A journalist with wit and style goes to solve the riddle

Classic! In this movie about a journalist who wants to uncover a drug smuggling ring at the beach of LA, Chevy Chase shows his comic genius. Taking on different personalities throughout the movie this is entertaining and smart at the same time. Whether it's the dealing with the Underwoods or the police chief, his boss or any person he encounters, Fletch makes it happen.

One of the best movies ever - there is a second film, which is not as awesome but still watchable.

Hope that helps and convinces you to watch it...

You can read the novel as well (vhs)

If the 80s were so cool, indubitably Chevy made a contribution: here he shows how versatile and funny he was, faraway of today kind who makes tons for nothing: with his big, cool attitude, he definitely proves he is a well educated person, gentle, caring and for sure totally inspired to be crazy and funny with only small details.

As all good thrillers, an original investigator is not enough and there must be an original case as well: here it's perfect and the investigation is really interesting to follow!

At last, if you love the 80s, you won't be disappointed: sunny LA, Lakers vs Celtics and the expected synthesizer score that really gives energy to the scenes...

Being so happy with this witty movie, i remember to have read the original novel from McDonald and they are truly like the movie: funny, fast and gripping! So take whatever Fletch book, think about Chevy in it and you will find hours of happiness!

Struggles to deliver the laughs and excitement.

Fletch attempts to do for Chevy Chase what Beverly Hills Cop did for Eddie Murphy: turn the comedian into a wisecracking, street-wise hero who is always one step ahead of the bad guys.

It doesn't work.

Chase gives it his best shot, but the part simply isn't right for him: he's much more suited to playing the lovable, well-meaning fool, as seen in the Vacation movies, Spies Like Us and ¡Three Amigos!. Of course, it doesn't help either that the script is so short on genuine laughs and decent action, the several scenes involving Fletch sporting a variety of crazy guises providing only moderate giggles, the excitement limited to one unimpressive car chase and some brief gun action.

The Beverly Hills Cop connection goes so far as to having Harold Faltermeyer providing the score, but his music for Fletch is nowhere near as good as Axel F, being extremely monotonous and incredibly intrusive (the same few notes repeated again and again and again, no matter what the situation).

5.5 out of 10, generously rounded up to 6 for the lovely Geena Davis, who has a supporting role as Fletch's loyal newsroom assistant Larry (huh?!?!).
