  1. Fletch

    Fletch is a 1985 comedy film about an investigative newspaper reporter, Irwin M. Fletcher. The film was directed by Michael Ritchie and written by Andrew Bergman, based on the popular Gregory Mcdonald novels. Tim Matheson, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, and Joe Don Baker appear in supporting roles. In the 1970s, Burt Reynolds and Mick Jagger were considered to portray Fletch but these suggestions were rejected by Mcdonald. The author agreed to the casting of Chevy Chase despite never seeing the comedian in anything. Chase reportedly enjoyed the role because it allowed him to play several different characters and work with props. In a 2004 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chase confirmed this was his favorite role. Fletch earned positive reviews from critics and performed well at the box office. It has since developed a cult following and was followed by a 1989 sequel, Fletch Lives. A prequel, Fletch Won, has been in talks for over two decades.
