Bon Cop, Bad Cop: Monday, May 15 2017

What to say about Bon Cop, Bad Cop 2 (2017)! Written by Patrick Huard, and directed by Alain Desrochers, it is entertaining. Colm Feore as the Bad Cop and Patrick Huard as the Bon Cop are both amusing in their parts. This is a sequel to Bon Cop, Bad Cop (2006), with the same two starring in their original roles. They look a bit older, I would presume, not having seen the first film.

The Bad Cop is from Toronto and the Bon Cop is from Montreal. Some laughs were raised around the tensions between the two cities and provinces. If you like satire, you will enjoy the picture painted of the American cops, south of the Canadian border. It's not pretty!

I've had to remind myself of the storyline by looking up the internet. It's something to do with a car smuggling ring that turns out to be much more than it seems.

As this is a Canadian film, I would like to be kinder about the poor direction, and poor script. On the other hand, most people wouldn't even notice, and the film did make me laugh out loud a few times. This is more than can be said of any of the many films I have seen recently. It also is light entertainment, and leaves one feeling amused. Again, this is more than most films of recent vintage. If you are feeling like a romp about Canadian policemen, this is your film.
