Fletch Lives, Second Movie in the Fletch Series
Fletch Lives is the 1989 sequel to the highly regarded comedy Fletch, which starred Chevy Chase, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, and Tim Matheson. Fletch Lives stars Chevy Chase, in a reprisal of his role of Erwin “Fletch” Fletcher, Hal Holbrook, Julianne Phillips, and Cleavon Little.
The sequel didn’t quite live up to the reputation of Fletch. Although Chase himself could be funny at times, the script was not as strong and the gags in it were simply not as good as in the first. As a result, the movie reviews were generally negative.
The original movie and characters were based on those in the popular Fletch novel series, written by Gregory MacDonald.
