YMMV / Bon Cop, Bad Cop

  • Genius Bonus: The next target clues are 99 and an apple. The target is Wayne Gretzky, who finished his career playing for the New York Rangers. He’s also referred to as “The Great One,” Gretzky’s nickname, removing all ambiguity.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Even though Louis-José Houde's character, Jeff, only has 2 scenes in the entire movie (one of which is incredibly short), he's still one of the most remembered parts of the movie.
    • It was made fun of in Patrick Huard's television series "Taxi 22" where his character Rogatien tells Louis-José Houde (who plays himself) that he was the only thing he remembered in the film.

    • It's probably to avoid this trope that Houde's replacement in the sequel, Mariana Mazza, is featured in many more scenes, any time we cut back to Ward's temporary office.
  • Retroactive Recognition: DiPietro is played by Noam Jenkins, best known for voicing Aiden Pearce in Watch_Dogs, and Agent Blaine is played by Andreas Apergis, who has voiced such characters as Pritchard in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, as well as Juhani Otso Berg, Cesare Borgia and Putnam in the Assassin's Creed series.
  • Sequelitis: Arguably, the second film was not received as warmly as the first by critics or audiences, and only made back just over half of it's budget (as opposed to the original's more than doubling it).
  • Tearjerker:
    • The reveal that Ward has Lou Gehrig's disease.
    • Also, when he thinks he's gotten his estranged son killed by accident.
  • The Scrappy: MC, for some. Mariana Mazza is a bit of a divisive comedian in Quebec, and some felt her character was exaggerated and overblown (especially her intro scene, in which she simulates sex on a computer bank while mocking Steve Jobs).

How well does it match the trope?
