Headscratchers / The Pink Panther

Go To

  • In The Pink Panther Strikes Again, Dreyfus owns a very precise disintegrator ray that he can activate from Germany to blast a precise building back in New York City. Dude, if your machine is that precise and that powerful, why not simply disintegrating Clouseau ?
    • Targeting a building isn't the same as targeting a specific individual, particularly when Dreyfuss can't guarantee exactly where Clouseau is going to be at a specific time to aim the weapon.
  • Okay, it has been brought up on the Wild Mass Guessing part, but it really belongs here: WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED THAT MAKES THAT DREYFUS IS BACK AFTER THE PINK PANTHER STRIKES AGAIN?
    • My theory was always that most of "Strikes Again" was some nightmare, or hallucination that Dreyfuss was having while locked up in the asylum.
    • Personally, I just assume that "Strikes Again" takes place after "Revenge", and the later films done after Sellers' death aren't valid at all, considering such details as Dreyfuss being in charge again.

    • I always assumed that the deathray's effects were only temporary, due to an (unintentional?) oversight on Fassbender's part. Presumably the UN building came back as well.

How well does it match the trope?
