CLUMSY HAS A COLOR ALL ITS OWN.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) tries to find a kidnapped princess in the country of Lugash, but the inept, young policeman (Roberto Benigni) aiding him looks eerily familiar. When director Blake Edwards decided to make a ninth entry in the series, several actors returned in their old parts but are less than engaging; that’s also true for Benigni who has a few good scenes but can’t match Peter Sellers. Not a pleasant experience, although Bobby McFerrin’s performance of the theme is creative.
1993-U.S. 93 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Blake Edwards. Cast: Roberto Benigni (Jacques Gambrelli), Herbert Lom (Charles Dreyfus), Claudia Cardinale (Maria Gambrelli), Burt Kwouk, Debrah Farentino, Robert Davi.
