The California Highway Patrol buddies are back. In the newly re-minted slapstick comedy CHIPS, based on the 1970s television series of the same name, Michael Peña plays FBI agent Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, who is undercover to catch crooked cops in the California justice system. He’s paired with rookie cop Jon Baker, played by Dax Shepard (better known as guy who struck gold and got Kristen Bell to marry him)—a total screw-up who joined the force to prove to his wife (played by aforementioned queen Kristen Bell) that he can be a real adult. The two officers get into a whole bunch of hijinx, exposing bad cops and making an absurd number of boner jokes. Humans are not cutting this frat boy mentality movie any slack, saying it’s a waste of your money and time, but what about the dogs? Here’s what they had to say:
“I wish this movie were about potato chips instead of two dummies.” –Bella, 12 (Collie)
“Would have traded the 100+ boner jokes for bone jokes.” –Toby, 8 (Rottweiler)
“The pool Kristen Bell was swimming in (fully clothed for whatever reason) looked fun! I’d spend hours and hours in there!” –Milly, 3 (Black Lab)
“I didn’t understand why Michael Peña’s character was so obnoxious about male nudity. I sniff all my friends’ butts, girls and boys!” –Penny, 3 (Mix)
“The official hashtag for this movie is #chiphappens? My vets pulled funnier wordplay out of my butt after taking its temperature.” –Dodi, 7 (Pit bull)
Now that you’ve read the dog reviews, will you be seeing CHIPS in theaters, or opt to binge-eat chips at home watching TV with your dog? No judgment either way.
