Businessman Philippe Douvier (Webber) has ties to the New York Mafia and is sealing a deal for a highly profitable drug-smuggling opeartion with them. Thinking he may be too old and therefore not up to the task, Douvier sets out to prove his worthiness by taking out Chief Inspector Clouseau (Sellers) once and for all. Douvier’s assassination attempts force Clouseau to dip into his bag of wits and tricks to thwart his new nemesis.
But when Clouseau accidentally slips out of one of Douvier’s biggest traps, he is deemed dead and his ex-boss Charles Dreyfus (Lom) is deemed sane and released from the mental asylum to be assigned to the case. Clouseau resurfaces and, with the help of Cato and Douvier’s mistress Simone, he seeks out his revenge on Douvier and attempts to sabotage his drug operation.
“Revenge of the Pink Panther” isn’t as shabby and hilarious as the previous entry, “The Pink Panther Strikes Again”, but it displays enough wit and humor to keep it afloat and make it just as interesting and funny to watch. http://explosive.today.com/2009/03/17/revenge-of-the-pink-panther-1978-12/
