Being one of my favorite TV shows from my child hood I was dreading this remake, but if you let go of the past you will enjoy this movie for what it is and its just light fun with some really funny moments.
Plot wise its pretty predictable but is was not 2 hours of my life wasted and in the end I enjoyed the new CHIPS.
Ignore the critic wannabe's and give it a go, just don't expect anything from the 80's or that will make you think.
