Trivia

In the English audio commentary, the director/producer make light of the different accents in the movie. They point out that the Tattoo Killer has an "accent" speaking both English and French; they wrote him as a Franco-Manitoban. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Alternate Versions

Because the dialogue is half English, half French, both versions shared the same soundtrack. The only difference is in the subtitles: in the French version, English dialogue was subtitled, and in the English version, it was the French dialogue. See more »

A lovely movie
7 August 2006 | by selesseSee all my reviews

"Bon Cop, Bad Cop" was fun to watch. It carried a typical story, but it was played out so well that it didn't matter. In my opinion, it succeeded quite well in bringing in the typical "cliché" traits that are given to Ontarians and Quebeckers. The fact that the film was bilingual was something new and something exciting, and the subtitles didn't affect the movie at all, it even made it better. The cast was very convincing and very real.

Patrick Huard succeeded in portraying his role as a light-hearted Quebecker and helped take the stress off of some events with his good sense of humor. Louis-José Houde played a small role but couldn't keep the audience from laughing. This movie is definitely a must-see, especially if you're a fan of Patrick Huard or Louis-José Houde!
