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.Written by

Chevy Chase is 6'4". Tim Matheson is 6'2". Even with the same waist size, Stanwyk's pants should be way too short for Fletch. However, the height difference only applies to actors, while their characters, according to the plot, have the same height and build. If actors can play characters of age, race or even gender different from their own, they can certainly play characters of a slightly different height. See more »

I always use a little chewing gum on these rides. It filters out the pollutants.

Of course you've got some good grillwork there to keep out the ozone. I gotta get this thing up to 95, uh, check out the fluorocarbon output.

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!
