Whenever the move threatens to work, there's Chevy Chase with his monotone, deadpan cynicism, distancing himself from the material.

If you like Chevy Chase, you'll like this movie. If not, it's just a time killer.

This could be Bob Hope material c1942 and Chase does acquit himself well (though with cool reserve) in the gags-to-plot transitions. What dulls the enterprise is that Ritchie so keeps his distance from every character.

A sparkling light comic mystery of the kind that Hollywood doesn't make anymore -- pity.

A quick, smart, slick piece of comedy filmmaking that features a once-great comedian at the very top of his game.

It's not all about wacky disguises and goofy aliases. At its core, the film is a top notch mystery thriller.

A breezy, peppy frolic and a tour de force for Chase.

What truly holds Fletch together isn't the somewhat off-putting Chase--whose screen presence was always defined by a love-it-or-hate it smugness--but his time-tested collaborators: screenwriter Bergman...and director Michael Ritchie...[Blu-ray]

Twenty-two years later, I get all the jokes, but I remain only pleasantly amused, nothing more, nothing less

Moments of humor that still have legs today. And many moments that don't.
