Consensus: CHiPS abandons the endearing innocence of its source material, using the titular cop show's premise as a setup for aggressively lowbrow gags that prove only mildly arresting at best.

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

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

A vacuous, unfunny, dull, and vapid cesspool of nonsense.

Whatever CHiPs is, it fails to be a lovable adaption based on a TV show from back in 1977. Fans waited years (especially 24 years of pain and impatience) for… More
