Raunchy and vulgar Copyrighted, Warner Bros. Pictures

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Dax Shepard (‘Hit and Run,’ TV’s ‘Parenthood’) and Michael Peña (‘The Martian’) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ action comedy CHiPs. Shepard also directs from a script he penned based on the characters from the popular ‘70s television series created by Rick Rosner.

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 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 hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker’s bike skills combined with Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy along the way.

The two middle-aged cops soon find themselves in a situation like none other, when a sadistic ex-cop (played by Vincent D’Onofrio) and his motor vehicle theft hitmen wreak havoc throughout their city.”

Movie Critics

…Raunchy comedy is a stupid idea poorly executed…
—Stephanie Merry The Washington Post

…tremendously lame… raunchy sex…
—Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

…just a rancid gag machine… it’s a sample of the brain-dead entertainment… Painfully unfunny sex jokes… there's nothing funny about the parade of bare breasts and over-sexed, under-developed female characters… [½]
—Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com

…Overall, the film is an uncomfortable eye-roll. …feeble story and tasteless jokes…
—Sandy Cohen, Associated Press

…buddy-movie clichés in a blender… “Starsky & Hutch” and “The Dukes of Hazzard” were flat-out masterpieces compared to “CHIPS,” an ultra-violent and ultra flavorless buddy movie…
—Owen Gleiberman, Variety

…timid, off-colour cops-on-bikes remake… never quite thrums into life, and contains a few horribly misjudged moments… [2/5]
—Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian

…Borderline incoherent and unrepentantly lewd…
—Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

…The adaptation of the TV series wants to be “woke” but also hilariously offensive. It’s neither. …CHIPS is a bad movie, but bad in a way where you can see every choice made along the way to making it bad. …
—Todd VanDerWerff, Vox
