You can't expect much from the director of Cheaper by the Dozen but this isn't quite as bad as it could've been. Steve Martin steps into Peter Sellers' hard to fill shoes as the hopeless Inspector Clouseau. He is given the case of the missing Pink Panther diamond in the hope that he'll balls up the proceedings so much that Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kevin Kline) can secretly solve the crime and claim glory. The riddle they're trying to get to the bottom is the death of the French football team coach Yves Gluant (Jason Statham) who was murdered in the middle of a crowded stadium. Bizarrely, the legendary diamond ring he was wearing is nowhere to be found so Clouseau, along with his patient assistant (Jean Reno), must find it.

Naturally, the first person Clouseau wants to question is Gluant's gorgeous girlfriend (Beyonce Knowles). This isn't as predictable as you'd expect. The storyline is well rounded and will keep viewers interested until the end while there are some moments of true hilarity from Martin who, with the limited amusing lines he has to work with, occasionally reminds us of what a talented comedian he can still be if he has the right material. Sadly, most of the humour relies on tired slapstick.
