    Has anyone seen The Pink Panther? I love Steve Martin, but I was really turned off by the previews of this movie. He just didn’t seem to fit the character very well.

      Typically, when a movie is delayed as many times as this has, it’s not a good sign. Metacritic gives it a 39/100.

      I’ve said this so many times my wife is stick of hearing it: Steve Martin is an awesome actor and author, but he is no Inspector Clouseau. The very reason that the original Clouseau was so good was because the actor, <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000634/">Peter Sellers</a>, had pushed so far over the genius spectrum that he was quite insane. Take a look at the flick <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0352520/">The Life and Death of Peter Sellers</a> for some details.

      Many other British actors/artists of Sellers’ time suffered similar problems – <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0589711/">Spike Milligan</a> was bio-polar and had major depression problems, many others turned to drink, etc.
