Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
After the trailer debuted, Erik Estrada, star of CHiPs (1977), the TV series on which this movie is based, retweeted a post on Twitter that blasted it as "pure trash". The Tweet was critical of the use of gunplay in the trailer, and also called the film "demeaning" to fans of the original show.
Interestingly, the characters in the trailer and presumably the movie proper are carrying guns and will fire them. Contrast to the show where they carried guns but never fired them once during the run of the show.
Wilmer Valderrama and Chris Evans were going to portray Ponch and Jon.
Dax Shepard and Kristin Bell are married with kids in real life.
Filmed in Palmdale, CA.
Kristin Bell and Ryan Hanson worked together on the tv show Veronica Mars and the movie of the same name, based on the tv show, years later.
