Steve Martin Already Cooking Up Bad Ideas for 'Pink Panther 3'

We're only about 10 days away from The Pink Panther 2: A Pox on Your House, and it is with a heavy heart that I report the formerly funny Steve Martin wants a third movie in the series.

According to WENN, Martin convinced the film's producers to throw in a wedding, because anytime his movies contain weddings, they do well. "I said, 'I have to tell you that every movie I've done that ends in a wedding or holding a baby has been a hit," Martin explained. Clouseau will apparently marry the Emily Mortimer character, Nicole, in the sequel.

And because his raping of Peter Sellers' Jacques Clouseau is no longer a bachelor, Martin's patting himself on the back about his remarkable achievement. "I do believe we've taken the Pink Panther somewhere else and, in a sense, made it our own."

What happened to this guy? Seriously? He made The Pink Panther his own? Did he also make Cheaper by the Dozen his own?

There's a clue in Martin's comments about a possible threequel - a clue even Clouseau could sniff out - about how unfunny and completely irrelevant Steve Martin has become. "It would obviously open with Clouseau's honeymoon," admits Martin, "him taking Nicole across the threshold and she's wearing arm pads and a helmet!"

Nope. Not funny. Not original. Not interesting. In fact, the only interesting thing about any of these movies is where Steve Martin's shame went. Perhaps if he finds it soon enough, he might also be able to track down his sense of purpose and his obligation to an audience to entertain.

It's official. Steve Martin is a douche bag.

These days it's just the syphillis talking, mostly.

I am most amused that Mr. Boyd would sully the fine standing of his own website by the inclusion of such things. Lesser (hell even first rate) reviewers would simply scoff and toss this to the side but not Boyd. He embraces the train wreck and makes our eyes bleed with his own at the mere threat that yet another piece of crap awaits us.

The sadest part is that most people that will see this movie have probably never seen the originals so they do not know how much Steve Martin is doing a terrible rip-off of Seller's classic character. I never saw the Steve Martin Pink Panther movie. Based on the previews, it looked terrible and Steve Martin should be embarrased.

Who does Steve Martin think he is, taking a raw dump on his legacy? ME???

I have to admit, I enjoy reading about bad movies. It is very entertaining. For instance, reviews for The Love Guru and Disaster Movie (two movies I don't intend to ever see) were among some of the most memorable reviews I read last year. As for Steve Martin, I can always go back and watch Planes Trains and Automobiles.

It's sad. He used to be so funny.

This movie will be awesome! You people have to realize that the Original Pink Panther movies are getting kind of old (although Cato is still hilarious!). These new Pink Panther movies make everything a lot more modern. Steve Martin is hilarious as Inspector Clouseau. He is not doing a rip-off of the Sellers' version. First of all, Sellers and Martin aren't the only ones to play Clouseau:

Peter Sellers
Alan Arkin
Roger Moore
Steve Martin

They were all hilarious as Clouseau (okay, maybe not so much Roger Moore), and that is what makes these movies worth going to see.

I'm sorry but Martin is doing a ripoff and it's a poor one when compared to Sellers' work. Some things really ought to just be left alone, I can do with fewer bastardizations of my fond childhood memories.

I actually enjoyed the new Steve Martin movies, almost as much as the original Peter Sellers movies. Martin isn't just copycatting the old films. He is making them his own. If you'd rather stick with the originals, that's your perogative. But the series is being recreated for a new generation, and I hope it does well.

I have watched all the old Peter Sellers movies with the Pink Panther and now after watching Steve Martin in Pink Panther, I find the original Peter Sellers movies dull and lacking in humour.

Well done Steve Martin, I still laugh after watching your Pink Panser diamond movies! You are a geneous!

Lets hope Steve Martin can contine the Pink Panther Legend to versions 3, 4 and beyond!
I would like to know who will play "Son of the Inspector" as in the original Pink panther movies!

I'm with Olga, Steve is a legend! I would really like to see OLGA KURYLENKO in the Pink Panther 3 movie as the new English and behaviour teacher!!!!!!!!! More Hamburger and womeniser talk!

Get some more baterries attached to inspectors nuts!! hee....classic!

GOOD ONE!

I did not care for the first Steve Martin Pink Panther when I first saw it, but I watched it again with my kids and it is hysterical. It has become our favorite movie to watch together, and we constantly quote lines in our terrible french accents. I thought #2 was even funnier. Keep it up Steve - you have brought a new generation of fans to a classic film line. Peter Sellers would be proud!

Steve Martin as Pink Panther is AWESOME!! I laughed several times. The Old pink panther movies are dated, nothing we would enjoy today. Pink Panther 2 was funny without having to be vulgar, Steve Martin was good and I hope to see a 3rd one. Good clean humor, if anybody is a douchebag is one who would judge a comedy so harshly. Get a life!!!

I dislike how you are demeaning him. You can't expect everyone to like everything. I loved the movies he made and I agree 100% with

I can't wait to see the new Pink Panther
Olya, you are not alone i despise hate websites where they discredit peoples careers because a couple bad eggs can't see how funny he really is compared to the not so funny Peter Sellers.

