4.0 out of 5 stars The genius of Peter Sellers, 14 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pink Panther Strikes Again [DVD] (DVD)
Another side-splitting offering from the comic dream-team of Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers. Unlike the previous Pink Panther movies, this one has a totally ridiculous plot and the central theme is the crazed attempts of the now out-of-control Dreyfus to assassinate Clouseau, even if he has to recruit 26 international killers and obliterate entire cities in the process. I remember finding it hilarious the first and second times around, but watching it again, there were longer gaps between the laughs. However, despite a rather uneven pace and clumsy attempts at dark humour, there are countless classic scenes which remain indescribably funny no matter how many times I have watched them. The initial encounter between the apparently-cured Dreyfus and a slightly condescending Clouseau, the staff interrogation (the gardener's disembodied voice ... just brilliant), the treadmill gag, the assault on the castle, the laughing gas scene. After repeated viewings, I actually enjoyed some of the less obvious humour, like when Clouseau finds his hotel bed in disarray (Swine maid!) or his tussle with his shirt when he's trying to impress Olga.

As I said about The Return Of The Pink Panther [DVD], Peter Sellers was a comic genius and his brand of classic, pure comedy remains timeless. The best parts are any scenes where Sellers is unleashed in bizarre situations, and his brilliant physical humour comes into play.
