The raunch of CHiPs makes it a great comedic ride down the California highway.
Review by Matt CummingsAs a young teen, I spent more than enough time in front of the television, absorbed in now-forgettable series like CHiPs. But there are elements of this campy comedy/drama that still resonate: the excellent motorcycle sequences, those awesome Harley Davidsons, the groovy Big Band music from Season 1. Its revival in theaters this week reflects little of the series' original DNA, but it still works as a hilarious raunchy re-imagining and perhaps a blueprint for a potential franchise. Facebook.
