Chevy Chase returns to the screen as the reckless reporter I.M. Fletcher, investigative reporter, in Fletch Lives. This time, the chameleon-like reporter ventures to Belle Isle, a sprawling 80-acre Louisiana plantation which Fletch inherits from his aunt. Trouble begins when a lovely attorney mysteriously turns up dead, a neighborly lawyer (Hal Holbrook) warns him to leave town and a ravishing real estate agent (Julianne Phillips) comes calling with a persistent offer he may not be able to refuse. Fletch must unravel the reason for the mad land scramble with his trademark bag of hilarious disguises in this fast-moving comedy.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Chase is such an agreeably low-pressure comedian that a movie has to be very inept to be as irritating as Fletch Lives.
Fresh: Chevy Chase is perfectly suited to playing a smirking, wisecracking, multiple-identitied reporter in Fletch Lives.
Rotten: In this meager sequel, as in its popular predecessor, Chevy Chase demolishes every easy target in sight with a quip of the tongue. Some of the lines are funny, but after a while you just want to smack him.
Rotten: With arbitrary laugh lines coming along to strip the credibility from every situation and the integrity from every character, there's hardly a moment in the new film that seems as authentically alive as a California Raisins commercial.
'nuff said. Now watch and know why Chevy is a comedic god
