Storyline

Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank Ponch Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten-up former pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside-job inside the CHP. The inexperienced rookie and the hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kick-starting a real partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker's unique bike skills and Ponch's street savvy it might just work...if they don't drive each other crazy first. Written by Warner Bros.

Goofs

When Ponch and Baker go to TJ's second home (0:51:38), TJ and Barton's drivers license are shown to them, you can notice clearly that David Barton's Drivers License shows an error in his Date of Birth (DOB), it says 41/21/1976. It was probably supposed to read 01/21/1976 or 11/21/1976. See more »

This is the worst movie I have ever seen
26 March 2017 | by (Dallas) – See all my reviews

At least 3 occasions I almost walked out, but my wife wanted to suffer through to the end so we stayed. This was the typical "cop- buddy" comedy, with one key difference from say the Starsky and Hutch remake: It was not funny at all.

When I say not funny at all, I did not even crack a smile, and found myself looking at my watch. The plot is totally ridiculous, and the jokes were primarily about Ponche's sex addiction where he has to masturbate in public bathrooms, yes I am not kidding. Another theme is about Ponche's fetish about eating women's butts, clean or dirty. Yes, I am not kidding. That was a central plot line.

Then there is John Baker his partner. He is basically portrayed as a opiate pill head who drives his bike high on opiates who has not taken a dump in weeks.

Then there is the "hilarious" sequence where Ponch keeps crashing his motorcycle. Here again, it just was not funny.

I guess if you are a teenager you might find the non stop bathroom/sexual stuff funny. I just cannot fathom how any adult could walk out of the theater with any other impression than they just wasted 2 hours of their life.
