Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher, Los Angeles journalist, really lives for his profession. As Jane Doe, he publishes articles that have caused several heads to roll in the past. Now, Fletch is at it again: In disguise as a bum, he lives at the beach, researching drugs and their dealing. One day, Fletch is addressed by Alan Stanwyk, a rich man, who asks him, the bum, a favour. For the sum of $50,000, Fletch should kill poor cancer-ridden Mr. Stanwyk with a gun, so that his wife will get the insurance money. What the guy didn't think of was Fletch's real profession. Returning into normal life, Fletch instantly takes up research not only to find out that Mr. Stanwyk is healthy as life itself but he also runs into certain connections between drug dealing at the beach, Alan Stanwyk, his private jet, the police and a very expensive piece of Land in Utah.

Fletch. Until last week, he was just another mild-mannered reporter fighting for truth, justice and a window office. Now he's being threatened, shot at, accused and arrested. And that's by the people he's trying to help. But there's still one thing even more dangerous than his work. His love life. See more »

My friend in college recommended this movie last year and I finally got around to seeing it today and I just have to say it was absolutely hilarious! The dialog was witty, plot kept my attention, and even though I hate Chevy's new material this was definitely awesome. The lady that played Gail Stanwyk was so hot too I couldn't believe it. The only other movie I recognized her from was "Tombstone", it's a travesty she's not in more as she's such a good actress to go along with her looks. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and am looking forward to watching it again. I highly recommend it if you are one of the unfortunate's that haven't been graced with it's showing yet.
Movies : Sure I'd splurge!
DVD Purchase : Yes, I just hope they digitally remastered it as the VHS copy was kind of blurry.
Rental : An awesome rental!
