Storyline

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. Written by Warner Bros.

these CHIPS don't crunch!
28 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to a movie being made for the hit TV show CHIPS for a long time, and fast forward to 2017...the wait is over, it's finally happened. It's here! CHIPS is a major motion picture! Oh, wait, major? How is anything coming from Dax anything major? This movie is a hollow, shallow, damn near UNWATCHABLE film to date. The best scenes of the movie are clearly in the trailer. The rest of the movie? Picture an entire train without any train tracks, and try to picture it trying to move. Doesn't work, eh? Neither does anything in this movie. The casting was bad, there is absolutely no story ( I'm not kidding, there is NOTHING to see here), and the film was incredibly boring. The hour and forty minute running time, it's going to feel like over 2 hours, trust me...this film was that boring. Unnecessary violence, unnecessary nudity, and unnecessary shootings...makes a very unnecessary movie to be made. If you're going to do it, do it right, dammit! I like Dax, but he was out of his league on this one...he's the same age as me, he was born in the 70's, he didn't live through it! If anyone is entitled to make a film after a beloved show, it should be done by someone who will be faithful to the adaption of the series, and who can argue with that? I actually got distracted after an hour of this atrocious waste of time, and was more entertained with the cheerful baby sitting in the seat with her parent next to me...it reminded me of the "Baby Food" episode from the TV show CHIPS, and actually made me sad of how bad we've steered off the Hollywood track. I appreciate and love classic TV, it should be respected, and if crap like this keeps slipping through the ass cracks of Hollywood itself, I'm done going to the show altogether. Thumbs down, Dax...next time, let's see if Kristen Bell is a little better with the writing and directing.
