‘CHIPS’ Trailer: California, It’s Time to Party

Subscribe to K-Fox 95.5 on

You tilted your head to the side and went, “Huh,” when you first heard about it. You said to yourself, “Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about that,” when you saw casting news about it. Now, you can see it for yourself — or, at least, two minutes and forty-two seconds of it: Dax Shepard’s CHIPS movie remake finally has its very first trailer.

The CHIPS trailer debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night, and it is certainly about two California Highway Patrolmen who ride motorcycles. Shepard plays Jon Baker, a rookie to the force who’s partnered with fellow newcomer Ponch (Michael Pena), and, needless to say, their partnership gets off to a bit of a rocky start. This version is a lot less family friendly than the original ’80s TV series and rated R — you can tell because it has crotch jokes. Like, a weird amount of them.

Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten up pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job—inside the CHP.

The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker’s bike skills combined with Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy along the way.

CHIPS is written and directed by Shepard, also stars Roza Salazar, Adam Brody, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Kristen Bell (as Shepard’s character’s wife, suspend your disbelief everyone!), and hits theaters March 24.
