CHIPS rated 31% at Rotten Tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes

A rating appeared for CHIPS on Rotten Tomatoes for the first time today. It is currently rated at 31% on the Tomatometer. This rating is based on an average rating of 4.2/10 from 16 movie critic reviews. Of those 16 reviews, only 5 were “fresh” while 11 were “rotten”.

Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle writes, “As light entertainment goes, “CHiPs” is fairly accomplished, and Pena and Shepard make a good team.”

“How bad could “CHiPs” be?” asks Brian Orndorf of “There are more references to analingus than there are motorcycle chases.”

Donald Clarke of Irish Times writes, “What better way to celebrate such a quaint series than with a squalid, incoherent catastrophe that makes one yearn for such relatively harmless entertainments as The A Team film?”

Devan Coggan of Entertainment Weekly says, “While CHIPS sure is goofy, it falls flat compared to other buddy-cop comedies in its genre, relying too heavily on unpleasant sex jokes (often revolving around gay panic) and a nonsensical crime plot.”

The Entertainment Weekly review must be especially awkward considering that Dax Shepard is doing a Facebook Q&A with Entertainment Weekly today at 2:15pm PDT (5:15pm EDT).
