1985 Certificate: pg


Chevy Chase stars in this highly enjoyable comedy thriller full of chuckles. He's supercool reporter Irwin ('Don't call me Irwin') Fletcher, who finds his low-profile seashore hangout is the key to some very big men in drugs trafficking when one of them hires 'Fletch the beach bum' as an assassin. Chase is ever ready with a wisecrack, while character actors Joe Don Baker and M Emmet Walsh add super support.
