I found "Chips" in the comedy section on Netflix, and not being familiar with it, I decided to give it a watch as I do enjoy comedies.
I was familiar with some of the cast, so I had somewhat of a bit of notion of what to expect from the movie. And I will say that "Chips" rose to the occasion and really delivered top notch comedy entertainment. I was genuinely entertained throughout the course of the entire movie.
"Chips" was a good combination of comedy and action, as well as having a good character gallery, which really made the movie come to life. Especially so since it was characters that you instantly bonded with and took a liking to.
I must admit that I am not overly keen on Dax Shepard usually, but he was really great in this movie and really carried his role quite well. But for me, then it was Michael Peña who carried the movie with his hilarious performance, and he was so greatly cast for the role. But there were also lots of other good performances throughout the movie.
There are many funny scenes in the movie, and they had me laughing heartily throughout the course of the movie. And the chemistry between Shepard and Peña was just phenomenal, both as actors but also their on-screen characters.
"Chips" is a gem in the comedy genre, and one that definitely need more recognition because it is just through and through entertaining and funny.
