Review of film: “PINK PANTHER 2” -- SILLY but ENJOYABLE

Review of film:    PINK PANTHER 2   --  SILLY but ENJOYABLE =

I've always enjoyed the general purposeful nuttiness of the “PINK PANTHER” series of films, both with Peter Sellers & recently with STEVE MARTIN...

...  Martin stars here as the bumbling-but-successful French Inspector Clouseau. This time, he joins a “Dream Team” of sleuths (including one played by ANDY GARCIA) who are trying to track down the “Tornado” who’s been stealing very famous artifacts from around the world...

...  Although she’s somewhat wasted in this film (compared to the fine work she was allowed to do with Martin in 1984’s “ALL OF ME”), LILY TOMLIN appears as a woman trying to help Clouseau with being more “politically correct” (which is a pretty fruitless endeavor!)...

...  While it wasn’t great, the audience (including loads of kids) responded with a bunch of LAUGHS to the shenanigans going on, & the adults seemed to like the mild romantic elements...

...  While I didn’t find this as good as previous episodes, it’s a generally pleasant distraction (and we could certainly use that in these times).
