Dax Shepard and Michael Pena go red-band in the latest trailer for CHiPs

Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles but for very different reasons. Baker (Dax Shepard) is a beaten up pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello (Michael Pena) is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job. The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click in the latest, profanity-laced, red-band trailer!

When it comes to these R-rated, comedy remakes of older TV shows, I feel that red-band is really the only way to go. Unfortunately this trailer doesn't really paint a much brighter picture as far as the movie is concerned. The gross-out conversational humor feels like it's 10 years too late to the party, and everything else has a "been there, done that" feel to it. More importantly, I'm not really feeling the chemistry between Shepard and Pena. Given this month's release of LOGAN, KONG: SKULL ISLAND and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, there's no question that this one's going to fall by the wayside.

CHIPS will open in theaters on March 31, 2017.
