Steve Martin steps into the role of bumbling Inspector Clouseau made famous by the late Peter Sellers in this family-friendly remake of THE PINK PANTHER, which recently bowed on DVD (Sony Home Ent., $28.95). Say what you will about the success or failure of Martins wild and crazy interpretation, but the title sequence from Kurtz and Friends Animation is true to form. Judge for yourself, as the Animated Trip featurette covers the animated opening credits with interviews with director Bob Kurz, animator Eric Goldberg and editor Ken Smith.
In addition, an alternate opening title sequence in CGI, can be viewed with or without commentary from director Shawn Levy.
Other bonus features in this special edition include:* Cracking the Case doc* THINK PINK commercial for Sweet and Low from Hornet that features the animated Pink Panther.* Deconstructing the Panther and Sleuth-cams on Set featurettes* Beyonce Knowles music video: "Check On It."
