Trivia

The phone-in radio show heard (and seen) at the beginning was hosted by Ron Fournier. Fournier hosts a radio show on CKAC 730AM called "Bonsoir les sportifs!" ("Good Evening Sports Fans"). He is well known for his colorful take on the world of sports and hockey in particular, and is also known to be very flamboyant in his comments and responses to callers. See more »

Funny, action-packed and well-written dialogue in English and french
16 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bon Cop, Bad Cop is probably the best movie I've seen in awhile. What struck me to most was that the chemistry between Patick Huard (Bouchard)and Colm Feore (Ward) was very believable, and the dialogue was very human. The characters were never "exposition-y" and spoke like real people. I also liked that both characters are bilingual, not going for the cheap/insulting digs of "stupid English doesn't understand french" or vice versa. Viewers, of course, do not need to understand french to know exactly what's going on or being said. In fact, there is an entire tutorial on swearing in french given by Bouchard fairly early on in the film which some might find educational.

There are some hilarious digs at hockey culture: the entire character of Harry Buttman being the most obvious; but it never descends into forced jokes or "strategic" set-ups a la Will Ferrell.

Though it is a very Quebec film, it deserves a wide audience.