Yah, you're all lamos. Lol o well, I love seeing debate, controversy, and diverse oppinions. Eh, I think he's awesome in the Pink Panther. Seriously, even me, a teenager, enjoys it.

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRachel Lee

I have watched ALL Pink Panthers, and they are superb. I do not understand why reviewers hate it so much, it is just a brilliant movie. Definitely going to be a day one watch for me, Imagine 3D, i do not know how it would work but it would be cool.
I disagree with you J (first comment if you dont know who it is), he is an amazing actor, one of the funniest in my opinion. But no one will (in my opinion again) be as funny as Jim Carrey, i can watch his movies 10 times and still laugh at every joke.

II have never been a fan of characters getting married. Just think of how many series were killed because of this. I dream of Jennie, Who's the Boss?, Mork and Mindy etc... It just kills the formula.

But I must question the notion that because Inspector Jacques Clouseau is no longer a bachelor that the character has been taken somewhere else. Has he forgotten that Clouseau was married in the original film?

Tuesday, January 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSean

well I never really knew steve martin made up the last part of the pink panther 2! this is shocking! although i watched the first and second pink panther movie,i have 2 say they were very funny! i heard rumors that the producers and the director will make a pink panther 3 movie,but they want a younger person to play clouseau,cuz steve is to old to be playing a funny character! well i'll oppose against those rumors:steve martin plays a superb role as clouseau.oh and by the way to sean:when you asked has he forgotten that he was married in the first film, he wasn't ,check yourself on the dvd ,or if not then go on you yube

u know, if steve martin is cooking up lots of ideas in the movie then why not let him produce it?don't get the wrong idea. also are the producers and the directors getting sick of clouseau?i'm asking this cuz he made up a few parts to the movie that were not originally created by the director

i want there to be a pink panther 3,4,5,,6,7,8,9.10 and further lollllllll just kidding i think they should make a third one but the end has to be a fitting end where its the final movie if they continue to make more than a third ill faint seriously! itll ruin everything,ppl these days always want to ruin the classics

Thursday, February 25, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterpeter

I was skeptical about a remake of the Peter Sellers' classics. After recently viewing both DVDs I like Steve's version even more. Mr. Martin is still as funny as ever. It is no small "honor" (pronounce the h, just as he does in ze movie!) to be "honored" by the Kennedy Center as Steve was a few years back. I have watched him as Clouseau several times over and continue to laugh. I like the new direction of the character. Everyone knows this type of character in real life----a "pro-noid" as John Cleese (Dreyfus in the sequel) calls the new Clouseau during an off-camera interview. The movie relates the small truth that even a bumbler can be a savant and brilliant hero! He is "oblique"---as the character Ponton says in the sequel to Pepperidge. But Martin is a bit oblique, too. And a continual success ---in many directions! Bravo, Inspector! Please, Steve---make a third one!!! I love you!

The Pink Panthers with S. Martin are funny and I can t wait for the third one. It is of course different than those with Sellers, but definitely not worse. It s the nostalgia talking off you guys :)

Monday, June 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJan

i dont care
i like him as inspecter clouseau!

Sunday, June 20, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterme

I am not a fan of Steve Martin so did not expect much from these movies. I had seen the first few pink panther movies and don't expect much from re-boots or sequels to old movies. I did not want to see him wreck them.

He however is really funny in them and i was pleasently surprised. Having re-watched the original and slowly working my way through the rest i really don't see what people say about Peter Sellars as a comedy genius. I find these new ones much funnier and entertaining and definately better than the last ones of the original series which really became a joke. When re-watching them again i see heaps of poor acting especially in timing and re-used gags. I realised that my momory of them from when i was younger was better then the movies themselves.

by the way Peter Sellars is not the only one who played him Roger Moore did briefly, Alan Arkin did as well (Inspector Clouseau),and others if you count the guys who played him in Trail of the Pink Panther.

I hate when someone brings a show back and doesn't pull it off and while the character is a bit different (I don't think Steve is neccessarily straight out copying Peter) I think these movies do pull it off.

The Wedding comment sounds bogus i'd like to see something more official where that's qouted. I am not sure about Clouseau being married again but it could be pulled off. We will see if it is successful if it eventuates.

Those who do not like the new Pink Panther with Steve Martin I think are missing the boat. The art of slapstick comedy is hilarious in these movies. Don't compare the new with the old. Would you want to compare your second wife to your first one? Look at the strengths of each. Focus on the positive. Sure, I miss the purity of Clouseau looking for Cato and the fights ending with the telephone ringing...but that was the "first wife." I absolutely LOVE the chase scene at the end of Pink Panther 2 with the other super detectives falling all over each other throughout the chase. I don't remember seeing too much of that with the "first wife.' I say...KEEP 'EM COMING...I want to see Pink Panther 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...as many as they can produce!!! LOVE IT!

You people who haven't seen the pink panther one and two shouldn't be bashing on Steve martin. The movies are great and I can't wait for pink panther 3. I rarely buy DVD'S, but i loved pink panther and bought myself the movies.
