Did You Know?

Trivia:
There are many references to real National Hockey League events used in the film, such as the Quebec Nordiques' relocation to Colorado, the Eric Lindros situation and the Pocklington deal. Although fictional names are used, these are obvious in-jokes for hockey fans.See more »
Goofs:
Plot holes: The "Welcome to..." sign at a border is never right on the borderline. Each state/province/country has its own sign, a few meters/yards inside its own territory. A dead human body, half in each jurisdiction, would be on the ground, not draped over a sign.See more »
Quotes:

Martin Ward:No, not really. I had a small gadget installed in my brain and I see subtitles under people when they speak.

Surprisingly good, 5 August 2006
Author: vgoudreault from Canada

Despite being based on a somewhat overdone format -- that of two totally opposed policemen forced to team up to resolve a crime -- "Bon Cop, Bad Cop" still manages to come up with a quite entertaining story line, and all that was done with a total budget that would not even pay one half of some of Hollywood superstars. The movie is not without fault; the Bad Cop character (Patrick Huard) is essentially overdone. Chain smoking, foul mouthed cursing, authority defying, he recklessly drives a heap which regularly loses parts around, and is even beating up a vending machine, in short, this is unlikely that someone so headstrong would ever be admitted in a police force, let alone remain in active duty. That said, the movie does have its moments. The scenes featuring the hyper active medical examiner (Louis-Jose Houde) are brilliant (and the actor is not really acting, that is how he is in real life!) or when the Quebec policeman is teaching how to curse "en Quebecois" to his Ontario counterpart, helped along the line by the criminal he his beating and stuffing in his car trunk, are worth the prince of admission. Despite all the clichés that are expected of this format, the movie comes up like a most entertaining one, and no doubt this well served recipe will lead to a "Bon Cop, Bad Cop 2".
