Character mistake: In the film, five items are stolen: the Magna Carta, the Turin Shroud, the Imperial Sword of Japan, the Pope's ring and the Pink Panther diamond. When Alfred Molina's character is challenged that they had found everything but the Pink Panther, he protests that 3 out of 4 is not bad, that's 75%. In fact, they had found 4 out of 5 or 80%.
Continuity mistake: When Clouseau is going to meet the "Dream Team" for the first time, he walks across the hall with Ponton and Nicole. We can see the cage from where the Pink Panther diamond was stolen as they approach it and it is clear that it is empty, but in the next shot the door opens and we see the detectives already inside the cage.
Continuity mistake: During the finale, the dumbwaiter opens and you can see a large decorative napkin on a plate. But when Clouseau jumps into the dumbwaiter, the napkin has disappeared and a bun is now on the plate.
Continuity mistake: During the restaurant scene in Rome, the Inspector insists on selecting the wine. He picks the first bottle from the middle of the wine rack. In the next shot, the slot is full and he places the bottle in a higher slot. In the third shot, he picks up another bottle from the middle of the rack.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie when Sonia was trying to escape, after Clouseau figures out that she stole the pink diamond. Sonia Is trying to escape and runs up through the kitchen to the second floor and is passing through the balcony. In one quick shot her red dress is exposing her right shoulder when in the rest of the scene it exposes her left shoulder.
Revealing mistake: When we see Clouseau hanging on the chandelier on the CCTV at Alonso's mansion, you can see it is not Steve Martin but his stunt double.
