Consensus: Roberto Benigni is an undeniably gifted physical comic, but the misguided Son of Pink Panther betrays his energetic efforts with a painfully unfunny script.

Jonathan Rosenbaum
Chicago Reader

[Benigni's] cheerful physicality and soul -- combined with Edwards's continuing feel for slapstick -- give the tired routines of Son of the Pink Panther whatever life they have.

That there are any laughs at all is due almost entirely to Benigni. He's not remotely like Sellers, but he's a creative physical comedian.

To be fair, Benigni does the best he can with the supremely unfunny material.

Outside of the James Bond films, it's hard to think of a series as passÚ as Blake Edwards' Pink Panther comedies.

Todd Anthony

Stay away at all costs. Do not be lulled by nostalgic memories of Inspector Clouseau's malapropisms; do not be fooled by slick print or TV ads; do not let your kids talk you into it.

Ten years after Peter Sellers died, Blake Edwards feels the need to make another sequel that is both tactless and unfunny.
