funniest in the Pink Panther series (A Shot In The Dark being, overall, the best film per se.)

I thought it might be useful to say to Sellers collectors that this film is not included in the Pink Panther box set in the UK. I think this is because the home video distribution rights were sold to another company, away from UA. So, if you want the complete Pink Panther, you need to get this disc as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not now Cato! 24 April 2008
This is the third story in the Pink Panther series and it's a really funny movie. The plot is a bit stretched at times but it is compensated by the brilliant comic timing and physical humour of Sellers, and Herbert Lom's Commissioner Dreyfus with his slow mental breakdown over the course of the film. This sets up the next installment (Pink Panther Strikes Again) which is probably the best for laugh-out-loud comedy. However, this film is not far behind especially when you hark back to Clouseau reprimanding the blind man with the monkey, outside the bank being so conspicuously robbed!

The only downside is that it doesn't have the same strength in cast as the first movie where diamond thief Sir Charles Litton aka The Phantom (or "Charles Phantom aka The Litton") is played by David Niven so effortlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sellers in Genius mode!!!! 24 Feb 2006
By R. Reel
Well you have to hand it to Sellers for this one, everything about this film is a diamond. It is better than the first movie and clearly the most wanted Pink Panther movie to complete your collection. This is a must buy, it is so funny and entertaining, if you love Sellers you will adore this.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Return Of The Pink Panther 2 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
There are certain films that one should watch when feeling a little down in the dumps, and in my opinion this is definitely one of them. Some of the scenes are timeless and pure genius. If you can't laugh at them then you mustn't have a pulse. Besides all the scenes with Dreyfuss slowly having a breakdown and his attempts to kill Clouseau; the scene where Clouseau comes back to his apartment with his shopping is one of the funniest. "Where are you my little yellow friend ?" directed towards Cato, searching the apartment fruitlessly for his manservant and deciding to put his groceries away. Out of the fridge jumps Cato covered in ice.....brilliant.

2.0 out of 5 stars Film is classic, DVD transfer sucks 15 Jun 2001
By A Customer
The film content is priceless, Sellars steals the show.
The transfer is very poor, it has blips and is not widescreen - much of the visual joke is lost because you can't see what's going on. It's only funny if you've already seen the film widescreen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true comedy classic 12 Dec 2000
Format:VHS Tape
There will probably be nothing as enduringly funny as Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther films.
Although not as wacky as "The Pink Panther Strikes Again", "Return of the Pink Panther" still has many memorably funny scenes, mainly involving Clouseau disguised as a telephone repairman or a hotel cleaner.
The only real niggling point with the movie is the casting... those who have seen the original "Pink Panther", or the later "Curse of the Pink Panther", may wonder why Christopher Plummer is playing Sir Charles Litton rather than David Niven.
That aside, like the others in the series, this movie is an incredibly enjoyable way to pass a couple of hours, and one which never loses it's humour after repeated viewing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film Dire disc 12 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Quite why the company decided to release this film in such an apalling fashion is beyond me. I had waited for years for the Panther films to be released in widescreen. Sadly the DVD company has decided to waste it's time in releasing it in fullscreen.
Buy the R1 discs if you want to see the film as it is meant to be seen. This version of the disc should be consigned to the waste bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars comedy at its best 15 Jun 2010
Well I bought this DVD due to the fact the first pink panther collection didn't include this film, due to MGM not owning the rights to it. I remember watching this film when I was younger and its still as funny as it was then, if not funnier. Peter Sellers returns as the bumbling Inspector trying to locate the missing Pink Panther diamond who he assumes was stolen by the Phantom. There is hardly a moment where you are not crying with laughter and you wonder if Catherine Schell who plays Lady Claudine Litton was laughing because of Peter Sellers acting or it was in the script. I have shown this film to younger friends who have seen the films and they all loved it. If you are looking for a funny film suitable for all of the family then this is the one to have.
