An failed attempt to revive the old glories of a franchise few remember. [Full review in Spanish]

Whoever put the elephant stamp on this wretched remake of the fondly regarded family series should be forced to watch it.

CHIPS is a vulgar and unthrilling comedy based on a forty-year-old franchise that no one looks particularly fondly on, its only claim to memorability being its repeated reference to analingus.

A disclaimer reads "The California Highway Patrol does not endorse this film". It's hard to imagine anyone does.

This sloppy, sluggish update isn't really interested in casually channelling the simple retro goofiness of the concept. Instead, it vaguely tries (and conspicuously fails) to be a turbocharged, two-wheeled version of last year's hit The Nice Guys.

Whatever slither of potential appears on screen is just as quickly brushed away by a comedic tone that while familiar, is incredibly lowbrow even in this post Hangover age.
April 3, 2017
CHIPS is an ugly film: cheap, mean-spirited, joyless and pointless.

If only one of his efforts would have shown any signs of the talent Shepard has revealed in past work, CHIPs would have risen from abysmal to merely awful.

Fans of the TV show will likely find this portion of CHiPs about as far from the source as the Starsky & Hutch movie.

Shepard seems set on giving it the Brady Bunch or 21 Jump Street spoof treatment, but he doesn't have the wit to pull it off.
March 30, 2017
The investigation is dull, the jokes dispiritingly flat-footed, with Ponch's sex addiction and squirminess over male intimacy supplying most of the setups for CHIPS's puerile humor.
March 30, 2017
[Dax Shepard] needs to take on better characters than the ones he's written for himself.
March 30, 2017
The harsh reality is that it's not very funny at all.
March 29, 2017
While Michael Pena and Dax Shepard garner a few laughs with their chemistry, it isn't enough to overcome a messy first half and blatant sexism.
March 29, 2017
A lazy, vulgar and painfully idiotic buddy-cop comedy that is as generic and predictable as they come.
March 29, 2017
Remember the 21 Jump Street movie? That was a blast. The sequel was pretty great too. Chips wants to be a self-aware action comedy too, but Chips is not that. It's not much of anything at all, to be honest.

How many ways can I say 'un-funny' and 'stupid'?
March 28, 2017
A movie that hates itself and its audience.
March 27, 2017
CHiPS is not quite as mean-spirited as War on Everyone but it sure will test your patience in other ways.
March 27, 2017
Toilet humor, cars exploding for no reason, random naked boobies, and gay panic... although, weirdly, also lots of awkward, unerotic nearly naked Dax Shepard.
