Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Martin fumbles it from the off. And that, in a nutshell, is reason enough to avoid this as one might any other calamity."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"What is our reward for the collective effort of this prestigious assembly? One of the most dreadfully unnecessary movies in recent memory."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"It's not a crime to be silly, although the cast of The Pink Panther 2 dance perilously close to committing at the very least a misdemeanor."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"...more of the film's jokes fall flat than hit their mark..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's not only a pointless resurrection of Blake Edwards' classic comic franchise, but a formulaic photocopy of its predecessor -- Steve Martin's 2006 remake."
‑ Annette Basile, FILMINK (Australia)
"Martin has a few inspired moments but in order to get to them you have to wade through a mosh pit of unfunny gags."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"The soundtrack makes generous use of trombones to indicate humor."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Offers more of what was in the 2006 remake, which became a hit in spite of the chorus of film critics who pointed out that the movie was awful and then were roundly ignored by the public, which knows what it likes, thank you very much."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
"Not funny, and certainly shouldn't be rated a kid-friendly PG either."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"There are some beautifully constructed, elaborately inventive sequences of mayhem involving sight gags; then there are the scenes in between, when people talk. These are mostly disappointing."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"Remember when Martin was funny?"
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"One can only hope that something good is coming from all the bad movies that Steve Martin has been appearing in."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"It's unlikely that anyone over 10 will find much to cheer in this film, and adults will just be depressed by seeing a once-cutting-edge wit like Mr. Martin debasing himself."
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
"I was not a fan of the first of these new Pink Panther films, but I must admit this time around Martin nails the puffed-up twittery of the character and performs the physical gags well."
‑ Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"Steve Martin reprises his role as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau in this hideous sequel to a boring remake."
‑ Julian Roman, MovieWeb
