The Pink Panther
I also saw what is considered Edwards' best known comedy: The Pink Panther. I wouldn't generally say that it's his best comedy, period. (That probably goes to Victor Victoria.)
The cast for The Pink Panther is recognizable by my standards. It stars David Niven, Capucine, Claudia Cardinale, Robert Wagner, and, of course, Peter Sellers. No surprise that Sellers is the focal point here, but he did have more leeway than the others.
And knowing Edwards' sense of humor, I knew what to expect. Basically it involves a somewhat silly concept getting blown out of proportion. Look, after a while, you start picking up small things.
To sum things up, The Pink Panther is entertaining but it gets too silly in parts. Also, the movie starts losing steam when Sellers isn't on screen. But if you need something to watch as a means of relaxing, The Pink Panther is the way to go.
My Rating: ****
