Steve Martin reprises his role as intrepid-if-bumbling French police detective, Inspector Jacques Clouseau. When legendary treasures from around the world are stolen, Chief Inspector Dreyfus (John Cleese) is forced to assign Clouseau a team of international detectives and experts charged with catching the thief and retrieving the stolen artefacts. Martin is joined by original co-stars Jean Reno (as Ponton, his partner) and Emily Mortimer (as Nicole, the object of his awkward affections). The investigative dream team is played by Andy Garcia, Alfred Molina, Yuki Matsuzaki (Letters from Iwo Jima) and Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The story is set against the gorgeous scenery of Paris and Rome.
