Curse of the Pink Panther
Curse of the Pink Panther (1983)

When the ultimate inept detective, Inspector Clouseau, disappears, the natural choice for his replacement is a similarly bumbling private eye. New York City detective Clifton Sleigh (Ted Wass) is just such a man.

The curse is the absence of Peter Sellers. Poor Niven is dubbed.

Jeffrey Westhoff
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Yeah, I know. But I fell out of my seat laughing at the ending.

Christopher Null

there's more to Clouseau than just making a mess of things

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

The magic is gone without Peter Sellers.

Karina Montgomery

Just not the same

may God have mercy on Blake's soul

Widgett Walls

There's a special corner of hell reserved for people who try to do Clouseau without Sellers.

Scott Weinberg

Yes, because we all know that the American equivalent to Peter Sellers is ... Ted Wass.

The cameo at the end is amusing, but not worth sitting through the rest of the film for.
