Back Stab


Back Stab (1990) is a Canadian whodunit staring James Brolin as a meek architect who has been a workaholic since the death of his wife. After a meeting where the company is introduced to the team that has just leveraged a hostile takeover, he is persuaded by his female assistant to go to a bar for a birthday celebration. There, he picks up by a very attractive young woman, and screws her in her car. The next night, she takes him home, they do it on the floor, and he falls asleep. When he wakes up, she is gone. He looks around, and finds the new owner of his company dead of multiple stab wounds.

Certain that he has been set up, he gets an attorney and turns himself in. He is indicted for murder one, and is amazed to discover that the woman who was married to the stiff and has admitted to having an affair with Brolin is not the same woman he really had sex with. He also realizes that his attorney doesn't believe him, and that he will have to take matters into his own hands.

This is not a bad mystery at all, although it is not hard to figure out long before the last scene.

Sarain Boylan in Bon Cop Bad Cop.

This film now holds the Canadian box office record for the highest gross from a Canadian film, breaking the old record which was held for more than two decades by Porky's. Although its performance was unimpressive in most of Canada, Bon Cop went absolutely lines-around-the-block nuts in Quebec. It grossed more than $11 million in Quebec and only one million in the rest of Canada added together! The population of Quebec in 2006 was 7.5 million people, so it grossed $1.50 for every man, woman and child in the province - the proportional equivalent to a $450 million ultra blockbuster in the USA.

Porky's is still the highest-grossing Canadian film of all time if the definition is total gross worldwide. In fact, Porky's is still the highest grossing Canadian film in Canada when the results are expressed in inflation-adjusted dollars, ticket sales, or beaver pelts. (The number of tickets sold was twice as high for Porky's as for Bon Cop.)
