'Pink Panther 2' - Minus Beyoncé

As if the first one wasn't bad enough, they're giving us a second one.

I like Steven Martin most of the time. Shopgirl was a quiet, quaint, absorbing little film, and he's restrained performance in it was unlike much of anything he'd done before. But Peter Sellers he is not! This is one franchise that should have been left untouched.

Those who haven't seen the Peter Sellers originals should make every effort to do so. It's Sellers at his peak, right after Lolitaand immediately preceding Dr. Strangelove (both directed by another master, Stanley Kubrick). You can check out the 3 film set by clicking HERE.

The Steve Martin sequel hits theaters in February 2009. Beyoncé wisely sat this one out.

    The first was a stinker. It baffles me why there's another. It just comes across as a pointless excercise. I hope it flops at the B.O. :^)

    @ I.W. - Pee Yoo!

    @ echo - I didn't see the first and have zero interest in seeing it, so I'll have to take your word for it that it's a stinker :o) I don't plan on seeing the sequel either.
