More sexuality than expected

Typical PP material but be aware there is quite a bit of sexual scenes. A woman's naked breasts are shown in outline. She is in dark with light behind her and is climbing in bed with detective. Then she's shown laying on her stomach on the bed covered with sheet. You can see her nipple. My 11 yo was watching as we've seen several PP movies and this was the 1st with such blatant sexual scenes. Had to fast forward several times due to this. Other than the sex, this is fine for young kids. Be prepared to fast forward.

Too much sex

Brilliant! But some violence!

Mild gun shooting and poisoned darts. I love this movie so much! The comedy and violence made me laugh! I'd rate it 10+ for some violence and expclicate deaths

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (7 ):

This is paws-down the zaniest of the Peter Sellers Pink Panther movies, the closest they came to resembling the spinoff cartoons in their frantic gags. It's sheer comedic anarchy that goes gleefully over the top. Lom is a riot, and a perfect match for Peter Sellers here.

There is plenty here for kids and adults to laugh at, and the intrigue-filled plot resembles the later Austin Powers movies -- but with more old-school slapstick than Austin's raunchy, oft-distasteful bathroom humor. A lot of kids are awkward and fumbling and -- while they might not want to admit it -- might feel a lot like Clouseau sometimes, and you can talk with them about how they feel when nothing seems to be going right.
