Pink Panther

You mean the shitty Steve Martin remake of The Pink Panther did well enough for them to do a shitty sequel? Really?

H and I had a long discussion about this. Specifically, what the hell Steve Martin is thinking...

We decided that many actors would simply rather be working than not working.

But Steve Martin is a funny guy, surely he could develop some OTHER property that uses his actual talents. DOes someone somewhere thing something is actually MISSING from the Peter Sellers Pink Panther that needs to be improved on? Even Roberto Benigni couldn't do a job that came close in HIS "remake". But, ah.. I preach to the choir. Hollywood is money and as long as the money flows the remakes get made.

on behalf od martin, he is known for doing crappy movies for two reasons. first , he can use the money to buy art. second, he can use the money to help finance movies well made based on his writing or make his own movies, or help others make movies.

he does know when he is making crap. it is very calculated crap.

steve martin i love
pink panther movies i love
put them together and you get one of the worst franchises in history.
and it did indeed make money.
we had our print for 8 weeks, which is a long time in the two and gone 21st century.
the chipmunks lasted longer. but it was ten times worse.
welcome to the future!

Please do not discuss the movies Steve Martin has done over the last several years, it saddens me.
