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 tells a beach drifter in one scene that he "feels like a hundred dollars". This line is also said by Ty Webb in Caddyshack (1980), a role also played by Chevy Chase. See more »

Are you a cop?
As far as you know.
Are you gonna take me to jail for car theft?
Why? Did you steal the car?
I sure did.
Well, I'm not even sure that's a crime anymore. There've been a lot of changes in the law.

This movie is over the top hillarious - I don't know what hyped up dope that the last person who left a comment was on, but I LOVE this movie! What really makes the movie is both Fletch's imagination, his flair for developing different characters, and especially his speed talking. examples include "I love your body Larry (Geena Davis)" while on the phone in front of a hotel clerk, "Nugent, Ted Nugent" when asked by Alan what his name was, "What kind of a name is Poon anyways?" asks Mr. Boyd, to which Fletch's reply is, "Comanche Indian". This movie totally rocks and you will love seeing it AGAIN and AGAIN!!! It is so much better than jay and silent bob strike back, you'll be laughing for hours! enjoy!
