Not for kids

CSM has only one item listed under "sex". ADD to that: showing a woman being stripped of her clothes and then running around in a skimpy bra and undies...A scene where she and Clouseau end up having sex--shown is them lying together with clothes exchanged...a belly dancer scene in which Clouseau's face is pressed against her and she yells: He'll cut off my tits/nipples! Too sensual to be watching with BOYS! POINT BEING: what is the point of a review if it's not honest in these areas that parents are trying to avoid? Also, I believe it had some swearing that CSM didn't review either. Wondering if I can trust their reviews for future!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

The plot seems awfully long and noisy, and the Schwarzeneggerean-scale action scenes are seem far less fun and slapstick-inspired than the mayhem in previous Pink Panther installments. Benigni does have one or two enjoyable scenes (especially one in which, disguised as a doctor, he accidentally injects himself repeatedly with novocaine), but young viewers who might potentially like him might also find him offscreen too much of the time, or dwarfed by the tumult. Gambrelli does have the virtues of being brave and chivalrous, and maybe a better script might have done something interesting with his poetry-reading character. But at this point it's really better to watch the Pink Panther classics.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
