Peter Sellers' best Pink Panther feature is hysterical but iffy.
The Pink Panther Strikes Again is a 1976 comedy movie directed by Blake Edwards and starring Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom, Lesley-Anne Down, Burt Kwouk, and Leonard Rossiter.
Language(1/5): “Hell” and “oh my god” used a few brief times.
Sex(3/5): A long scene involves Clouseau having sex with a russian agent. They flirt, kiss, and heavily imply sexual tension. Her cleavage is seen, and he places Clouseau's head on her breasts. At the end, they try to have sex a second time, but Clouseau can’t get his clothes off, and when he does, another person comes in and stops them midway under the covers. Clouseau goes to a gay club, and a transvestite singer attempts to seduce him. He then kisses him later on as a laugh.
Drinking, Drugs, And Smoking(1/5): Brief responsible drinking. Some smoking.
Violence(3/5): Comedically extreme plot involves the villain holding the world ransom for Clouseau. Guns are fired, and many assassins inadvertently kill themselves because of Clouseau’s clumsiness. Many situations where Clouseau injures himself and others in comedic fashion, including shooting his supervisor in the buttocks. A man is stabbed. A dead man who was shot is shown in a bathtub with blood all over it.
Positive Messages(1/5): Messages about caution and courage, but it is behind the comedy.
Positive Role Models And Representations: Clouseau is a fool, the villains are manic, and everybody is incompetent.
Highlight: Clouseau vs Cato
Watching Experience: Literally cried from laughing at the fight between Clouseau and Cato, and the first movie I saw with sensual tension.
Quality(opinionated): The film that made me fall in love with the slapstick genre. It's amazing, with a comedically zany plot, a hysterical villain, dumb but ingenious humor, and some of the funniest slapstick I've ever seen.
For comedic violence throughout and some sexual humor.
