It takes about a half-hour to accept Steve Martin as the idiotic Inspector Clouseau in Shawn Levy’s (hah!…Shawn Levy with a possessive credit!) The Pink Panther (Columbia, 2.10.06). But after you’re past this it’s pretty funny. Sony/Columbia won’t sell it right (what do they care?…it’s an MGM/UA leftover) and it probably won’t make any decent coin in the States, etc. (Europe, maybe.) But how come the IMDB doesn’t list Clive Owen’s cameo walk-on? He plays agent 006…half-goof, half-real…a kind of half-smoke signal sent to the Bond movie producers back when Panther was being shot (which was what…a year and a half ago?) to seriously think him over.
