Plot Outline

The world’s most unusual criminologist, Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau fights for his life and for the future of all mankind. Paul Dreyfus, once his long-suffering boss, now a raving lunatic, holds the world at bay with the ultimate weapon – The Doomsday Machine. Blissfully unaware of the army of deadly assassins gunning for him, or that the beautiful girl who seeks him out is actually a Russian agent, Clouseau incredibly stumbles and slips by every attack. At the last moment when it seems Clouseau is out of luck, he fires from the hip and hits – our funnybone!
