Fletch (1985)

When I was a kid visiting with my Dad on the weekends, we used to watch all sorts and kind of fun movies. One of these movies which I came to discover was Fletch!

Now Fletch happens to be a personal favorite of mine, with how silly it is. Chevy Chase I also think really does make it for the movie as well with his convincing ability to portray a large variety of characters in an utterly hilarious way just really sets the tone of the movie nicely!

Directed by Michael Ritchie (Smile & The Bad News Bears) and Written by Gregory McDonald (The Brave) and starring Chevy Chase (National Lampoon’s Vacation series) Tim Matheson (Animal House) Joe Don Baker (The Dukes of Hazzard).

Fletch tells the story of Irwin ‘Fletch’ Fletcher (Chase) Who is an undercover reporter who works the streets! While covering a story about the drug scene at a beach in LA, Fletch is approached by wealthy Aviation company owner Alan Stanwyk (Matheson) to kill him!

Chevy Chase and Richard Libertini in 'Fletch.'

Thinking that there is a story there Fletch agree’s to do so in an effort to get the story. While running around to get the story Fletch uncovers more then he bargains for when Fletch uncovers police corruption going all the way to the top!

With the Police Chief (Baker) doing everything that he can to uncover the truth about what Stanwyck is really doing and being chased by Stanwyck’s goons. It is a race against time to get the story out before the story gets him!

If I were you dear reader, I highly recommend that you check this out, I am pretty certain it will have you laughing to the point of tears!
