Editorial Reviews

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.

    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.
    Inheriting a Louisiana mansion, Fletch flies down next to an obnoxious but friendly nasal-surgery candidate. Yet another classic dream sequence, and this one is not to be missed, as "Old White Joe", Fletch fantasizes that his ex-wife's lawyer, his boss and the cute gal from the office all fall at his feet. The imagery from Disney's "Song of the South" is pure genius and you might notice "Ted Underhill" making a cameo appearance at the end of the dream sequence (there must have been 300 extras here or a *whole* lot of CGI ... check out the *very end* of the dream sequence closely).
    I love it. Again beautiful women involved here including the lovely Julianne Phillips. This is Cleavon Little's best work since "Blazing Saddles" (though he was great in the early 1970's "Vanishing Point"). Randall "Tex" Cobb never fails to amuse especially with his "Ben Dover" appearance as a **faux** zooerastia-obsessed transvestite necrophiliac (get a dictionary!). Now this movie doesn't bash Christians, in fact there are some accurately quoted Bible verses. But it does lampoon some who misuse Christianity for money solely.
    Phil Hartman is here as a Bly Bio Chem manager. Richard Libertini is back and a little goosey it appears. Hal Holbrook is here as the vengeful attorney / land owner. And the great Geoffrey Lewis who never fails to deliver an interesting, if not xenophobic and myopic, character, is here.

    Format: DVD
    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 it. As Peter Lemonjello, Fletch tells a studio camera operator that his house is on fire. The guy believes him!

    I do wish that they had used more of the Bibleland sets as it seems so much for so little screen time but the presence of R. Lee Ermey as the eccentric TV Evangelist makes up for it.

    I'm not really that impressed with this lackluster DVD. There are still pictures over the end credits that hint at deleted scenes, but none of them are on here. The 1.85:1 anamorphic picture is fine, as is the Dolby Surround sound design. But it's yet another non-effort by Universal. Fletch Lives really deserved a lot more than this.

    And to any of you who are puzzled why Mr. Underhill is credited in the cast of characters but not actually in the film, he IS. Look closely at the Zipedee Doo-Dah sequence and you can see him as one of the dancers.

    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.

    I caught this movie by chance on USA Family one weekend night, and I'm glad that I stayed tuned! Chevy Chase plays a reporter working out of L.A. that inherits a piece of real estate in the South and soon finds himself being shot at and in the middle of hilarious, wild antics. Chase dresses up as many different inconspicuous characters to find the mysterious murderer that wants his property and him dead. Although one will see that the critics here have bashed the script for its lack of stability and substance, but this older comedy truly fulfills its mission to keep you laughing.

    This is a fun movie if you a)love Fletch; b) love Chevy Chase; and c) use the dull moments to use the restroom and replenish your snacks. Fletch fans will love the new characters that reporter Irwin F. Fletcher creates for his new setting. The basic story line is interesting and the cast features a ton of talent and well known actors. However, it moves a little slow and doesn't grab your attention like the original.
    On what seems like as stroke of luck, Fletch ends up inheriting a mansion in Louisiana and quits his job to settle in. Things don't turn out as expected and Fletch turns to his investigative reporter tactics to get to the bottom of it.
    Put it this way, if you've seen Fletch and can recite every line of the movie (like me and a half dozen of my closest friends), you will want to see this one, too. You will probably like it after having seen it a few times. But if you're new to Fletch or Chevy Chase, stick with the first Fletch movie, the first Vacation movie, the first Caddyshack movie (notice a trend here?), Three Amigos!, Spies Like Us, Funny Farm, The Groove Tube, Foul Play and reruns of Saturday Night Live from the 70s
