Bon Cop, Bad Cop

Bon Cop, Bad Cop is a Canadian buddy cop film in which a Quebec cop and an Ontario cop are brought together to solve a series of murders of key figures in a professional hockey league when a body shows up on the Quebec-Ontario border. And, Im told, this is also the first Bi-Lingual film in Canadian cinema history.

Im not sure whether thats a good or a bad thing, but the trailer looks like fun.

    I just saw the advanced screening tonight and it was great! I saw it in french (There were french subtitles during the english parts and none during the french part) and I think that the english audience wont appreciate it as much. In any case, I HIGHLY recommend it.

    I saw this movie today and thought it was hilarious. I haven’t laughed this hard at a movie in a long time. I saw it in english (sub titles for the french parts). The main characters work so well together it is brilliant. This is a movie I think everyone will like.

    this movie was really funny. i recommend it to anyone that loves action and comedy.. saw the english version with french subtitles.. was done perfectly.. i guess us montrealers can sometimes get along with torontonians

    Fantastic movie, I just loved it. I have not enjoyed a movie as much as this one in sometime. Brilliant. Look forward to Bon Cop Bad Cop 2

    Theres a lot of racist jokesespecially against English people.
    The best actor in the movie is absolutely Colm Feoreas for the restbad acting, bad directing and bad music score and so on Through the whole movie theres almost nothing else besides David Bouchard (Patrick Huard) bitching and showing off like the rest of Canada and the United States are a bunch of primitives besides Quebecers who keep on making fun of the dead (no respect at all). Not to forget the stupid guy at the morgue. For a movie that tried to open its horizons for incorporating some English, theres still too much of that annoying French Canadian mentality. As for the bad guy in this movie, they took a French Canadian actor who is suppose to be an English Canadian, but still speaks with a French accent. I dont know you tell me

    Colm Feore was very good playing his role. As for the rest of the movie, Im generous enough for giving a nice ( 1/10 )

    what racist jokes? against whom?
    Come on! Its was equal. Do you really think that all french cops are that incompetents? Well, we dont think that all your OPP are so stuck-up
    Its a really funny movie for all (over 16!) that exagerate the eternal conflict between squarredheads and frogs..

    Il vaut mieux en rire que den brailler! (9\10)


  10. on 15 Aug 2006 at 2:11 am Sébas

    Ok Mister Poirrier This is what people call entertainment! Get it? Entertainment! Its a movie for crying out loud! A M O V I E! If you take any of these situations seriously, I wonder how you feel when you watch Discovery channel! Its supposed to be funny, and every one is entitled to his/her own opinion, but racist? I dont think its racist. You should look up racism in the dictionnary! But you probably meant discrimination. But thats another story! Have a good one! (8.5/10)


  11. on 15 Aug 2006 at 9:41 pm Josée

    I just saw the movie last night and I thought it was hilarious. I loved it. I thought all the actors were great.

    I agree with Sebas, Mr Poirier, you have to see the humour in the movie. Its like a caricature, a mockery of the animosity between people from Quebec and Ontario and just like a caricature, its exagerated!

    As for your comment about the french canadian actor playing an english guy, if you had listened to what Patrick Huard said to him on the phone (and to the caracrter himself when he talked) you would know that the caracter had an accent in both english and french!! Which means he was neither or, thats why he had an accent.

    All I can say to the people reading this and who havent sen the movie yet, go see it!! And please, to not pay attemtion to Mr Poiriers commentaries, they are in no way reflecting what the movie is about all about. Its not about racism at all. please go see it, Im sure you won,t regret it. I give it 9/10!!

    This movie can be some cure for the country. If we can call Canada a country: francos wants to be alone apart in their small world, while anglos have their body here and their souls lost at south of the border, where theyre nothing. Whos left at the end? Two solitudes! Thats were this movie shoots and scores. Common folks: like we say in french Canada, we cant have both the butter and the money for the butter! Choices must be made: we live here or not. Go see that movie where were on the big screen! Its not perfect, but its a great feeling! Beware canamericans: there isnt much for you in it. Its for canadians only. >:-)


  13. on 17 Aug 2006 at 9:32 pm JH

    Just for the person that calls this movie racist, I wasnt aware that Ontarian or Quebecois was a race.


