Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: CHiPS abandons the endearing innocence of its source material, using the titular cop show's premise as a setup for aggressively lowbrow gags that prove only mildly arresting at best.

Some laughs, but more iffy stuff in TV-based action comedy.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that CHIPS, inspired by the hit 1970s/'80s TV show, is a "hard-R" action comedy that's chock full of mature content. In particular, there's tons of sex, including lots of naked breasts, an interrupted sex scene, references to sex addiction and masturbation, sexting, and a brief flash of a main character's privates. There's also plenty of violence, some of which is pretty wince-inducing, including an accidental beheading that's shown in some detail. You can also expect frequent chases and explosions, gunshots, fights, and more. Characters drink and pop pills, and the language is very salty (including "f--k," "s--t," and more). One character in particular objectifies women. All of that said, the movie addresses some serious topics amid the mayhem, including marital infidelity and the death of a beloved colleague, and some characters ultimately exhibit both courage and compassion. Dax Shepard and Michael Peña star.
