Does the 'CHiPS' movie reboot fall flat?

Buddy action-comedy "CHiPS" is now out in theaters. While the motion picture reboot of the classic television series (1977-1983) is making moviegoers laugh, film critics say "CHiPS" doesn't capture the magic of the original show. It's all crass humor and Hollywood clichés. But the film is not without charm; "CHiPS" boasts talented funnyman Michael Peña and Kristen Bell's husband. What do you think—😂 or 😩?🎥

Film critic Simon Abrams wrote for RogerEbert.com:

This isn't a knowing parody of a beloved show, a la the 2012 reboot/parody '21 Jump Street'; it's a sample of the brain-dead entertainment against which its creators are supposedly reacting.
