Storyline

They are father and son. They are both cops. And they are about to work together as a team. Trouble is... neither can stand the sight of the other. Jacques and Marc have been paired up in order to save the life of a brother officer who has been kidnapped by a biker gang. The success of their mission hinges on a lawyer in crisis. Charles Bérubé may be the bikers' legal representative, but his conscience is giving him such a bad time that he looks ready to betray his clients to the forces of law and order. Jacques and Marc go undercover to get up close and personal with their target. Will they gain Bérubé's trust? Will they coax him into baring his troubled conscience and all the information it contains? The film combines the strengths of a great, classic comedy cop thriller with a hilarious study of a dysfunctional, father-son relationship. Written by Sydney Levine

A rare gem in the world of French-Canadian cinematography
26 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As a bilingual speaker living in a French Community, I get to see both American and French-Canadian movies. I'm more of a comedy and action addict, and most movies my province releases are dramas, who most of the time, are pointless or are comedies that sometimes don't make us laugh at all. The main problem with that is that our filmmakers have a tendency to over-stretch a recipe that made us laugh once, but after a few pointless sequels, don't make us laugh anymore. But since I'm more into big visual effects, I don't go watch most of my province's movies, and if I do, it happens around once a year, which is not a lot considering the fact I go to the movies every two weeks.

To tell you the truth, when I first saw the trailer for this movie at the theaters(when I was about to watch The International), I wasn't at all sure whether I was going to see it or not. Then I saw the trailers over and over again and when it came out, I heard positive reviews from my grand-parents (My grandpa has a lot of trouble watching a whole movie) and my parents and before I knew it, I dragged my friend along to the movies. And I'll tell you I enjoyed Louis-José Houde and Michel Coté in this movie. Their chemistry seemed to work perfectly and for a French-Canadian movie, it was awesome. Some scenes make you smile while others make you laugh out loud. The story was very well elaborated and the script itself very well written. I have no flaws to tell you about this movie except perhaps the fact that it probably won't be released in the United States (though there is an English version available, but I don't know if it is dubbed or subtitled). All in all, a person living in Québec should absolutely see this movie and for the people who aren't living in Québec, look for a film called ''Father and Guns'' (the English version). Two thumbs way up, and this is a film that all French-Canadian directors should take example on.
