Trivia

Rick Mercer's character, Tom Berry, may very well be named after an amateur stunt driver who was a protégé of Ken "The Mad Canadian" Carter, a Montreal native, well known for being Canada's answer to Evel Knievel and attempting to jump the St. Lawrence River from Canada to the USA in a rocket powered car.

Alternate Versions

Because the dialogue is half English, half French, both versions shared the same soundtrack. The only difference is in the subtitles: in the French version, English dialogue was subtitled, and in the English version, it was the French dialogue. See more »

Great movie
4 August 2006 | by chrisludgateSee all my reviews

I saw this with my wife on opening day, and we both loved it! Great action and great humour. We saw the French version, ie: the English dialogue is subtitled. I imagine that in the English version it's the other way around. If you are bilingual you have an advantage as we found a few times we were the only ones laughing. Some of the jokes didn't get translated quite right from English to French, and I'm sure there are a few French jokes that are funnier if you are from or are familiar with Québec. The direction was superbly done, with some great juxtaposition in one of the scene. The language wasn't that bad (unless you are French, there's more French swearing than English) and there were a couple of graphic scenes, so don't take young kids. Also a good spoof of some prominent hockey figures. Rick Mercer and Louis-Jose Houde provide their typical comedy excellently.

Overall a great movie and I strongly recommend it!
