Revenge Of The Pink Panther – Filtered

Theatrical Release: July 19, 1978
DVD Release: February 11, 1997


“Like the marx Brothers of W.C. Fields, Peter Sellers is the real thing” declares Newsweek, and in this hilarious homicidal howler, his brand of comic mayhem explodes with all the power of a “beum!” The world believes the bumbling Inspector Clouseau (Sellers) has become the victim of Douvier (Robert Webber), an American drug lord in Paris, who has blown the hapless inspector’s home into a million pieces. At the funeral, Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) eulogizes his former subordinate with tears in his eyes – from attempting to suppress his unparalleled glee! But it is Clouseau who has the last laugh. Very much alive, he and his faithful servant (Burt Kwouk) travel to Hong Kong with the drug lord’s discarded mistress (Dyan Cannon) to investigate Douvier and a heroin deal worth 50 million francs. But can Cluseau, disguised as the Godfather, intercept the deal? Will Inspector Dreyfus, who’s also on the case, see past the disguise in time to avoid killing his subordinate…or will he just kill him anyway?

Dove Review

Inspector Douvier and everyone thinks Clouseau is dead after Douvier blows up his house. But actually he is still alive. He goes undercover to investigate Douvier. Soon he heads to Hong Kong to investigate not only Douvier but the drug deal he has with an American buyer. Clouseau disguises himself as the Godfather .He is going to try and break the drug deal. This movie is funny in its own way. There’s a couple of funny parts such as when a man is doing karate and breaking everything in Douvier’s office and in the end, when the room is a mess, Douvier hands his asstisstant a broom and pan to clean up. And Clouseau is dressed as a man with a wooden peg leg. The leg gets stuck in a hole and he falls and his real leg comes out of the disguise. This movie is approved because there wasn’t anything bad.
