Steve Martin steps into the gumshoes of Inspector Jacques Clouseau, the character made famous by actor Peter Sellers, and does an admirable job as the clumsy crime fighter on the trail of a stolen diamond called The Pink Panther.
Why Is The Pink Panther Rated PG?
The Pink Panther is rated PG for occasional crude and suggestive humor and language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Pink Panther...
Slapstick violence is a staple of this comedic film with characters being hit, electrocuted, run over, dragged behind vehicles and attacked by piranhas. Others run into objects and fall down stairs. On a more serious note, two characters are murdered, one with a poison dart and one by a bullet to the head. The script also contains several scenes of sexual innuendo and low cut female clothing. An older man prepares to take a sexual enhancement pill in anticipation of the evening’s events. Another character misconstrues a couple’s activities when he sees one of them performing the Heimlich maneuver. Several verbal exchanges involve suggestive subject matter. A few profanities and a brief portrayal of flatulence are also included.
