Chip’s fans were out in force at Cineworld in Dublin’s Parnell Centre on Thursday evening for the special preview screening of the film “CHIPS”. Chips is an action comedy – based on the classic TV series of the same name – which follows Jon Baker (Dax Shepard) and Frank ‘Ponch’ Poncherello (Michael Pena) who have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten up pro-motor-biker 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 hardened pro are teamed together but clash more than click, so kick starting a partnership is easier said than done. Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody, Kristen Bell and Vincent D’Onofrio also co-star in the film.
