The Pink Panther 2006
First LookIn Theaters February 10, 2006 It's been forty years. Rather this remake was supposed to be released in 2004, to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of the original, classic, Pink Panther movie. So, now, forty two years after The Pink Panther was released we have this, a not so hot remake.
A world-famous soccer coach has been murdered and his priceless ring has been stolen - a ring set with the stunning diamond known as the Pink Panther. The French government needs a master detective to solve the crime and recover the gem... but he's not available, so they recruit Inspector Jacques Clouseau. Comic superstar Steve Martin stars as Clouseau in an all-new adventure of "The Pink Panther". A stunning pop star (Beyoncé), a soccer player, a Chinese assassin - who committed the crime? And can anyone solve the case? Clouseau and his partner, Ponton (Reno), must unmask the murderer and keep their boss, Dreyfus (Kline), from taking credit for the victory, all without bringing the French legal system to a screeching halt. Get ready to be tickled pink.
Or see red. The movie has been on the shelf for over a year. Never a good sign.
