Storyline

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 Warner Bros.

California Highway Patrol does not endorse this film...at all.
30 April 2017 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

I had read other IMDb reviews on this one going in, so I probably should've considered another film elsewhere. But being a bit of a CHiPs fan, i wanted to see how badly the remake factory in Hollywood butchered this one.

The only thing that was lifted from the TV series was the names - Baker & Poncherello and everything else is simply unoriginal. And when i say that, i mean sex and toilet humor. it's all been done before and it's not funny anymore. Even the idea of cameos are unoriginal. You just knew Erik Estrada was gonna pop up somewhere.

The plot is a hackplot - Within the CHP lies a group of corrupt cops. Our heroes have to find out who they are, provided that Jon Baker can stop dwelling on his cheating wife and Ponch can stop dwelling on his desire for sex to the point he has a chronic masturbation problem. I'm not kidding.

Oh yeah, and Jane Kaczmarek? I'm pretty sure she had a body double but her character appears as a topless, sex-depraved cougar in this one. She's also the boys' boss. I'll let you think about that one.

To sum this one up, Hollywood sure loves it's 70's/80's TV show remakes (Baywatch comes out later this year) But i've learned from watching past remakes like Dukes of Hazzard and Starsky & Hutch never to expect much from remakes. just a complete soiling of what made TV back then so classic.
