4 Some gems from the Pink Panther collectionTibleyBobley | 15/05/2007 | See all TibleyBobley's reviews (56)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer Top 10 Books Reviewer There are five films in this collection. The first one (The Pink Panther) is quite funny, the second one (A Shot in the Dark) is funnier, the third one (The Pink Panther Strikes Again) is the funniest film ever made (that's just my opinion), the fourth one (Revenge of the Pink Panther) is very funny but not as funny as the third and the fifth one (Trail of the Pink Panther) is hardly funny at all, being a mere disjointed and incoherent montage of some of the funnier episodes in the preceding films. The sixth disc has the special features: documentaries and cartoons.I purchased this collection in order to get "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" which is not available on its own for region 2 DVD players. It's my all-time favourite comedy that I watch whenever it's broadcast on television. Even though I've watched it many times, it still renders me helpless: a rocking, heaving wet mass of gasping tears and peculiar choking noises. Really, I would have paid the collection price for the one film. The other three are a bonus of which "The Revenge" is most especially appreciated. It's just a shame that "Return of the Pink Panther" isn't included in this box. I've just ordered it separately.It seems an extraordinary insult to give this collection any fewer than the full five stars. It's all relative and relative to the average film available on DVD today, the first two discs in this box rate rather highly, the third deserves a whole constellation of stars and the fourth is easily worth the full five. The last two discs are a different matter - so there's a dilemma. After careful consideration and with great regret I'm deducting one star because "The Trail" is really quite bad, "The Return" is missing and the documentaries and cartoons seemed superfluous (but that's just my opinion again).
