The Movie: Chips
The Director: Dax Shepard

The Story: 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.
The first thing I will say about this movie is that, other than the name and the uniforms, it has absolutely nothing to do with the 80's TV show and, for me, that was very much a disappointment. Anything and everything you may have loved about the show is gone and has been replaced with a horribly cliche and outdated story along with a level of humor that seems directly target for a middle school audience. Sure, that type of story telling has its pace, but I was really hoping for something different from such an iconic property.
Chips is a movie that has a few laughs but falls well short of any hopes or expectations I might have had. If you've seen the trailer, there really isn't much more you need to see.
