Bon Cop, Bad Cop is a 2006 Canadian comedy-thriller buddy cop film about an anglo Ontarian and a Québécois police officer who reluctantly join forces. The dialogue is a mixture of English and French. The title is a translation word play on the phrase "Good cop/Bad cop".

It's a buddy cop movie with some distinctly Canadian humour that's all about hockey. So, pretty much the most awesome movie ever made.

There's nothing artistic or high-brow about its supposed 'style', and the hockey parodies are really obvious and fairly unfunny, but it's hard to top this kind of sheer outrageous fun nowadays. The banter between the leads is pretty great, and the linguistic comedy is occasionally hilarious. Still, it's rather embarrassing that this is both the highest grossing Canadian movie ever and the winner of the Genie for Best Picture in its year.

Actually, thinking about it, it's still better than Titanic. So maybe not that embarrassing.

So it's Strange Brew with more guns and a functional cinematographer?

Haven't actually seen Strange Brew, but this is really nothing like anything the McKenzie brothers have done. Think a Canadian Hot Fuzz, but with more hockey and less intelligence. So I'm sure you'd hate it. ;)
