Hollywood's quest to reboot every idea has brought us to a reimagining of classic cop show CHiPS. Following the adventures of Ponch and Jon with the California Highway Patrol, that's about where the movie stops being similar to the show it's trying to honor.
Dax Shepard and Michael Peña star in the titular roles in a film looking to cash in on a 21 Jump Street-esque level of success. Sure it's just a trailer, but it doesn't look to be off to a good start.
Check out the trailer below for numerous crash-and-burn jokes mostly centered around teenage "humor" and yoga pant fetishes.
The internet's reaction to the trailer hasn't been kind...
I was really hoping for good things from the new CHiPs movie trailer, but ugh. Just a lot of gay panic jokes.— Leather Adventures (@LthrAdventures) January 12, 2017
That 'CHiPs' trailer...oof.— Brent McKnight (@BrentMMcKnight) January 12, 2017
Just watched the #CHiPs reboot trailer. When did it become acceptable again to have a running joke about being homophobic?— D Geek (@GeekGirlRants) January 12, 2017
