While The Pink Panther fans didn’t like this movie, I liked it. I didn’t saw any of the previous movies (well, probably I saw small parts on the TV) and thus, I do not know how the old Inspector Jacques Clouseau really was. I think the French accent was really good, and the stupidity was also very funny. I had a pleasant time watching Steve Martin. Jean Reno was a good Gendarme Gilbert Ponton, always with a serious face.
Regarding girls, while not fabulous, Emily Mortimer and Beyoncé Knowles make the movie catchy enough.
