A world-famous soccer coach has been murdered and his priceless, legendary ring has been stolen - a ring set with the stunning diamond known as the "Pink Panther." The French government needs a master detective to solve the crime and recover the gem. But, he's not available, so they recruit none other than Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin). Who committed the crime: a stunning pop star, a soccer player, a Chinese assassin? And, can anyone solve the case? Clouseau and his partner, Ponton (Jean Reno), must unmask the murderer and keep their boss, Dreyfus (Kevin Kline ), from taking credit for the victory - all without bringing the French legal system to a screeching halt.
