I write my little movie reviews/reflections with two purpose in mind. One of them is to keep track of what movies I’ve seen. I watch a lot of movies and my memory is finite. Thus when selecting what to watch next I sometimes need this external device to help me “remember” what movies I might have already seen. A few of my own words about the movie usually jumps my recollection of what I thought of a movie even I forgot the title. The other purpose is to share these actual thoughts I the hope that every once in a while others might enjoy my reflections too. That’s why the blog is public. I try to focus on the positive aspects of all movies, even if I didn’t particularly like them.
In the case of “Pink Panther 2” the focus is on the first of the two objectives mentioned above. I can say now that I watched the movie, so if I stumble upon it again I won’t have any doubt it. I am in trouble with the second objective though. The time I spent watching this movie is best described as a waste of my time. The story was not just silly and predictable but boring too. The acting sub-par even if some of the actors were well-known whom I usually like, such as Steve Martin, Jean Reno, Andy Garcia, and John Cleese. The directing was pointless. The only good thing I can say about it is that some of the scenery and buildings was alright. But that’s not the merit of the movie itself. OK, I’ve seen the movie so now you don’t have to.
IMDB’s summary: Insp. Jacques Clouseau teams up with a squad of International detectives who are just as bumbling as he is. Their mission: Stop a globe-trotting thief who specializes in stealing historical artifacts.
