The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976)


Charles Dreyfus threatens to destroy the world with a doomsday device if Inspector Clouseau is not killed. Naturally, this is far harder than it sounds. (IMDb)
A mediocre overarching plot (the madman taking over the world and holding hostage a scientist to build him a doomsday machine trope is uninspired and over the top) is saved by its individual scenes, of which nearly each one is goofy slapstick gold you can’t help but laugh at–from Clouseau’s crazy combat with Cato to his daft dentist deceit to his culminating romantic night that ends hilariously horribly. The multiple assassins piece was poorly done though (they hardly seemed to be experts).
7/10 (Good)
