What they say
When a star soccer coach is murdered and his priceless Pink Panther diamond stolen, France is in an uproar. Fortunately, Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin, 'Bowfinger', 'Cheaper by the Dozen') is on the case. He doesn't have a clue, but for Clouseau, that's just a minor detail. With his partner, Gilbert Ponton (Jean Reno, 'The Da Vinci Code', 'The Professional'), he careens from one misadventure to the next, leaving mayhem in his wake from the boulevards of Paris to the streets of New York. Will he seduce the pop diva, Xania (Beyoncé Knowles, 'Austin Powers: Goldmember')? Will he push Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Oscar® Winner Kevin Kline, 1988 Best Supporting Actor, 'A Fish Called Wanda') over the edge? Will he catch the killer and recover the diamond? With Inspector Clouseau, anything is possible.

My Thoughts
I was surprised by that. I didn't realise how slapstick it is. Not that I was expecting intelligent humour, but I didn't realise it was this much over the top. And I must say, this was not my cup of tea, so to speak. To me, one of the biggest problem here is that most, if not all, of the comedy is based around Clouseau's clumsiness. Now, I like scenes where a characters clumsiness creates comedy, but for a whole 90 minutes? It gets really irritating. And what makes it worse, if they reuse gags all over the movie. It's like had ideas to do a short, but had to stretch it to feature length by contract, and decided to rotate the few jokes they had, and redo them in different context over and over again.

So while I didn't hate it, it was a very forgettable 90 minutes. It is a disappointment.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this one... though I am not all that familiar with some of the characters in this one. Mainly that of the Teen Titans. It has a good story... it is worth the time put in to watch it.

Tom's Random Star Trek Reviews, a review by Tom


VOY 6.09 The Voyager Conspiracy
Writer: Joe Menosky (Writer)
Director: Terry Windell
Cast: Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway), Robert Beltran (Chakotay), Roxann Dawson (B'Elanna Torres), Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris), Ethan Phillips (Neelix), Robert Picardo (The Doctor), Tim Russ (Tuvok), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim), Albie Selznick (Tash), Scarlett Pomers (Naomi Wildman), Majel Barrett (Computer Voice (voice))

I completely forgot about this episode. On the page discussing "clip shows" at tvtropes someone mentioned this episode as in interesting twist on clip shows. This episode hardly has any clips from previous episodes, and the ones it got are only few seconds long. Seven malfunctions while downloading too much of Voyager's data into her brain during regeneration, and now sees conspiracies in past incidents and even gets Janeway and Chakotey riled up so much, that they almost start to distrust each other.
This is a nice little bottle episode, but the resolution to Seven's paranoia is too fast. She comes around after a short little pep talk by the captain.
