Son of the Pink Panther is a 1993 comedy and crime drama film and the final installment in the original "Franchise/ThePinkPanther" franchise, as well as the last film directed by Creator/BlakeEdwards. Just like the last one, this film once again tried to continue the series with a new bafoonish lead. This time, Creator/RobertoBenigni plays Jacques Gambrelli, the equally-inept son of Clouseau.
