Curse of the Pink Panther
In this installment of the Pink Panther series, Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) hires a hack New York cop named Clifton Sleigh (Ted Wass) to find the missing Inspector Clouseau. Unfortunately, Sleigh proves just as bumbling as the man he's assigned to find. Along the way, Sleigh interviews a cast of characters who've appeared in earlier Pink Panther films. Robert Wagner, Roger Moore and David Niven (in his final film role) co-star. Blake Edwards directs.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has occasional off-color humor, including the blundering hero's posterior stuck in an inner-tube pool-toy bird, the head of which juts out suggestively between his legs. On another occasion a pretty girl does her best to entice the same character into bed (he resists). There is a glimpse of a nude woman covered in mud at a health spa.
- Sexual Content
- A pretty girl tries to entice Sleigh into lovemaking, and nearly succeeds. Early on Sleigh is disguised as a hooker for an undercover operation, and is propositioned by sleazy men and attacked by other prostitutes.
- Slapstick fighting between Sleigh and Cato, and a big martial-art streetfight. Various shots fired, one character killed at close range.
- A supporting character is named 'Balls.'
- Social Behavior
- The unresolved Clouseau subplot leaves a troubling suggestion that maybe the great inspector finally went bad. Sleigh is a boyish type, honest and decent (too bad he's also so forgettable). A petite blonde who briefly becomes his love interest turns out to be a fearless martial-arts fighter.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Social drinking, and Sleigh pretending his inflatable-dummy decoy is a drunken girl.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
