Sadly, I haven't seen the original movies.  Judging from the trailer, the new Pink Panther looks kind of funny but pretty needless. 

I do like that bit where the inspector falls through the ceiling, though.  "We need fresh tow-els in Room 24." *ding!*  :)

I loved the old movies. Went and bought the boxset when it was released a year or two ago. Really sucked how they didn't include "The Return of the Pink Panther" in the set though.

Anyway the new movie I haven't seen any trailers of but I have heard a bit about it. Personally I think it's just being made to make money but I may change my mind after seeing it. :-\

I saw the new pink panther and thought is was good. I saw the first old one and thought it was good.

I've pretty much seen all of them, even some of the older spin-offs involving his son.. I don't see how Steve Martin could ever live up to Peter Sellers, but meh.. maybe I'll be surprised.. :)

Yeah I don't like the idea of Steve Martin, especially considering he isn't a Brit. :-\

Steve's accent is the greatest though. (Don't remember the original accent though.)

I saw the original Pink Panther, it's hilarious! Hercule Poirot is so funny. Are there any Rowan Atkinson fans? His movie, "Johny Enlgish" was a riot, I loved it, had me laughing so hard. Rowan Atkinson is Mr. Bean. I hear he plays Voldemort in Harry Potter 4.

According to IMDB, Ralph Fiennes plays Voldemort.

Don't remember the old ones.  I should check them out again.

The new one is okay.  A lot of slapstick comedy, which I don't really like a whole lot.  But Steve Martin, albeit not quite Peter Sellers, seems to fit the role rather well... in his own fashion.  His accent is quite good.  There were a few moments in the film which were really funny, though.  Not disappointed... but didn't quite live up to my expectations.

I have not seen this new one, but I love the old ones, and Peter Sellers is one of my favorite actors.  I also recommend Being There and Doctor Strangelove: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb if you would like to see more Sellers.
