Warner Bros Releases First Trailer For  'C.H.I.P.S.'  Remake

I'm on the fence about this one. Let's see what you think.

Hollywood's quest to recapture things that were fun from the 70s and 80s rears it's head. This time it's the big-screen remake of the TV show "C.H.I.P.S." that ran from 1977 to 1983, starring Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox. Michael Peña and Dax Shepard bring Ponch and The Other Guy to the Silver Screen, unfortunately what we get is a lot of dick gags and forced attempts at humor. Shepard also wrote and Directed this. 

official description for this movie states:

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 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.


Maybe the rest of the film is funnier and more clever than the trailer. And it does have Peña's great acting skills to make the best of this. Take a look.


"C.H.I.P.S." starrring Michael Peña, Dax Shepard, Jessica MacNamee, Kristen Bell, Adam Brody, Ryan Hansen, and Vincent D'Onofrio destroys your childhood memories when it hits U.S. theaters on March 24, 2017.

About the Author - IvCNuB4

IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