  14. on 19 Aug 2006 at 10:36 pm danger devo

    this movie looks great, the only annoying thing is that its going to have the french subtitled when i go see it in theaters i hate that i think i might just wait for the DVD and turn all the subtitles off


  15. on 21 Aug 2006 at 12:46 am jonny

    t qui toi pour dire que le film est mauvais vu que ta juste regarder le trailer??? pauvre idiot


  16. on 21 Aug 2006 at 5:08 am fcgilbert

    This is the best movie I have seen in some time. For anyone who has not seen it, it is fantastic. I really dont understand where Mr. Poirier is coming from at all! This movie really is bilingual, theres 50% english (with jokes about Quebec) and 50% french (with jokes about Ontario! I do agree with danger devo regarding the subtitles but once you stop yourself from reading them (when it dawns on you 10 minutes into the movie that you understand everything!!) they dont really bother you anymore.

    10/10


  17. on 22 Aug 2006 at 2:17 am ferbies

    Le meilleur filme de lannee dapres moi. Cest surtout drole si vous etes francophone/bilingue pour comprendre certain termes qui sonnent mieux en francais quen anglais. coup dpatin!! Ha! Funnier than the cookie cutter Lethal Weapon type movies.


  18. on 22 Aug 2006 at 3:51 pm Krista

    This was the best movie. This is totally Canadian and yes, even us English speakers still get it and enjoyed it. Im from BC and thought it was hilarious, making fun of those two provinces. Rick Mercer was one of the highlights.


  19. on 23 Aug 2006 at 7:09 pm Pat

    Funny to see english canadians saying that this is the best canadian movie ever made while there is greats ones already in french such as “horloge biologique” or “Québec-Montréal”, “les invasions barbares”…etc…


  20. on 25 Aug 2006 at 3:50 am Matt Burton

    Fuuuuuuuuuuck yeah man, sta vue icitte va rocker man, fuck les osti de tete carrés danglais de tabarnak!!!! Yeeeaaaah. This movie is gunna rock coliss


  21. on 25 Aug 2006 at 3:58 am rn

    I saw this film yesterday and cant wait for Bon Cop Bad Cop 2. Sub titles are annoying but you soon forget them. Laughed throughout the film - that beavers tail sticking out of the trunk of the car- Not nearly enough promotion of this fun film!


  22. on 02 Sep 2006 at 10:51 am Ross

    This movie has great humour, tension and the sex/fight scene is brilliant.
    Lets have another please.


  23. on 07 Sep 2006 at 11:27 pm vwh

    I am an anglophone Ontarian and I think Quebecers are great. I hope to speak fluent french one of these days myself. Loved the film! It was fun, it had humour, it had action, both main male characters are sexy, I cant wait for a sequel. If these two were in a spin-off TV series, id watch. The only thing I didnt like was the bad guy - not quite english and not quite french - had a weird frenglish accent when speaking both languages. Perhaps the filmakers did this on purpose?


  24. on 08 Sep 2006 at 2:41 pm Adrian

    I am an American, and have not been able to see this movie. I want to so bad. My family on my moms side are Canadian. My grandfather was from Montreal, but my mom is from Kingston. Does anyone know if this movie will be released in the states? If not I will have to wait for the DVD, just like I had to with Men with Brooms and the Les Boys movies.


  25. on 08 Sep 2006 at 10:15 pm sandra

    I talked my husband into seeing this movie - the whole Canadian made thing - but he loved it as much as I did. It it the funniest movie I have seen in a long time. It makes equal fun of the stereotypical French and English attitudes, I have just as may Quebec relatives as I do relatives in other parts of the country and I did not find it at all offensive. We need to be able to laugh at ourselves more after all isnt that what Canadian are known for.


  26. on 13 Sep 2006 at 12:22 pm TurboMikey

    saw the movie last weekend in Montreal I laughted till I cried I know people from both places (Montreal & Ontario) and yes the stereotype is this movie hits it on the money and makes us laugh about ourselves..best movie for the $$ out there in a long timemaybe Hollywood should view it and stop making us lose money on super productions that suckjust my 2cents


  27. on 17 Sep 2006 at 3:33 am Leonard Harman

    I saw this movie while in Montreal taking an intensive French course and really loved it. On the one had its a pretty standard cop movie chases, fights, explosions, mismatched partners and so forth but its the fun it has with the cultural differences that make it great. Being a hardcore French student, I saw it in a Francophone cinema, meaning no English subtitles. Did not really understand much of the French in the movie, but enjoyed it thouroughly anyway. Am planning to order the DVD when it comes out as a fun way of working on my comprehension of Quebec French.


