Pink Panther, The (2006)
Inspector Jacques Clouseau, a name that strikes fear into the hearts of criminals everywhere--and anyone else he comes across as well. Maybe it''s because his deductive powers are so inadequate, his grasp of the obvious so elusive, his command of the language so severely limited and his physical coordination so completely lacking. But while his approach may be unorthodox and often confounding, he always manages to solve the crime--in his own fashion. At least until now. World famous soccer coach Yves Gluant has just led Team France to victory over Team China. Surrounded by grateful adoring fans and his beautiful lover, the international pop star Xania, Gluant is felled by a poisoned dart.

Cracking the case falls to Chief Inspector Dreyfus, who is up for the prestigious Medal of Honor--for the seventh time.

One by one, Clouseau narrows his search and tracks down the most likely suspects. They include Xania, a spurned soccer star, a millionaire casino owner and a flirtatious P.R. publicist. Clouseau''s process is fascinating, if harrowingly circuitous. But he never loses his focus, his purpos

En route, a plane malfunction causes them to make an unexpected pit-stop in New Jersey--the first time Chris has been back in 10 years. Chris'' plans to only stay the night are detoured when he runs into Jamie working at the local bar. Suddenly faced with the chance to undo the past and "seal the deal" with the "just friends" girl of his dreams, Chris finds himself postponing Paris. This sets off a chain of events in which Chris tries to woo Jamie, all the while distracting the suspicious Samantha.
