Pink Saturday - Review: The Pink Panther 2

People! Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Putting out for Presentation.









Yesterday afternoon Johnny and I went to see The Pink Panther 2, a movie just released. We've always loved the story of The Pink Panther--a huge diamond--that keeps getting stolen only to be recovered by an inept inspector, Jacques Clouseau.





It stars Steve Martin and there was a good bit of laughing--LOUD laughing--in the theater. It's a clean film with no violence, profanity, or sex scenes.

I hear people say that this is the type of film they want to spend their money on, so I'm letting you know. I feel that's it's worth the admission price. I give it a big thumbs UP!

Oh you brought back fond memories of my Pink Panther's toy. During my teenage years, I had this toy on my office desk and every morning my pink panther will be in different position cause its legs, hands and tail are bendable. My colleagues love to bend the pink panther in all patterns...lol. Finally, one morning someone stole him...sobs....

Someone else today said it was an excellent movie...will take some of the grands to see it.
Thanks for the tip and
Happy Pink Saturday.

"Morning Sally,
I love the old Pink Panther movies. Hubby and I aren't big movie buffs these days but maybe we'll check it out. Love the pink!

Blessings,
Sandi

Sally, Your pink post has me ready to relax and take in a movie! Hmmmm...just me and a bucket of Popcorn (extra butter) alone in a theatre, Snowcaps tucked in my purse for later, Hmmmm....Could make for a WONDERFUL me day!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

This is nice to know, Sally. I saw the previews and they didn't appeal to me. Of course I'm not much of a Steve Martin fan. AND--I always struggle with newer versions of old movies that I love. BUT--glad you liked it. I should give it a chance!!!

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

So glad to read your review. I'll put that on the "remember to rent dvd" list :-)

Glad to hear that this is a decent movie. Steve and I just watched the last Pink Panther movie, on tv a couple of weeks ago. They actually finished it after Peter Sellers had died. They used bits and pieces of cuts from the previous films. David Niven was in it, and was so ill from throat cancer, that Rich Little dubbed his voice.

By-the-way...I had no idea that Percy had been dognapped until I got the text message on my phone, last night! I'm hoping that my readers will flood Cliffs blog with demands for his safe and timely return! (With a bagful of New York bagels and cheesecake, to soothe my frazzled nerves.)

Morning Pink Smiling One! Oh, I just love Steve Martin and I'm sure this movie is a hoot!
Thanks for popping in to see Chloe Dawn's Pinkness.
Be a sweetie,

Bridget said...

Hi Sally, I'm glad there is something worth seeing. I'll try to catch it next week while I'm in Utah. I don't think there is going to be much of anything else to do given the weather (brrr!) I plan on catching up on my reading and maybe doing some quilting if I'm lucky!
Hugs, Bridget

Hi Sally - Thanks for the review of the film - I do enjoy the Pink Pather actually I love the music that goes with it too.

I've picked a verse out of the Bread of life box for you and this is what it says:-

Psalm 16:8 "I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved." God bless you, Judith

Sally, I am glad to hear that you give the movie glowing reviews. Our movie critic panned the movie here and said he was so bored by it that he almost fell asleep. I suppose it wasn't racey enough for him. I can't believe that you don't like Godiva! Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Robyn

Happy Pink Saturday Sally You know as a child I saw my first Pink Panther movie, and ...................I was sooo disapointed that it was not about the cartoon!! I have never watched a pink panther movie since! I just never got over my disapointment.

Thanks for the review, I think I'll get past my disapointment and go see it! lol!!!

Deanna said...

Hi Sally,
glad to hear that you endorse this film. The hubby and I had stopped going to the movies because we never knew what was going to show onscreen. Now we just rent films that we know are family worthy.

Have a great Pink Saturday!
Deanna :D

My husband had to keep telling me to be quiet because I couldn't stop cackling (laughing so loudly) in the movie theater. You know when there's always that one person who is so loud?...Well, this time it was me! Steve Martin is a genius! Reminds me of the male version of Lucy! Thumbs up! It's worth a good laugh!

Kathy said...

My husband and I have great memories of seeing the original Pink Panther films years ago with precious friends. I want to see the new one for old times sake - thanks for the good review!

Joy said...

I usually like Steve Martin in just about anything I see him in but have been borrowing more and more DVD's from the library and
this will go on that list :)

Killlashandra said...

I'm sure Steve Martin will be a wonderful pink panther, but the originals always leave me in stitches too. :)
