In Revenge of the Pink Panther, for the final time, the bumbling but impeturbable Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) maddens his long-suffering boss Dreyfus (Herbert Lom), sharpens his wits and martial skills with his manservant Cato (Burt Kwouk) and foils the bad guys without ever having a clue about what he is doing. In the story, Clouseau allows a gang of drug racketeers to believe that he has been assassinated and dons a series of disguises as he travels all over the world in order to apprehend the culprits. He is assisted by Simone Legree (Dyan Cannon), the former girlfriend of the drug-lord Douvier (Robert Webber). Though it received a very mixed reception from critics, this, the sixth of the Pink Panther series, did very well at the box-office. Sadly, it was actor Peter Sellers' final Pink Panther performance before his death in 1980 (the later film, The Trail of Pink Panther was composed of outtakes from previous Pink Panther films). ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

I don't know why so many people rag on this movie. I thought it was hilarious. The scene going through the Lee Kee factory where Dreyfus is shooting at Clouseau or where Clouseau says "I will glide through the underworld like a shadow" are classics. Lots of pratfalls, plenty of classic Peter Sellers.
Peter Sellers should have stopped making these later pre-fabricated frauds from earlier Pink Panther classics. Dyan Cannon's acting in this movie was absolutely HORRIBLE ! Peter Sellers would die 4-years after making this movie (made in1978, died in 1982) - it's just too bad he felt compelled enough to want to do this pathetic crap !
