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

Did You Know?


In this movie, Marc 'Louis-José Houde'qv 's friend is named Jeff. This could be a reference to Bon Cop Bad Cop (2006), in which Louis-José Houde had a small role as Jeff the pathologist. Coincidently, both films are police/comedy flicks. See more »

User Reviews

Funny and entertaining...
22 July 2009 | by cecodereSee all my reviews

This movie has a good dose of humor and is quite funny to watch. It is based on a story of both a father and a son who are both cops and have a difficult time understanding each other as they are totally different, but must still work with each other. It is entertaining and light, and is quite funny because of its inside jokes and clichés of father-son relationships. And even though some of the jokes might not be understood for those who do not live in the province of Quebec, most jokes will be understood by everyone. I would give it 7.5 out of 10 if it was possible, as it is entertaining even though it will never become a great classic movie!
