DVD: "The Pink Panther"

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).
