A rookie officer is teamed with a hardened pro at the California Highway Patrol, though the newbie soon learns his partner is really an undercover Fed investigating a heist that may involved some crooked cops.
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
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. See more »
What idiot gave the no talent Dax Shepard money to make this soft porn version of a beloved show! This is what happens when a Hollywood egomaniac with no talent is given money! Holy cow, how desperate Hollywood has become to make this and actually ask for money to see it.
There is no story, no plot, just cheap naked bits, no pun intended. And yes, Dax works out, we get it, but so do 1000 other actors. There is no reason for any of this nonsense on the screen. It isn't funny! HORRIBLE MOVIE, not even rent worthy, and honestly, they should be paying us to sit through this film! To find the so called "Story", this could be edited down to 12 minutes.
