Son of the Pink Panther (1993) Poster

Charles Dreyfus encounters Jacques Gambrelli, who reminds him painfully of Inspector Clouseau, the man who drove him insane. With good reason: Gambrelli is Clouseau's son.

What do you say about a movie that proudly proclaims THREE (no more!) stars from the lone critic quoted from the box - and it's from a CANADIAN PAPER? One word - AWFUL! Roberto Benigni is a funny and talented actor, so he's not to blame for this mess - blame Edwards. Did Edwards actually used to be funny? I thought he used to be, but you'd never know from this movie. It's shocking to see Burt Kwouk looking so aged, but he and Lom, Cardinale, and Stark provide the movie's only pleasure, because they are kind of old friends by now.

With the abysmal grosses of this SOP (Son Of Pink), you'd think that the series is finally at an end. However, I read recently that United Artists is planning to revive (!) the series!!! They are going to replace Edwards, and bring a new lead in - but I don't trust Hollywood for remakes and resurrecting old franchises anymore.

Yussa: Maybe.
Hanif: Better.
Hanif: She was only showing how good she is.

When Jaques Gambrelli leaves the hospital, his bike has wet cement on the wheels. In the next scene, the wheels are clean, with no trace of cement.

Crazy Credits

The closing credits start with the Pink Panther walking across a still of Jacques Gambrelli. Suddenly the animated Gambrelli cuts away the head of live-action Gambrelli and pops out of the hole, dropping the head on the Panther; the enraged Panther chases him into fading blackness.

Alternate Versions

Italian prints (available on DVD in Italy) contains several alternate scenes, different camera angles and sound effects. This version runs at 86 minutes, seven minutes shorter of the U.S. cut. The alternate scenes are somewhat bawdy and make for a much funnier film:

  • Gambrelli, riding in the car with Dreyfus and Francois Duval, pulls out a condom, starts stretching it and inflating it like a balloon. The condom then pops.
  • Gambrelli's lock up with the princess: Hans drops his body on the floor in Yasmin's room before leaving. Gambrelli comes to his senses seeing Yasmin, collapsing onto Yasmin's lap in a stupor. He then recoups himself onto her chest and makes love with the aroused Yasmin. He attempts to burst out the door, but gets flung back onto the floor. The scene ends with implied oral sex as the shot focuses on Yasmin's face, much to her satisfaction.
  • Dialogue from Gambrelli during the ending animated Pink Panther sequence.
