Fletch 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. Arriving in Louisiana, events occur that make him suspect that all is not well, and there is more to the property than he has been led to believe. Written by

When chasing off the Klan, Fletch yells "Zulu, Zulu, Zulu" into the megaphone and then continues in gibberish, interjecting the line, "Gene Hackman kick your ass!" The previous year Gene Hackman had played an F.B.I. agent battling the Klan in the movie Mississippi Burning (1988). See more »

When Gregory McDonald created the character I. M. Fletcher "Fletch", he must have had Chevy Chase in mind. Both "Fletch Lives" and "Fletch" are perfect vehicles for Chevy's brand of dry humor. Snappy dialogue and amusing disguises by Chase make these two Fletch movies, his best film work. If you like Chevy Chase you'll love "Fletch Lives and "Fletch".
