Sean Kelly

My Thoughts on The Pink Panther 2

The critical consensus on Rotten Tomatoes for this film (which actually went from the 6% Fresh I reported yesterday to 14% Fresh) say that "The Pink Panther 2 is little more than a series of lame slapstick gags."

And to that I reply "So?"

It really confounds me when people expect a comedy to be some sort of cinematic masterpiece, when in actuality the goal of the film is to make you laugh.

I have to say that The Pink Panther 2 made me laugh. The laughs were slightly down from the previous film, but there were still scene that had me going with laughter.

To me, that's all that counts.

8/10
