Meet the only guy who changes his identity more often than his underwear.
Chevy Chase is at his hilarious best in this suspense-packed comedy thriller based on Gregory McDonald’s best-seller. Irwin Fletch, a.k.a. Fletch is an investigative reporter who’s constantly changing his identity. While working on a drug exposé, Fletch attracts the attention of a strange businessman who wants to be killed so his wife will inherit more insurance. The wily Fletch senses a scam, and soon he’s up to his byline in frame-ups, murder, police corruption and forbidden romance. It’ll be the story of the year, if he can stay alive to meet his deadline!
