Trivia

Fletch dreams about a Song of the South (1946) re-enactment. Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold mentioned the theme song "Zippedie Doo Dah", having an outburst in National Lampoon's Vacation (1983). National Lampoon, in turn, spoofed Disney Pictures: owner of "South". See more »

Goofs

When Fletch rides the motorcycle through the moving boxcar, the train is rolling from right to left. When the gang leader tries to jump through the first scene shows him after leaving the ramp and the train is rolling in the same direction. The next scene shows the wheel of the motorcycle coming through the side of the boxcar and after that, it shows the train rolling in the opposite direction with the wheel of the motorcycle in front of the open door. If the biker missed the door with the train moving, the wheel would be behind the door, not in front of it. See more »

Quotes

Fletch: What do you mean, toxic waste?
Frank: Well, it's some special stuff. There's only eleven places in the country that makes this shit.
Fletch: Where?... Frank, just give me the ones that aren't in New Jersey.
Frank: Uh, there's only one.

Another classic Chevy Chase film. This film is only just better than the previous movie. There are plenty of wise-cracks and smart remarks to keep you laughing. A must see for Chevy Chase fans and comedy fans in general. This film is very similar to the original. Irwin Fletcher has inherited a mansion from his Aunt who has passed away. Soon enough Fletch finds that his land is worth more than he expected, around lets say $250,000. Remember this is back in 1989 and that was a hell of a lot of money back then! Soon enough Fletch discovers that whoever wants his land, will not hesitate to rid him as well. I don't want to give away too much information, it will be better for you to discover it for yourself. Pros - Entertaining Story, many hilarious jokes, Chevy Chase. Cons - Last Fletch film starring Chevy Chase, not quite a satisfying ending for the two films Overall a must see and a guaranteed laugh. Heres a tip, invite a few mates over your place, order some pizza and you are set for a night of entertainment. Movies don't get much better than this.
