When this movie hit theaters, it didn't exactly get rave reviews. Many critics lamented that Steve Martin is no Peter Sellers (the guy who made the Pink Panther famous).
Still, I can't help giggling whenever I see a preview, and my mom, who rarely finds comedies funny called to tell me this silly tale of the accident-prone Inspector Clouseau is a "hoot."
If I had a Netflix queue, this movie would be on it (instead, I'll have to make the trip to Hastings).
