Daring Fireball mentions an interview with Chevy Chase where he mentions that Fletch is his favorite of the movie’s he has made.
I remember it as being one of my favorites, too, but it has been so long that it may be suffering from Gilligan’s Island syndrome (loved the show as a kid, realize now that I simply wasn’t yet smart enough to realize how truly lacking the show was).
I tried adding Fletch to my netflix queue but, oddly, it isn’t available . It is listed, but just not available.
For whatever reason, it went out of print as a DVD. But it appears that it will be re-released on May 1st. Neat!
