The ORIGINAL "Pink Panther Strikes Again" Sept. 24 1999
By - Published on
The Trail of the Pink Panther is, yes, a bit of a jumbled mess. However, the one substantial redeeming quality about the film (which gives it a rating of "3") is the oppurtunity for the viewer to catch a glimpse of what "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" produced six years prior, might have really looked like before the film editors or possibly Blake Edwards himself, got to it. 80% of the scenes with Peter Sellers in this movie were originally intended for "Strikes", or so I've been told, and if the audience member does a little "cut and paste" footwork, s/he can determine the exact location in "Strikes" where MOST (but not all) of the Sellers sequences in "Trail" occur. Some of them are hilarious - the long scene with Harvey Korman for example ("...and I want THAT nose") - or the bit about the "mess-aaage". Others are long and tedious to sit through.
I suppose that if someone were really interested and possessed two video taping machines, one could make a copy of the REAL "Strikes Again" by lifting scenes from "Trail" and placing them where they were meant to belong in "Strikes"!!! Someone recently informed me that the original plot for "The PP Strikes Again" included the theft of the diamond, which would account for the other Sellers scenes in this one which make reference to the famous Diamond.
The second half is rather boring, but there are some humorous comments made by the aging characters.
The end sequence during the closing credits is the best collection of Clouseau scenes probably ever assembled in one place.

in memory of peter sellers Aug. 31 2009
By Jack Miller - Published on
Format: DVD
this is a compilation of all the pink panther movies as a reporter goes around asking clouseau's friends/enemies things about him. all the footage of peter sellers is from previous movies. it is basically a tribute to peter sellers movie, if your expecting a "new" peter sellers movie you will be very disapointed. overall it wasnt horrible movie, thus i gave it 2 stars, but it is not a movie you would want to watch over and over like all the rest of peter seller's movies.

hope this helps.

Passable Panther June 14 2006
By SylvesterFox007 - Published on
Format: DVD
The problem with many long-running series is that after a few entries everything seems like old material. In "Trail of the Pink Panther", it literally is.

Director Blake Edwards attempts to make one more Peter Sellers Inspector Clouseau movie, despite the fact that Peter Sellers died before the movie began filming. To accomplish his goal, Edwards weaves deleted scenes from previous Pink Panther films with newly filmed "plot" scenes to try to create a coherent story about Clouseau picking up the trail of the Pink Panther diamond one more time.

Halfway through the movie, Clouseau is conveniently declared missing, and a nosy reporter investigates Clouseau's life. She tracks down characters from the series and gets them to tell their stories about Clouseau, providing a clothesline to hang highlight clips from previous films on.

It's easy for anyone who's seen the other films to tell where the archive footage, even the deleted scenes, come from. All of this adds together to create an uneasy feeling of déjà vu for the viewer.

There are some original scenes in which the reporter interviews Clouseau's father, leading into some interesting (and funny) flashbacks to Clouseau's childhood. Even this, however, fails to take away from the feeling of watching the kind of "clip show" common in long-running TV shows. And when a TV show does a "clip show" episode, it's either a finale or the show's jumped the shark. (Think of the final episode of "Seinfeld." This entire movie is the Pink Panther equivalent.)

While the movie could be a good overview or introduction to the series, it's simply not as enjoyable as watching the individual movies themselves and seeing the jokes in their proper context. Even the new or previously unreleased material pales in comparison to that of the earlier movies. And while a "Best of" disc is something of an enjoyable novelty, it's understandable that this movie flopped. I can't fathom why anyone would pay money to see it in theaters.

Not to say that this movie doesn't have its place. For Pink Panther completists, this movie is like a bonus DVD. But like most DVD bonus features, this movie isn't one that will be watched often. For anyone other than completists, this movie is definitely skippable.

Trail of the Pink Panther Aug. 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Trail of the Pink Panther is an odd film,it has some funny scenes, but I do not like the plot of Clouseau missing. It is an excuse not to show Peter Sellers. But Dreyfus makes up for it, by doing these funny gags about his blood pressure meter blowing up. A reporter talks to people who knew Clouseau, When she talks to Dreyfus he embarrasess himself in front of the TV Camera! Clouseau does some funny things when he is seen. But the plotline is kind of bad, first the diamond is stolen, then Clouseau is missing. Who is going to recover the diamond! You never find out what happens to the diamond. The scenes when you see Sellers, are unused footage from previous Pink Panther films. But, this is the best Edwards could do sence Sellers died two years before this film was made.

A shameful entry in the Pink Panther series Nov. 25 2012
By Daddy - Published on
Format: DVD
It's sad that the movie industry always wants to squeeze every penny they can from any popular series... and always ends up going too far. As is the case with Trail Of The Pink Panther... Whether this entry in the Pink Panther series is a lame attempt to cash in on residual popularity after Peter Sellers' death, or an homage to Peter Sellers, it fails on both accounts. In fact, since the footage of Sellers is taken from unused footage of previous movies, the resulting collage of scenes is some of the weakest jokes and poorest acting by Sellers which was not used in previous films... for good reason... and therefore, diminishes Sellers appeal for the gifted talent he was. One reviewer noted that this film is only for die-hard Sellers fans... I disagree... I am a die-hard Sellers fan, and even I have no interest in this one. The only redeeming features of this entry is the continued comedic charm of Herbert Lom - whom they manage to bring back in every film, despite his character's destruction at the end of Pink Panther Strikes Again... and the footage of Harvey Korman as Dr. Auguste Balls (Clouseau's costume specialist)... this footage was taken from deleted scenes of Pink Panther Strikes Again - in which Korman was replacing the very funny Graham Starke. What little footage of Sellers is used is combined with a body double and dubbed vocals to fill in gaps of the scene. For example; there is an extended scene of Clouseau bringing home a bag of groceries and the rice leaking from the bag... you may recognize this gag from its shorter version in a previous film... here, the scene is redone, extended with a body double and the out-takes of that original scene. Out-takes are not used in regular films for a reason... because they are not the best efforts of either the actors or the directors... as is the case with the footage of Sellers used in this film. The first half of Trail Of The Pink Panther is mildly amusing, but with all weak scenes showing some of Sellers lesser efforts... his outtakes. That they should try to piece these previously deleted bits together and fool us into thinking it's an actual film is an insult to viewers and a blot on Sellers' comedic genius. The rest of the film is a news reporter interviewing many of Clouseau's friends and rivals in regard to his disappearance. In this part, Herbert Lom adds some minor fun, but the ailing David Niven (whose voice had to be dubbed) and the poor performance of Robert Loggia (completely out of character) along with a pointless plot and no real storyline make it a jumbled mess of a movie. A second post-Sellers movie attempt was made with Curse Of The Pink Panther - a dismally bad mimic of Sellers with Ted Wass as a New York detective in search of Clouseau. Blake Edwards did manage to make one final winner... Son Of The Pink Panther, starring Roberto Begnini... a very funny last entry in the Pink Panther Series. This entry however -Trail Of The Pink Panther - is more of an insult to Peter Sellers than an homage. I strongly urge you to avoid it... it will leave a bad taste in your mouth and stain the colorful memory you may have of Pink Panther movies and Peter Sellers in his prime.
