Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

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!
