About the Movie

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. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 1, 2015

Fresh: Chevy Chase is perfectly suited to playing a smirking, wisecracking, multiple-identitied reporter in Fletch Lives. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 1, 2015

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. – Chris Willman, Los Angeles Times, Jul 1, 2015

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. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune, Jul 1, 2015

Not as good as the original

This movie is no where near as good as the original and I sort of lost intrest about 3/4s of the way through but it's a good movie none the less. If you go into this thinking about the original you will not enjoy it. If you go into this looking for a comedic yet stupid comedic comedy then you will get your joy out of this. Overall, good not great! Hope that helped!
