Chevy Chase is at his hilarious best as Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher, a newspaper reporter who changes his identity more often than his underwear. While working on a drug expose, he stumbles onto a scam that gets him up to his byline in murder, police corruption and forbidden romance. For this ace newsman, it'll be the story of the year, if he can only stay alive till the deadline. Just don't call him "Irwin"!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A lightweight, breezy experience that, by never pretending to be anything more than what it is, disarms criticism.
Fresh: A breezy, peppy frolic and a tour de force for Chase.
Rotten: Whenever the move threatens to work, there's Chevy Chase with his monotone, deadpan cynicism, distancing himself from the material.
Fresh: Michael Ritchie's 1985 mystery comedy has the pleasant, modest feel of a Fox B picture from the 30s.
This is a hilarious movie
5 Stars is not enough!
This is and always will be my favorite movie of all time!
I really miss movies like this
Chevy Chase is the funniest comedian of the 80's, without question. If you don't understand his delivery that's unfortunate. Penderass Penderan. Scotch-Romanian!! Sugar, Mister Poon? my brother and I laugh at every joke for 90 minutes straight and it's our favorite movie. The plot is decent and you will love all the keyboards songs in the backround...
