BON COP BAD COP

BON COP BAD COP is the first Canadian feature film presented in both official languages - English and French. Bilingualism itself is at the centre of the film's comedy, which revolves around the concept of two cultures and languages clashing in a uniquely Canadian way. The film pokes fun at various Ontarian/English and Québecois/French stereotypes, playfully subverting the familiar dichotomies embodied in the film's two main protagonists: Martin Ward, an English-speaking policeman from Toronto, and David Bouchard, a French-speaking cop from Montreal.
