CHiPs (2017)

Comedy • R • Directed by: Dax Shepard • 101 minutes

Jon Baker (Dax Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Michael 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.

Funny movie
★★★★★
All I have to say is that this movie was funny as hell — IceSoldier16

Total junk
★★★★
Probably for a younger audience. I would say it was the worst movie I have ever watched. Can I get my $5 rental money back? — dthawk

Made for teenagers, not adults.
★★★★
This movies was horrible! — TyGReZZ

Actually, a very funny movie
★★★★★
So my expectaions were not high. And I watched the movie because there was really nothing else I could stomach. But, with all that said, it was a darn good movie. Nothing to do with the TV series, but still a very funny film with back-to-back scenes full of humor. I think the critics gave Dax and Co an unfair shake. Its a solid piece of adult comedy and defiitley worth watching. — Lounge Lover

My Inner 12 Year Old LOVED It
★★★★
I'm 44. I grew up on shows like CHiPs on television. But I don't hold them up as some beacon of goodness that need never be dishonored. It's a tv show, don't be silly. This movie was far funnier than I expected. It has great action scenes throughout. It features two great comedic actors (three if you count Kristen Bell in a lesser role) doing what they do...make you laugh. If you're not too uptight about it being a homage to the original & you still are in touch with your inner child, this movie is worth the money. — MarcLWalker

Fun
★★★★★
Good action and funny — Sainster29

I liked the TV series so I thought I would try this
★★★★
This movie was one of those slapstick comedies...not even really funny...just stupid funny. It wasn a horrible movie...it definitely was not a great movie. It ruined the original TV show. The TV show always had a good story behind it...it was wholesome...something the family could watch...what were they thinking when they made this movie ? Don't even bother to rernt this at $2.99...it was THAT bad.... — Fly Fishing for Bonefish...

FUNNY

what a big pile of s
★★★★
Wish I would have seen this I would have payed the 2.99 for the rental than wast 30 bucks on the bluray copy TERRABLE TERRABLE movie — Patchy1982

Funny !!!!
★★★★★
I love this movie. I have it downloaded on my phone. Watch it all the time. Gonna get Baywatch now. These are gonna my two new favorite movies !!!!!! — distheman1977

HILARIOUS
★★★★★
The prudes complaining are nothing more than that. If you're a "soft" person then this maybe isn't for you, if you collect action figures from the original chips show, own a pair of bike pants that have never been washed, straight from the show and own it on VHS, DVD and digital.. then yeah, you shouldn't watch this. If you want to laugh and be entertained, then yes watch this movie. — Dirty Armor

What's all the HATE?
★★★★
Man, this is supposed to be a stupid comedy and it fulfills that role perfectly. Don't read into it. Just turn off your brain and enjoy the laughs. I really liked it. — Digital Dave65

Some good laughs
★★★★
Yeah, I used to watch CHiPs as a kid and I loved it. But this isn't our beloved childhood series. Same name, same 2 main characters and that is where the resemblance ends. This movie is it's own creature and I got a lot of kicks from it. The storyline is okay but the comedy is just to my taste. — crysita

Absolute garbage
★★★★
This movie stinks worse than fresh dog crap on a 100 degree day. — RobDagg1972

Fun movie
★★★★★
Great take on a show I grew up watching. Funny banter, awesome stunts, beautiful bikes! — J Soliven

Chips
★★★★
When I bought the movie on wifi and tried to download it, it would not let me download it so I spent 5 dollars to rent a movie and didn't even get to watch it — kadoggie98

Too raunchy
★★★★★
There were a few funny parts and some good ideas. Ultimately, however, it was too raunchy and terribly written. — Rambo8649

Great buddy cop movie!
★★★★★
Critics are way too picky. Do you like buddy cop shows? Do you like them a little raunchy? Dax and Pena are hilarious, this show is funny and that's that. Bring on the sequel. — SCT_iPhone

Good Fun
★★★★
Lighthearted and a bit crass... highly entertaining! — 123sa

Worst Movie Ever
★★★★
Pls don't waste ur time watching — Jacozinho

Wow!!
★★★★
I would give it zero stars but I felt pity for the fool. — Manuelmaster

Not very good
★★★★★
Movie is a train wreck but there are some funny scenes. I like both the lead actors and they did they're best with a junk script. Has pretty much nothing to do with the original Chips series. — Class A213243

Hilarious
★★★★★
I thought it would be ok.... It was hilarious! I hope they make another one! — Sean402

Love it! 👀
★★★★★
I don't know why some people give negative 😏reviews for this movie we watch this. OMG it was so funny. 😂😂😂 — Alaska Philippines

FILTHY DIRTY DISGUSTING
★★★★
The previews only show a scintilla of the clean funny parts of the entire movie. This movie is filthy, dirty and disgusting, not to mention the poor story line. If you plan to watch this movie, be sure no kids are in the room and within ear shot. Also be sure all those who want to watch it agree. Oh yea, it objectifies women. — GaryKlimeck

Funny !!
★★★★
Fifi & Boooo probably should've watch the Preview and looked at the ratings before they brought the children in the room. If you watch Mary Poppins twice a year with the family after church, you probably won't like it. I thought it was funnier than heck!... if you're not laughing, you're not living. — joecwels

