CHiPs is a 2017 American actioncomedybuddy cop film written and directed by Dax Shepard,[4] based on the 1977-1983 television series of the same name created by Rick Rosner. The film stars Shepard as Officer Jon Baker and Michael Peña as Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, with Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody and Vincent D’Onofrio in supporting roles.

Principal photography began on October 21, 2015 in Los Angeles. The film was released on March 24, 2017 by Warner Bros. Pictures, received negative reviews from critics and has grossed $9 million worldwide.


Two middle-aged California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers soon find themselves in a situation like none other when when they get caught up in uncovering a corrupt cop within their own department.


Our Thoughts

CHiPs is a funny movie. I think it did the TV series justice, and had that same “seat of the pants” TV show feel to it. The motorcycle stunts were pretty cool, and so were the characters. I liked it even though the plot was outlandish and there was no sense of urgency, or tension. I can recommend this one as a date flick, because my fiance’ loved it. I give it 3.5 stars for the “laugh out loud” moments, and decent acting. – MR
