I saw this film while studying in Paris for the year back in college. It's part of a series which apparently was very popular in France. I like the way the French do buddy cop movies. In this one, you really see the cops as humans with real flaws and problems, but their chemistry is undeniable. While the French could learn how to make action films from the US, we here in America can certainly learn from the French not to fear being human . One last note, the title is in pig latin - Ripoux is the inverted word for garbage.
