Review: Bon Cop, Bad Cop

So I went to see Bon Cop, Bad Cop on Friday, a Canadian buddy-cop movie starring Colm Feore and Patrick Huard.

It ain't Lethal Weapon or Rush Hour, but it's still entertaining in the same way Strange Brew was; it's distinctively Canadian. There's no way the average American moviegoer enjoys this flick, though. Juuuust a bit inside.

Anyhow, the film has a good number of laughs - especially if you know your Quebec-Canada issues, history and sports.

The MAJOR drawback to this film - which seems to be generally acknowledged - is the total weak-ass villain. What the heck were they thinking? Maybe Huard took the day off when they wrote those pages...

After the record-setting box office (for a Canadian flick) I hear a sequel is in the works...

So get out there and support Canadian cinema!
