It’s hard to pinpoint when Dax Shepard’s “Chips” takes a sharp turn into indefensibly racist humor, but one place to start would be a passing reference to Michael Peña as “the little brown one.” It’s not the only cringe-worthy moment.
It may be unfair to pigeonhole Shepard as endorsing ugly stereotypes, even if he did write, produce, and direct a movie that derives 90 percent of its humor from gay jokes, race jokes, and punchlines about attractiveness that basically amount to a beta version of the pre-Facebook website “Hot or Not.” But they’re all there, in this overblown and completely baffling adaptation of a 1970’s TV series that literally nobody asked for.

Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, The Grey) is the latest in a long line of Hollywood creatives hired to work on Sony's live-action Uncharted movie. Though he's known as a writer/director, Carnahan is only working on the Uncharted script as the film will be helmed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, This Is Where I Leave You). Carnahan and Levy are but two of the latest names signing up for the project after creatives such as David O. Russell (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook), Neil Burger (Limitless, Divergent) and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, upcoming Baywatch reboot) have all departed the project for various reasons. The film has been in development since 2008 and the closest it ever came to actually filming was a few years back when Mark Wahlberg was attached to star.
