Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher is a Los Angeles journalist who really lives for his profession. As Jane Doe, he publishes articles that have caused several heads to roll in the past. This time, Fletch is in disguise as a bum, living 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.

A funny and entertaining movie. I love Chevy Chase's acting, reminds me of John Ritter from "Three's Company" with his impersonations and sporadic comments used to throw people off. I also liked that it was like a hard-boiled investigation. Movies nowadays would just focus on the humor instead of the story, but this movie manages to balance both. A little surprised that it's rated PG though, as there was quite a bit of cursing, several anatomical jokes, and a couple of sexual references. Guess certification content wasn't seen too strictly back then.

Fleeetch- Gotta love the Fletch! Aside from a dire 80's soundtrack, this movie offers a hilarious performance by Chevy Chase- bears repeated viewings.

Chevy Chase vehicle, and the production values haven't aged well. Thin plot, some funny (though adolescent) moments.

Chevy Chase stars as Fletch, a journalist working undercover at the beach to try and crack the local drug scene. One day, a man approaches him with an interesting proposition: he wants Fletch to kill the man because he is dying from cancer. In exchange he tells Fletch he'll give him lots of money and a ticket out of the country. Fletch immediately suspects a scam and starts investigating by using different undercover names and disguises, but he soon realizes that he's become ensnared in a network of scandalous lies, corruption, and greed.

Coarse Language: Some swearing, including a couple of uses of the s-word, one use of the d-word (the anatomical one), a couple of a-words, a few h-words, two middle fingers (from two separate people), and a couple other swear words.
