Shawn Levy

Director of family movies like Cheaper by the Dozen.

The Pink Panther (2006) -- I haven't seen the Blake Edwards original, but I hope it was funnier than this if it spawned nine sequels.  Steve Martin occasionally gets a laugh with his French accent joke, but nothing else really works.  Beyonce proves one more time that she can't act, and even Kevin Kline doesn't do anything special.  This is one of those "comedy" movies where it just kind of ambles along with whatever boring plot there is while forgetting to actually be funny.  Probably doesn't even work for its target audience (I think) of ten-year-olds.
