'Pink Panther 2' transforms Boston into Paris

Steve Martin stars in the made-in-Boston sequel, "The Pink Panther 2," hitting theaters Friday, Feb 6.

Following the formula of the string of less-than-stellar locally-shot films--like "The Women," "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" and "Bride Wars"--the film was made in the Hub to take advantage of our state's insanely low tax breaks ... but set in another city.

Get this, "Pink Panther 2" attempts to transform Boston into Paris. How do you say 'stinks' in French?

In the flick, Martin's Jacques Clouseau teams up with a squad of bumbling International detectives in an attempt to stop a globe-trotting thief who specializes in stealing historical artifacts.

"Pink Panther 2" was shot in Boston, Chelsea, Bedford, Westwood and Winchester.

I live in Winchester and I totally missed out on that, haha.

I remember the filming and blogged about it here.

Because of the film crew, me and my co-workers had trouble getting into our building.

Thanks Anali!

Anali's First Amendment is actually one of the first blogs I read on a regular basis when I moved back to Boston back in 2007. Thank you for consistently putting out great content and inspiring the local blog community.

Much support,
Sam B.

I totally didn't even realize that this was filmed here locally. Where can we see what movies are being filmed in the area?
