Why It Sucks

  3. Laughably bad performances.
  4. Little-to-no connection to the previous Pink Panther films.
  5. The jokes aren't funny and instead come off as irritating.
  6. Bad way to conclude Blake Edwards' career as filmmaker.
  7. It was where the Pink Panther franchise went downhill.

Redeeming Qualities