  28. on 18 Sep 2006 at 10:04 am Ulmo

    I am a quebecer and I did not like that movie. Huard had a big say in its production, and Huards mentality eloquently ezpressed itself : the guy is a jerk! I am sad that some people here will juge all quebecers just with this one movie though! I guess these are the most parasites of us all, blatant racists!

    So to the stupid one who wrote >> : You are a wayyyyyyy out of order buddy! What is this crap of opposing all anglo-north americans to french canadians like you do? Whats the matter with you, looking for a war? Jesus


  29. on 27 Sep 2006 at 9:08 pm Paul

    Im going to stay out of the controvery, all I know is I saw the film and I enjoyed it.

    The two hours went by quickly and I thought I wouldnt mind seeing these guys together again in another movie.

    I cant always say that about the movies I see.


  30. on 30 Sep 2006 at 11:40 am mayzearl

    Well I went to go see it in august, it was harlious. I couldnt stop laughing, I had to go to the washroom before i pissed my pants. I personally do not thing this movie is racist in neither way. I have family in quebec and ontario, so i am perfectly bilingual. If you think this movie is racist u have a screw undo in your brain cause both side makes fun of eachother and u can see eacother laughing about it
    all in all im going to see this movie again and getting it on DVD its a excellent movie
    10/10


  31. on 13 Oct 2006 at 7:15 am Stephen

    Saw it! Loved It! Wheres the sequel??


  32. on 25 Oct 2006 at 1:36 am Patricia

    Hahahaahhahaha, freakin awesome ! this movie is hilarious ! I cant wait to see Bon cop bad cop 2 (Huards decision) Im a quebecer ( and proud of it =D) and i really thinks that this movie was really funny, i had a burst (laughing of squareheads lol) !


  33. on 14 Nov 2006 at 5:34 am Nice movie

    For a movie that tried to open its horizons for incorporating some English, there’s still too much of that annoying French Canadian mentality.

    So basically you say you dont like french canadians because of their mentality?

    Through the whole movie there’s almost nothing else besides David Bouchard (Patrick Huard) bitching and showing off like the rest of Canada and the United States are a bunch of primitives besides Quebecers who keep on making fun of the dead (no respect at all).

    I dont know if you watched the movie but pretty much everybody in this movie was pretty much doing stupid things, to be sure nobody would take it seriously like you did. And am i wrong or you seem to have some problem with quebecers? You seem to be trying to find a way to prove to yourself that french canadian are really bad and snob people.

    I cant stand people like that, they just cant see something just for what it is and put aside their stereotypes and prejudice. Even though i agree acting wasnt the best there is, you could have said it without taking the whole cast and production down because of your strange conception of quebecers.

    But anyways this movie was great, filled with jokes but i think its a little short and they could have included more characters developement especially the bad guys.


  34. on 14 Nov 2006 at 5:36 am Nice movie

    By the way sorry for that off topic thing i posted i just felt really insulted when reading that guys post.


  35. on 17 Dec 2006 at 3:48 pm Scotty 2 hottie

    Great Movie!!!! As a french Canadian, Its been awhile since i seen a movie like this. Lets hope for Bon Cop Bad cop 2 staring Bob and Doug Mackenzielol Great Job

    Great Canadian Humor!


  36. on 29 Dec 2006 at 11:11 pm martin

    Brilliant! Bring on #2 asap

    Well done everyone,

    At the movies and the TV shows I truly think that we have finally got to the point where our product is equal to any and better than 90% of the crap on american tv and movies.


  37. on 07 Jan 2007 at 8:09 am Frank

    Very very good movie ! i recommend it to all !!
    See it !!
    A quand Bon Cop Bad Cop II !?!


  38. on 11 Jan 2007 at 3:41 am Kevin Burton Smith

    Everything Ive heard and seen of the film makes me want to see it even more. Im laughing just thinking about it. Even after all the predictable bitching about it from the morons on either side of the divide (most of whom cant seem to spell in either official language) and the comme ci, comme ça reviews that all seem to have their own little agendas

    Probably why I miss Montreal so much. Everyone including the Anglos are so fiercely passionate about things. But we argue we dont shoot each other (mostly).

    As an extremely homesick ex-pat Montrealer living in Bushland, I dont think Canadians or Quebecois realize how god damn lucky they are or how much they need (and probably deserve) each other.

