Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank Ponch Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten-up former pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside-job inside the CHP. The inexperienced rookie and the hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kick-starting a real partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker's unique bike skills and Ponch's street savvy it might just work...if they don't drive each other crazy first.

    I had the chance to watch this on an airplane recently. Went in expecting a funny Starsky and Hutch mixed with Super Troopers style movie. The writing was atrocious, and the plot made no sense. The jokes were terrible -- neither my girlfriend nor I laughed once the entire movie. The dialog is also riddled with awful and obvious post-production dubbing of individual words. I've honestly never seen such a terrible movie come out of a major studio.

    The only true undeniably funny thing about Chips, an unwanted and unnecessary remake of a TV series no one cares about, is the just how criminally unfunny Dax Shepard's film is.

    It's not easy for a "comedy" to bring so little to the table of laughs but this newest example of a brash, crude, rude and daft American comedy is so bereft of laughs that you begin to take matters into your own hands and laugh at just how badly jokes are told or just how bad a group of actors that should know better are.

    With a plot line that is not worth the effort to write about and a bunch of characters that are led by a Shepard's sad sack one time pro-motocross rider Jon, who has zero charisma and Michael Pena's creepy undercover Ponch, who prefers looking at girls in yoga pants over solving crimes, Chips never had a chance of succeeding, which makes it one of those films you can't even fathom was ever greenlit, let alone funded to become a Hollywood event.

    Chips isn't exactly a property you hear a lot of people talking about but clearly Sheppard thought the world was hanging out for a reincarnation of the TV series but in trying to take a page out of the 21 Jump Street book of "hip" remakes, Chips feels very much like similar reboot failure Baywatch, in that it thought a bunch of dumb characters and gross out dialogue and scenarios was enough to get it over the line.

    It's actually embarrassing that filmmakers would think audiences would lap up tired and sad comedic tropes that are on display in Chips and it displays a lack of awareness for the industry to think that they can churn out dross like this and have people lap it up, as perhaps surprisingly to them, we should and by the looks of this films reception do expect a lot more from our escapist entertainment.

    It feels like Hollywood hasn't yet figured out that just because someone is talking filthy or a scenario is gross out, it doesn't make it automatically funny and the quicker comedies in the same ilk as Chips realise this, the better it will be for all parties.

    Final Say –

    A sad state of affairs for all involved, Chips is not in the slightest bit funny, memorable or even slightly likable. Directed amateurishly and acted out by its performers in a manner that suggests they all suspected they were on board a sinking ship, Chips is a deplorable comedy and a reimagining of an old property that should've stayed out of the public eye.

    Absolutely horrible. Hopefully, there won't be a sequel. Ponch and John would never have acted like this. If this was in flight entertainment, I would have walked out.Eric Estrada must have been hard up to have even a short cameo appearance like he did. The best part of this whole movie was the end.

    As a child I did watch the series CHiPs weekly and hearing that a remake was in the make I was looking forward too it. It's always funny to go back on memory lane. Could be a flick full of action...could be.

    Once it came out CHiPs was announced as a comedy but I tried to watch it...until the end because this is really a bad flick. There's a bit of action but the jokes, really are not funny and childish. The further the movie evolved the more I wanted to quit this flick. But i watched until the end to see of there was a cameo of the old ChiPs members and yes, Erik Estrada comes in at the end, uncredited, but you will recognize him without a prob.

    This flick came into the theaters and vanished as it came. One of the biggest flops of 2017 and if you are going to watch it you will see why.
