      Who needs CGI ;)

      I can remember how much I really laughed to near death when Clouseau simply looked at the camera and said "This is it!" while missing the flying kick yet again as Cato seemingly mutters in generic Japanese dialects, while Clouseau himself kicks the kitchen dishes in slow motion, therefore destroying everything.

      A work of a genius! :D

      It is awesome Sellers was in a world of his own as Clouseau, he had the ability to completely become the character he was playing, absolute genius.

      A Shot in the Dark is one of the funniest films ever.

      Actually the muttering comes from Clouseau himself. It's the sound he makes while attempting to karate chop Cato. Which makes no sense, given he is letting out a big scream at the same time. But it is what it is. Clouseau... in stereo.

      I love that sound at 0:07 (!) that appears to be a tape winding down. And the fact the shelves on the wall start to fall by themselves.

      That stunt with the guy falling on the table is so gracefully performed. The sheer feeling of chaos it conveys is not only hilarious, it's also strangely exhilarating. Makes me want to perform a flying kick too, and destroy everything.

      The Pink Panther films at there best when anarchic thats why they were so good, I agree with @Barryt007 A Shot in the Dark is my favourite, though even the weakest film The Revenge... had its moments the Hong Kong finale is bonkers.

      My own favorite is Return, because I feel a little Clouseau goes a long way, and I like how his screentime is balanced with Plummer's, Lom's and Schell's.

      Plummer is great and equally as good as Niven playing Sir Charles Phantom The Notorious Pink Litton, all the films had great supporting cast.
    • ClarkDevlin

      Plummer in 'Return' has very Bondian moments. Sometimes all I see is what could have been had they cast Plummer as Bond in 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. I mean, both films use similar and almost the same locations. Think about it.
    • mattjoes

      Yeah, he's damn cool in the film. He's suave, has swagger and a sense of humor. He could've been Bond. A Canadian Bond.

      I dig the scene in the Fat Man's nightclub. All smiles but a sense of danger underneath. And Lytton's escape begins with a long take that while not perfect, is quite impressive nonetheless.

      Indeed, and for a reason, I see Plummer as Bond via 'Return' while reading the novelization of 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. Some of the suits worn by Bond in the book parallel those worn by Plummer in the aforementioned film of his.

      Well-uh, if there's a Leddy Lytton there must be a Leurd.

      I lose it when Clouseau pronounces Ginger Ale with a French accent trying to be American. Hahaha!

      'here is looking at you kid' Catherine Schell's reaction is gold
    • mattjoes

      Catherine Schell is damn good in this film, very lively and charming. And her genuine laughter adds a lot to these scenes!
    • Fire_and_Ice_Returns

      Agreed Schell comes across as a very genuine person, I think she is great in this film and of course fantastic in her small role in OHMSS

      Definitely one of the best scenes in the Blake Edwards-directed Pink Panther film series.

      Adam West is the only Batman that I've ever watched, and I'm happy to keep it that way. There was something very special about that show, in a strange, fun way.

      The films are also great, and I like the Gotham TV show too.

      This modern pest control made him regret dressing up as a bat.

      We're sorry to bother you at a time like this, Mrs. Twice. We would've come earlier but your husband wasn't dead yet.

    What happened to the old account, my friend? Either way, great to see you back. We've had a few people leaving recently so it's nice to get someone back.
