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.Written by

When Bouchard is on Tom Berry's show and gives out his phone number for the tattoo killer, his lip movement seems different from what he actually says. According to the DVD commentaries, in the take, Patrick Huard actually gave his personal cell phone number. The fake number was dubbed over it. See more »

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
"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!
