If you liked the first two, here’s another. If you didn’t, well you should know better by now. This being the third instalment in the kids' comedy spy-spoof series says a lot for the enduring engagement of family-friendly slapstick. There’s little new here that Peter Sellers’ Inspector Clouseau didn’t trip over in The Pink Panther, or Leslie Nielsen didn’t knock down in The Naked Gun, but the script sticks to the slapstick schtick.

Screenwriter William Davies has to tread carefully, not pushing the implicit conservatism too far: English is skeptical about women in the military, for instance, but eventually learns to move with the times.

The pace is brisk, the jokes make up for in quantity what they lack in quality and the film never resorts to sleaze or meanness to earn its laughs. Knock yourself out.

Try as he might, Rowan Atkinson's slapstick pratfalls and rubbery expressions can't stretch over the feature's brazen attempt to rehash past glories.
