Fletch is vintage comedy. I always thought it was a good movie, but it found a soft spot in my life at my last employer. Our intern was always quoting the movie, and one of the other guys also knew just about every line. Then it became a major event – when the intern left to go back to school, we had a big lunch and played the movie in the conference room. The tradition would continue on after that.
Since then I’ve talked many people into picking up Fletch on DVD, and even introduced a few friends to the movie when I was on the road by pulling it up in my Vudu.com account.
Fletch is the kind of comedy that is literally non-stop. Once the plot is presented to you, it gets out of the way and lets you enjoy Chevy Chase at his finest, rattling off memorable one liners with the kind of pacing and frequency that practically leaves you breathless. Fletch is word-play 1980’s comedy the way it should be: you will love it, your friends will love it, and you’ll be quoting it all day, every day. Enjoy it!
