As Chevy Chase's best starring vehicle, it inverts the novels' occasional darkness into a quick-witted quip machine. But that energy feels appropriately extemporaneous here in making defenses fall or hackles rise. Either way, Fletch gets the story.

Admittedly, the storyline weaves all over the place, but no matter - Chase's performance and a plethora of daft and witty situations carry it past some structural rough spots.

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]

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.
December 8, 2007
Fast-paced and witty, this is Chase's best solo venture to date, and will hold almost anyone's attention for its well-edited 98 minutes.

Michael Ritchie's 1985 mystery comedy has the pleasant, modest feel of a Fox B picture from the 30s.

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

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

One of the more quotable comedies of the 1980s
May 20, 2003
A lightweight, breezy experience that, by never pretending to be anything more than what it is, disarms criticism.
March 28, 2003
Moments of humor that still have legs today. And many moments that don't.
February 6, 2003
My favorite comedy of all time
February 2, 2003
One of Chevy Chase's better comedies, which admittedly ain't saying a whole lot.
