Star(s): Michel Côté, Louis-José Houde, Rémy Girard.
Jacques (Côté) and Marc (Houde) are father-and-son cops who don’t exactly get along, but when a fellow officer is kidnapped by a biker gang, they’re forced to partner up in order to save his life.
The pair infiltrates an outdoor camp for fathers and sons to snag Charles Bérubé (Girard), the biker gang’s lawyer. As Jacques and Marc try to locate their missing colleague, they find the camp’s bonding activities are having an emotional and hilarious impact on their own relationship.
De père en flic is the highest-grossing French-language film in Canadian history.
“A can’t-miss buddy comedy about a pair of dysfunctional father-son cops who are forced to go undercover at a touchy-feely bonding retreat…a genuinely amusing hybrid.”
— Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
