When the body of the executive of hockey Benoit Brisset is found on the billboard of the border of Quebec and Ontario, the jurisdiction of the crime is shared between the two police forces and detectives David Bouchard from Montreal and Martin Ward from Toronto are assigned to work together. With totally different styles, attitudes and languages, the reckless David and the ethical Martin join force to disclose the identity of the Tattoo Killer, a deranged serial-killer that is killing managers of hockey.

Did You Know?


When Therrien is in the mascot in front of the mirror with the gun, at one point he turns around and yells "Ah-ha!" This is a spoof of a series of Quebec commercials for a local drugstore called Familiprix. In each commercial, someone gets in a situation where he gets hurt or sick, and a pharmacist in a white lab coat appears yelling "Ah-ha! Familiprix!". The pharmacist is played by 'Sylvain Marcel', who plays the role of Luc Therrien. See more »


At the Ontario/Quebec provincial line, as Bouchard is walking away and Ward is speaking to him from behind, Ward's position changes between camera shots, although he's depicted as standing still. See more »


Harry Buttman: [Buttman is bound and lying in a car trunk] Don't you know who I am? We'll sue your asses. You can't put me in the trunk of a car.
Martin Ward: Yes we can. It's Quebec tradition.

Really good !
4 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I've seen it yesterday and it is very good! I'm french, so I've seen it in french, but I'll probably go see it in English too, because although I watched it in french, there's a lot of English parts (subtitled) so I guess the English version will also be subtitled for the french parts. It not hard to understand, it's completely hilarious, but there's also a very good story and I honestly suggest it to anyone (exept young children, there's a lot of swearing (haha) in both languages! ) The movie is not too long, it lasts about two hours but I never felt tired of any part. It talks a lot about hockey, our national sport, but the story is not all about it, which allows the less-informed viewers to understand easily (There are some inside jokes with our hockey reality, but only a few). Seriously, I laughed, I got scared, I jumped, I laughed again, and I simply loved this movie which I recommend to you all.
