Amusing buddy-cop farce

Canada's two solitudes meet when 'by-the-book' English Toronto cop (Colm Feore) and 'loose cannon' French Montreal cop (Patrick Huard) are assigned to investigate a border-straddling (literally) murder. The plot revolves around hockey and the script is liberally laced with 'inside jokes' about the NHL, which are pretty funny but you'd need to follow the sport to get a lot of the humour. The leads are good, although the characters are pretty much 'buddy-cop' standards, as is the secondary cast (although even more 'standard'), but the situations that they find themselves in, and their responses to which, are exaggerated to the point of being almost a parody of the genre. Ironically, Rick Mercer, who often makes fun of American's miscomprehensions of Canada has a bit part in a film that essentially is one long string of Canadian stereotypes. The films may seem clever and well written to viewers who 'get' the hockey jokes, but viewers who don't may find it somewhat predictable, obscure, and silly.

Who's bad?

A movie with two languages ... french and english. And it's mixed, so different/multiple characters speak both languages. So you have to focus on what they say if you know both languages or on the subtitles if you have issues with at least one of those. But it's ok and it works, because it does feel more alive for being that way.

Speaking of more alive: we do get treated on some personal stuff of both protagonists. Some is not really necessary for the story, but it's there. And because it didn't have to be made for general audiences (it has an R rating in America), it does contain blood, profanity and even nudity. The latter is cut together in a very funny, yet sexy way. There are some bumps when it comes to the story, but the actors had so much fun with their roles, it really shines through to the audience. Enjoy this crazy ride ...

Reminiscent of Lethal Weapon, with a touch of Rush Hour

Bon Cop, Bad Cop (2006) This is a Canadian action comedy about two police officers - one from Ontario and one from Quebec, who reluctantly join forces to solve a murder. The dialogue is a mixture of English and French. This actually adds to the comedy and doesn't distract. It's a buddy cop movie reminiscent of Lethal Weapon, with a touch of Rush Hour. It's the perfect fusion of action and comedy. The film won two Genie Awards, four Canadian Comedy Awards and the 'billet d'or' (golden ticket) at Quebec's Jutra Awards (given to the film with the highest box-office success). The movie was not released theatrically outside Canada, which is too bad, as I believe it would have done well internationally. It fared well enough in Canada to warrant a sequel. It's a very well put together film. I'm looking forward to watching the sequel soon.
