De père en flic 2 (Fathers and Guns 2)

Director: Émile Gaudreault Year: 2017 Run Time: 107min

A few years after they infiltrated a therapy program for fathers and sons (as depicted in the hit film De pere en flic) in order to find a kidnapped colleague, Commander Jacques Laroche (Côté) and his son Marc (Houde) still have a pretty rocky relationship.

When the two cops find out that a Mafia lieutenant they’ve been tracking has signed up for a “bootcamp for couples” with his wife, Marc and his aspiring-Commander girlfriend Alice quickly sign up. Of course, getting close to his intended target while trying to save his relationship with Alice is going to be a tougher assignment than Marc realized. Especially when his father invites himself along, pretending to be the psychologist’s assistant.
 
This funny and feel-good take on the buddy cop genre was a box office hit in Quebec, winning the Golden Reel Award as the highest grossing Canadian film of 2017.
