At one point during the narration, Fletch quips that even Larry Holmes could figure out that the guy who shot at him was the same guy who stole his Lakers watch. This guy was played by former boxer Randall "Tex" Cobb. Cobb's most famous bout as a boxer was in 1982 during which he was beaten to a bloody pulp by Larry Holmes, but refused to be knocked down.

Fletch (Chevy Chase) is a reporter for a Los Angeles newspaper, but he acts more like a detective. When an obscure relative leaves him a Louisiana mansion in his will, Fletch is naturally curious.
The movie gained a mixed to negative reception, and I can understand why. While there is a certain level of fun with any classic Chevy Chase film, this one has almost none of what made the first one great. Much lighter on the antics, and much heavier on trying to play up southern stereotypes for cheap laughs.
Hal Holbrook and R. Lee Ermey make for some good supporting cast members, but they just are not enough to save this one. Entertaining, yes, but not the sequel it should have been.
