CHIPS Reviews

It is really no plot at all, merely a vehicle to allow Shepard and Pena to riff about kinky bedroom habits, homophobia and so on. Those flippant exchanges fluctuate from funny to flat.

Taken purely on its own, Chips is a wretched attempt at an action comedy. I can only imagine how it looks to viewers with emotional investment in the source material

The harsh reality is that it's not very funny at all.

While I clearly cannot recommend this film, I have to admit there were a couple of amusing moments.

I'm actually kind of shocked there aren't more homophobic gags here.

Starsky & Hutch and 21 Jump Street, for instance, were a hoot. Hollywood should have quit while it was ahead, though, because CHiPs is the antithesis of a hoot.

A buddy film about overcompensating characters that seems to have also been made by overcompensating comedians.

It's not uniquely bad, nor so bad it's good. It's factually, quantifiably bad. Overcooked, underdressed, sloppy, indigestible: just your classic crap hamburger of a movie.

It already feels like a rerun.

Shepard and Pena do at least throw themselves into proceedings with elan, but they can't prevent CHiPs from seeming a distinctly second-gear affair.
March 23, 2017
Given the alternative between the big-screen CHIPS and an antiquated, low-stakes episode of the original TV series, we'd pick the latter in a heartbeat.

Both Shepard and Pena are likable actors, and they do have chemistry together... But good-natured chemistry isn't enough to lift CHiPs anywhere near the ranks of the Lethal Weapons and Bad Boys that Shepard claimed to be aiming for.

Can a movie be cheekily self-aware and still thoroughly terrible? Without a doubt. And yet damned if "CHIPS" doesn't somehow make the most of its own wink-wink awfulness.
March 23, 2017
A fascination with posteriors - both human and feline - isn't the worst thing about "CHIPS," but it's up there.
March 23, 2017
Rambunctious and insouciant, "CHIPS" has about as much nutritional cinematic value as the potato variety.
March 23, 2017
Reimagined by writer, director, producer and star Dax Shepard, the big-screen CHIPS is a tawdry, testosterone-fueled tale built around penis jokes and endless evaluation of women's appearances.
March 23, 2017
One more R-rated pileup of buddy-and-body humor, slathered with chases and collisions for that empty-calorie sumpn' extra. If you're looking for a whip-smart, hilariously meta-rethink like the 21 Jump Street movies, you've made a seriously wrong turn.
March 23, 2017
"CHIPS" is a miserable movie, an exercise in stupidity that takes whatever nostalgia one had for the late-1970s television series - this assumes anyone actually had nostalgia for it - and beats it to death on a bed of idiocy.
March 23, 2017
Fans of Rick Rosner's 1977-1983 TV show won't find much to pique nostalgia and anyone hoping to revisit the golden days of these earnest troopers may need to lie down for a bit.
March 23, 2017
As light entertainment goes, "CHiPs" is fairly accomplished, and Pena and Shepard make a good team.
