How can an idiot be a policeman?

I know this is really unimportant, but I have to find out -- does anyone know if Steve Martin's new Pink Panther movie is really as bad as the trailer makes it appear?

I am a huge fan of Monsieur Martin -- I couldn't possibly mention all of his great work, but here are five: The Jerk, Parenthood, L.A. Story, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and The Spanish Prisoner (not to mention his stand-up and books!) -- but this just looks awful.

How can Martin (with Jean Reno and Kevin Kline, as well) do this? Please tell me there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Please tell me it's not another "Sgt. Bilko." Or "Looney Tunes: Back in Action." Or "Bringing Down the House." Hmmm. His art collection must be huge now.
