To Protect and Serve (Protéger & servir) is a 2010 French crime comedy directed by Eric Lavaine and starring Kad Merad and Clovis Cornillac as two buddy cops, Lts. of the Paris police Michel Boudriau and Kim Houang. During professional testing, they get the highest scores (only due to Kim's familiarity with the boss' secretary) and are chosen to investigate the series of explosions that happen in Paris. With the help of rookie but aspiring police inspector and batty expert on explosives the duo makes a success.
