Pink Panther II was good??

So with the under box office performing and announced "last" film-Pink Panther 2, how does this series go out...? Magnificently! First thing they did 100% right- replaced Kline with comedy peer
of Martin-John Cleese for Dreyfus- Also adding Molina, Tomlain, and others (Jeremy Irons)- Another thing that always benefits any Steve Martin is giving him a big writing chair. A gamble that paid off- was also letting newcomer Harald Zwart helm the directing. Replacing the surprising failure that Shawn Levy turned in with Pink Panther 1. Zwart seems to understand timing better than Edwards and Sellers. (if that is possible) But Pink Panther 2 easily trumps the admirable efforts of the Italian (Roberto Benigni) 93's 'Son of The Pink Panther' and 06's Steve Martin's first try in 'Pink Panther'...Now-they finally get it right!! They even bring back "my little yellow friend"... Giving us actual creative, irreverent and genuinely funny physical setups and payoffs=classic comedy. Along with good film pacing and surprisingly funny dialogue- they all finally make the classic character's their own- and give them an excellent homage all the same time.

Did less well than 1st one at box office, but numbers aren't everything. His 1st Panther outing probably scared everyone away. It did outperform 2 of his old classics however.

The Man with Two Brains $10,353,438
Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid$18,196,17
The Pink Panther 2$35,922,978
The Pink Panther, ( 2006) $82,226,474

Yeah. It was fucking terrible.

I should have known better after the first one, but I'm a big fan of Molina, Cleese, and especially Irons. Serves me right I guess.
Konnichi wa!
