Son of the Pink Panther :- Watch Son of the Pink Panther on Youtube on Fire, 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. Eighth entry in the Pink Panther. It is nearly 30 years since Inspector Jacques Clouseau managed to get Maria Gambrelli off from a murder charge (events of “A Shot In The Dark”.) Maria has gone on and have moved to a seaside town. Also Princess Yasmin of Lugash has come to the town for a holiday with her father. She is kidnapped and because of the strong ties between France and Lugash, Chief Inspector Dreyfus is called in to find her. He is hampered by the local police officer Jacques and is amazed when he finds that Jacques is Maria’s son. He is terrified even though he and Maria are falling in love that Jacques is Clouseau’s son and Jacques is showing Clouseau-ish behaviour. Both Jacques and Dreyfus set out to find the missing Princess.. 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.
