Fletch Lives Details


Though the original [[Feature~V17781~Fletch~fletch]] was drubbed by critics, it proved a major success for star [[Performer~P12488~Chevy Chase~chevychase]]. It was inevitable, then, that a sequel would make an appearance. Surprisingly, Fletch Lives didn't come out until 1989--a full five years after the original. Once more, [[Performer~P84759~Chase~tchase]] stars as Irwin Maurice "Fletch" Fletcher, the gonzo investigative reporter created by novelist [[Performer~P167102~Gregory McDonald~gregorymcdonald]]. Indulging his penchant for disguises and bizarre aliases, Fletch investigates a deep dark mystery at a crumbling Southern plantation. Various friends and enemies are portrayed con brio by [[Performer~P32790~Hal Holbrook~halholbrook]], [[Performer~P42706~Cleavon Little~cleavonlittle]], [[Performer~P56573~Juliane Phillips~juliannephillips]], [[Performer~P13816~Randall "Tex" Cobb~randalltexcobb]], [[Performer~P42318~Richard Libertini~richardlibertini]] and [[Performer~P5240~Richard Belzer~richardbelzer]] ([[Performer~P84759~Chase~tchase]]'s cohort from the old [[Feature~V20968~Groove Tube~thegroovetube]] days). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
