Performers, Cast and Crew:
The eighth and last entry in Blake Edwards's long-running series, SON OF THE PINK PANTHER stars Roberto Benigni (LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL) as the illegitimate son of the benighted Inspector Clouseau. Princess Yasmin, a member of the royal family of Lugash, is kidnapped while on vacation in France by terrorist Hans (Robert Davi), who demands a $100 million ransom, and Chief of Police Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) is called in to handle the case. Hans makes the mistake of being involved in a crash with Jacques Gambrelli, the bumbling illegitimate son of Clouseau, who manages to catch sight of the princess. Gambrelli also crashes into Dreyfus, who manifests his familiar Tourette's symptoms after meeting the son of the man who so often pushed him to the brink of insanity. After confirming his identity, the police chief sends Gambrelli on what he hopes will be a suicidal mission to find the princess in Lugash. Begnini is charming as the heir to the legacy of ineptitude.
Roberto Benigni inherits the comic mantle of everyone's favorite bumbling detective as the illegitimate son of Inspector Clouseau assigned to rescue a beautiful princess. In the tradition of his infamous father, he wreaks havoc every step of the way.
