This is one of Chevy Chase's finest performances! He takes his comedic genius up a step for this film. The disguises, mannerisms, and funny dialogue showcase him perfectly. No one can slide those one-liners in like he can.
He's Baba au Rum - Holistic Teamster, Magic "Fletch" Christian - Los Angeles Lakers, Ted Nugent - Beach Bum, Igor Stravinsky - Real Estate Developer, Harry S. Truman - Insurance Agent, G. Gordon Liddy - Ajax Supervisor, and a host of of others.
Look for Larry "Flash" Jenkins ("Ferris Bueller's Day Off"), Joe Don Baker, Tim Matheson, and the beautiful Dana Wheeler-Nicholson. Plus Geena Davis, George Wendt ("Cheers"), Richard Libertini ("The In-Laws") and Tony Longo ("Eraser"). M. Emmett Wash is the rubber-gloved doctor who examines his patients VERY thoroughly. And there's William Sanderson of TV's "Newhart". And finally Burton Gilliam of "Blazing Saddles". Whew!!!
Chase's one-liners and trickery are so subtle that it probably confounds most professional movie critics. They're always tuned to either the person he's playing or the role he's fulfilling. The autopsy scene is not to be forgotten, but you may have to turn up the volume for the full effect (sorry about that!).
Learn the one-liners here and you'll have an automatic response for most everday situations. Excellent soundtrack as well.
If Chevy had a bright spot in his career, this is certainly one of them. Every line, every minute, all ad libbed, no script, no idea what he will say next, just Chevy doing what he does best. Christmas vacation, Vacation, CaddyShack, no comparison to the original Fletch. If you've never seen this movie, you absolutely have to and considering it's from 1985, where have you been? I think I've seen this movie 100 times and I think I'll watch it 100 more before I go the way of the dodo. If you're having a bad day at work, lost your job, lost a girlfriend or boyfriend or just want to smile, pop this DVD in and start laughing from start to finish. If you don't even chuckle while watching this zany farce, you might need mental help for sense of humor submission.
What a great moment in movie history when the Doctor asks Fletch to "drop your shorts and bend over Mister Babar" Moments later you hear Chevy hurl out the song "MOOOOOOOOOOOOOON River! Thank you doc, you ever serve time? Doctor: Breathe easy... Fletch: "you using the whole fist doc?"
Other good notables are the sweet acting of Tim Mattheson and Genna Davis. Tim Mattheson, most known for his lead role as head fraternity brother (Otter) in Animal House, does a 180 and tries for the evil husband with a financial darkside.Read more ›
