Unlikable Film Based Upon A Likable TV Show
2 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I was never a great fan of the 1970s show CHIPS. Most of my peers liked it a lot and I could see why because it was a fairly likable show featuring a couple of fairly likable characters played by a couple fairly likable actors. The downside was that like so much American television from the period it gets a little bit preachy , but apart from that it was a likable show featuring a couple of likable characters in the California Highway Patrol in a likable American TV show

"Hey Theo can you use any other adjectives apart from likable ? otherwise this comment will end up becoming unlikable"

Sorry to bring irony in to this comment but you can see the point I'm making. When I saw the trailer I thought "Why does Hollywood continually remake popular TV shows as crude comedies that have nothing in common with the source material ? " Well one reason might be cynical capitalism where they know they're fleecing the public. By the time bad word of mouth spreads the damage and the profits are done so nothing else matters

If you've seen the trailers you'll be scracting your head what this film has in common with the TV show CHIPS. It contains toilet humour , gay jokes and other near the knuckle humour . If nothing at least the trailer is accurate . Within the first ten minutes I'd lost count of the number of F and S words featured so much so I thought I was watching a Scorsese movie. On top of that the humour is dreadful featuring toilet humour , sexual jokes about someone's wife and ... well stuff that 15 year old boys would consider juvenile . Some people might enjoy this but I found it a genuinely unlikable film
