Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes where he unwittingly separates a young boy from his father and must help the two come back together. On the way he discovers France, bicycling, and true love, among other things.
When the coach of the France soccer team is killed by a poisoned dart in the stadium in the end of a game, and his expensive and huge ring with the diamond Pink Panther disappears, the ambitious Chief Insp. Dreyfus assigns the worst police inspector Jacques Clouseau to the case. His intention is to give a diversion to the press, while he uses his best men to chase the killer and thief. He assigns Gendarme Gilbert Ponton to work with Clouseau and inform each step of the investigation. When Clouseau is nominated with honor to the highest prize in France, Dreyfus decides to humiliate Clouseau and take him out of the case. However Clouseau has already solved the mystery. Written by

Inspector Clouseau entering the motel room with Ponton to discover only one bed to share is a direct tip of the hat to Steve Martin's character Neil Page having to share a room with John Candy's Del Griffith in Planes Tranes and Automobiles 1984. Even Inspector Clouseau's pajamas share a striking resemblance to the ones worn by Candy. See more »

Chief Inspector Dreyfus:
Ah, Clouseau. Yes, well, the first time I ever heard that name, uh, Clouseau was just a little, um... nobody, a police officer in some little village far outside of Paris.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus:
He was the village idiot as far as I could tell.

The opening credits reflect the functions of the credited persons, for instance, Pink Panther as the orchestra director (at the music credits), standing before a photo camera (director of photography), etc. See more »
What a waste of time and talent...... Kline, Martin, Reno... They
should have known better, considering their age, talent and somewhat
rich past. In this new Panther NOTHING works! Everything is SO mediocre
and banal.... Sad to see Martin finally sank to fart jokes! Y'know the
rest.... It gives one goose-pimples just to hear the actors speaking in
English with Frech accents! There is also this very embarrassing scene
where Closeau tries to learn the right pronunciations.... Man, c'est
horrible! Why do they churn out such idiotic films in nowadays
Hollywood? Do they have no talent left or do they think we the audience
such stupid mushrooms????? Avoid at any cost!
