The theater was packed with women—which is a good thing. I'm really happy that women are finally going out to see movies that their husband and boyfriends might not be interested in. Everybody seemed to have a very good time. The movie itself is kind of uneven—half sitcom, half soap opera.
It's interesting to compare the old films with the new. Obviously the original Pink Panther films were groundbreaking, but Peter Sellers also drew deeper, richer laughs. On the other hand, there are more laughs from Steve Martin. Jack and his friend Christy enjoyed it.
