Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some kids might like so-so Pink Panther."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Benigni tries, but it simply isn't any fun without Peter Sellers."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"What was Blake Edwards thinking? Or was he?"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"never does it get any more amusing than someone falling down, falling out of a window, or falling off of a bed"
‑ Christopher Null,
"oh my"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"What a bore, don't spawn Peter Sellers!"
‑ Michael Szymanski,
"Delivers a surprising amount of laughs. A guilty pleasure much like Edwards' much-maligned Curse of (1983)."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Ill-fated attempt to re-ignite the Clouseau series ... with Roberto Benigni."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Can you say 'cinematic atrocity' boys and girls? I was afraid you could. This has a place in the Sequel-For-Sequel's-Sake Hall of Infamy."
‑ Widgett Walls,
