THE world's most inept detective returns to the screen in this modern slapstick comedy. France's come-from-behind victory in the World Cup turns tragic when the team's coach (played by Jason Stahtham) is murdered during a post-game celebration. His pop-star girlfriend Xanis (played by Beyonce' Knowles) was standing by his side as he went down and in the chaos that follows a diamond ring he gave her is stolen. This ring contains one of the world's largest and most valuable jewels, known as The Pink Panther. Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kevin Kline) of the Paris police force vows to put his best man on the case. However, somehow the astoundingly clumsy and consistently lucky Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin) gets the case.

Jean Reno also stars as Clouseau's assistant in this updated variant on the comedy that made Peter Sellers a star in the United States. The film also stars Emily Mortimer, Kristin Chenoweth, Roger Rees and William Abadie; leading man Steve Martin also wrote the screenplay.
