I’m gonna give 5 stars to this movie … I’d have to really go 4.5 but 4 is unfair. Fletch is back and it’s great. Leonard Maltin should relax a little bit and lighten up. Starting off in a mafia-controlled seafood restaurant, we find Fletch in drag and the object of desire of a near-sighted Greek man.

My fave film when I was a kid Peggy-Lee Zorba, Nostradamus, The Colonel, Billy-Jean King, Hank Himmler, Claude-Henry Smoot, Peter Lemonjello, Ed Harley, Elmer-Fudd Gantry and Bobby-Lee Schwartz II. Not to mention Fletch himself. Has Chevy Chase ever played so many people in one film?I love Fletch Live, it is so damn funny and cackles with hilarious dialogue. It’s a bloody shame that the critics were beastly, when it first came out. Chevy Chase, once again, nails the role of Fletch and only he can deliver the deadpan sarcasm in a way no other actor can.The plot may be a little weak but it works fine. Fletch quits his job as an investigative reporter after he inherits a plantation mansion in Louisiana. But he stumbles upon another mystery and does his best to unravel it.His disguises will make you grin from ear to ear (Claude Henry Smoot steals the show) and they way he comes out with the most ridiculous of things when he’s talking to people makes you wonder why they ever believe…

not as good as the original but still damn witty This movie is no way as good as the first one, but don’t let that put you off. It has some very funny and witty moments throughout with some great one liners by Chevy.Highlights include:- Chevy as Claude Henry Schmoot, a guest healer on a tv evangelist show- Chevy as a member of the KKK- Chevy confessing his sins to evangelist preacher “I parked in a handicapped zone. Actually on a handicapped person – but I told him I’d be back in five minues so that’s not such a big deal.”The film does run out of steam towards the end a little but is definitely worth a view.