🤢🤢Terrible🤢🤢
★★★★
Going to the dentist & having all your teeth pulled without anything for pain is less painful then watching this. It's not the acting that is horrible it the script. Not at all the tribute I was hoping for to the original show Chips. — AnonnonLauri

What a pleasant surprise
★★★★★
loved it..Wasnt expecting much and it turned out to be a really good film. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED — Movie Critical

My brain hurts
★★★★
I could actually feel my I.Q. Drop watching this train wreck....no wonder Europe thinks most Americans are dull and stupid.,..wanna see a funny movie that respects and honors law enforcement,..watch '' Let's be cops'',...this?!....No, No and No. — Letsgodiving

Really disappointed
★★★★
I know it was a reboot, certain liberties are expected, but this fell short on just about everything... blame the writers and whomever directed it. — Goodkid62

Great Movie
★★★★★
I thought this movie was great. I don't understand how people could not like it. — WesWer

I TOOK A NAP
★★★★★
Some of it was good, some parts sucked. I guessed it rained one day and they drove cars. LAME AF — jbeck70

Much better than the 16 writing it got
★★★★
A little crude but pretty funny. Just another guy movie like Adam Sandler movies — 49 year old dad

Lol, I'm of the gen, and I loved it!
★★★★★
I'm a huge fan of the original series and watched 'em w/my dad many years ago. My son's getting ready to roll out to college and the two of us had a BLAST watching this flick Definitely not the original, nor meant to be. Dax gives an Oscar worthy performance. Period. Of course, if you're looking for 'family entertainment' - it ain't here — AlaskaJaxx

Hilarious
★★★★
This movie seemed to be rated really low by viewers but I liked it. The actors pulled off the characters perfectly. The story line was funny and cute (friendship, divorce and tossing the salad) . — VeganJane

Be Prepared to Laugh
★★★★★
Many laughs while watching movie, loved the comedy. To those looking for the movie to pay homage to the old series, this movie offers a new take and I would think a better direction. — I gotta 5 STAR app!!!

just NOT funny!
★★★★
why its called comedy? i did not even smile once in the movie, its just boring — predictable... like jericho wi

Is good!!
★★★★★
Is a good movie. I've seen worse — Freddito_087

Viewer beware....
★★★★
If you go in with low expectations you won't be disappointed. If you are looking for an hour and half of mind numbing plotless movie time then you won't be disappointed. This is nothing like the original and I'm assuming they weren't even trying to. This is not family friendly at all. It's brainless crude content trying to achieve funny but painfully fails. I'll stick with watching reruns of the original. — Ariauna

It was good!
★★★★★
Don't listen to the negative Nancy's in the review comments. This movie was good and really entertaining toward the end. The nudity wasn't over the top. Maybe flash here and there. It is RATED R. Must the movie industry be responsible for parents who bring kids to watch a R movie? Perhaps PG and under is more appropriate. Thoroughly enjoyed it and glad I didn't let the comments dictate my movie choice. — voyagensc33

Hysterical
★★★★★
I grew up on chips which is one of my best childhood memories. This movie was hysterical and nothing I expected. The Characters were completely different then the old so because it was unexpected I was doubled over. It was a great movie! I needed something like this with all the horror in the world today. I recommend it to those who need a good laugh! — usatruck6

Okay for a Saturday afternoon
★★★★★
Wasn't expecting this to be a decent movie however, it turned out to be pretty good. Has quite a few funny moments, while other parts of the movie are over the top and "typical" hollywood recycled stuff. — Realblog

crap
★★★★
save your money — Bravo4699

Ok
★★★★★
Not as bad as people say it is . — Michigan iPhone user

Get Real!!!!!!!!
★★★★★
This movie is stupidly hilarious... as I feel it was intended to be. And for the dopes who feel that the original Chips 'legacy' has been tarnished, grow up. The legacy of a sitcom, really, three cheers for the Simpsons then... I guess. Oh, and lets not forget, I would have rated it a 4 for great stupidly ridiculous humor, EXCEPT, there are a couple amusing scenes in the trailer that are NOT in the movie????? That is probably illegal somewhere, and for the director/producer/actors/key grips and all the others... that is really lame.... be glad you only lost one star for that. — JS_Mac

GARBAGE
★★★★
THIS time the rotten tomatoes rating is pretty dang accurate...should be 0%. Note to the Hollywood bozos who keep trying to improve on old movies/tv shows...you just don't have the ability...find a new profession. — BabeRufus

Stupid Humor...
★★★★
Is this my favorite comdey of all time? No, but did I laugh - yes. Will I buy it at full price? NO. Is it worth a rental after a few beer - heck yes. Don't be prepared to be blown away, but it is like late night Jimmy Fallon funny one liners. — LynetteRenee

Much fun
★★★★★
Change your mood! — Mousa Almutairi

Funny
★★★★★
I think why people rated this low is because they're comparing it to the old show and its not the old show it will never be that but it is funny and worth the time my husband and i enjoyed it — Jackieee2122

🤢
★★★★
This movie is absolutely awful. Yeah there are a few laughs here and there but it's ultimately ruined by all the crass jokes. — Dudeman790
