Stars: Steve Martin, Beyonce Knowles, Kevin Kline

They say: The haphazard detective must solve the murder of a famous football coach, and find out who stole the infamous Pink Panther diamond.

We say: Steve Martin takes over the role of Inspector Clouseau, in this prequel to the 1964 Peter Sellers original. Martin is not Sellars. But you already knew that. Which does make you wonder why he'd accept the role - given that he was always on a hiding to nothing. That said, if you take the film for what it is - slapstick comedy with an edge - then it's actually not too bad. Die hard Clouseau and Sellars fans will, doubtless, disagree.