    Now if I could just get a copy of the DVD of BON COP, BAD COP, some smoked meat from Schwarzs and a 2-4 of Boreale Rousse or St. Ambroise, Id be a happy guy, indeed.

    California dreaming? Not on this winters day.


  39. on 15 Jan 2007 at 6:00 am Kerrin

    je suis americaine et jadore cet film!!

    i havent laughed so hard at a film in a long time. it is SOOO good!!!

    i saw the preview for it when i was in Montreal last March and couldnt wait to see it. i finally was able to get it on DVD since it never came to the theatres near me. so happy i own it!


  40. on 17 Feb 2007 at 5:01 pm Kiss my....

    This movie Sucks big time its nothing but a bad remake of lethal weapon but without the budget. Black and white are traded for french and english. Scenario is lame and predictable. Directing is just about as technical as could be expected from Erik Canuel without any artistic expression. But luckely for them its backed by an great marketing campain ! Of course it was bound to win a Jutra simply because the organization had to recognize the tremendrous sucess given by the marketing of the movie. So if you have $ and time to waste with a no brainer remake its for you but with all the other movies out there I ask why ?


  41. on 19 Feb 2007 at 1:03 am Twigs

    I think its hilarious within its genre, because it really is a bit formulaic both the men get each others woman, the cops become friends through adversity, all the crimes build up to the one at the end, that sort of thing. Within that, I thought it was very well done. The Francophones and Anglos were made fun of equally, and the banter in French and English was clever and fast-paced. I think it would be hard to follow if youre not bilingual, even with subtitles, because of some of the expressions and references used, but I think overall it is a laugh.


  42. on 20 Feb 2007 at 11:32 pm Gravitas

    While Ill admit that the English cop did take the back seat for a goodly portion of the movie (the repartie betweem the two does nothing but make him look snide, and despite his best efforts he comes off like the kid in high school you beat the shit ot of because he just couldnt get the joke), it balances out- he does a great job of ending the movie. All Good things come to those who wait. Not bad.

    I still maintain that bilinguals will appreciate this movie the most. I saw it in both languages. Laughed just as hard.

    PS: Quit being tools, guys. Its a funny movie, not a vendetta against any one culture.


  43. on 20 Mar 2007 at 3:43 pm Roshan

    Loved it, loved it and I downloaded it. This surely is one of the best cop movies around. Colm Feore is a great actor. I thought that the acting was great and there were some really funny moments in the movie. Great job.


  44. on 29 Mar 2007 at 5:22 pm LOVED IT!

    i watched this movie for the first time with a friend of mine from quebec (im from ontario) and i personally thought it was hilarious! maybe because my friend and i were laughing at eachother for how close to home some of the jabs were, but all in all, an amazing film and would suggest anyone to watch if they get the chance!
    cheers


  45. on 05 May 2007 at 5:18 pm Strat

    Great, awesome movie! The concept was a sucess. being a bilingual Québécois, I had a lot of fun watching this movie. When you understand both languages, this movie is a must-see! Subtitles are there to support people who have trouble understanding in either language. great job on that. And bravo to the people who wrote that this movie is discriminating for both ontarians and québécois! Colm Feore is indeed a great actor and Patrick huard is, originally, a stand-up comic. His acting skills are sometimes crude and may even annoy some people, especially those who dont appreciate him in the first place, but he was great in this movie!
    Calisse de tabarnac! Cest tu possible de se respecter mutuellement pis darrêter lostie dethnocentrisme a marde?
    9/10 for this movie. Vivele Québeclibre haha best part of the movie!


  46. on 05 Sep 2007 at 10:12 pm Chris

    The best movie to come from Quebec. Remember duo-cop films like Lethal Weapon,Rush Hour, and in some way Beverly hills cop 1,2,3. The duo of a French guy and a English guy was amazingly done. I wish theyd continue this duo for a few movies more. I have watched the movie countless times cause its so great from the first minute to the last. I feel like a jerk not paying attention to other roles Patrick Huard has played cause he is a really good actor. Enjoyed this a whole lot.


  47. on 18 Jun 2008 at 2:55 am Hate French

    Why do we need to keep giving the MINORITY more rights than the MAJORITY (English) ??
    French is a DEAD language.


  48. on 17 Nov 2008 at 3:16 am Dennis

    I just heard a few days ago they theyre suppose to shoot a sequel next year, something about a pop star. like Bon cap Bad cop2: saving celine, or something
