Win an Irwin Fletcher Special Edition Blu-ray Double Feature with ‘Fletch’ and ‘Fletch Lives!’

“That spleen was the spitting image of my dead brother”
– Fletch

Comedy legend Chevy Chase (Foul Play) is at his fetching best in this suspense-packed and laugh-stacked thriller based on Gregory Mcdonald’s bestseller. Irwin Fletcher, a.k.a. Fletch (Chase), is an investigative reporter who changes his identity more often than his underwear. While working on a drug exposé, Fletch attracts the attention of a strange businessman (Tim Matheson, Up the Creek) 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! Take fast-paced direction by Michael Ritchie (Prime Cut, Diggstown), add an uproarious screenplay by Andrew Bergman (The In-Laws), sprinkle in a spicy cast with Joe Don Baker, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Richard Libertini, M. Emmet Walsh, George Wendt, George Wyner, Kenneth Mars, Geena Davis and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and you’ve got the makings of Chevy’s funniest chase ever!

Chevy Chase returns to the screen as the reckless I.M. Fletcher, investigative reporter, in Fletch Lives. This time, the chameleon-like reporter ventures to Belle Isle, a sprawling 80-acre Louisiana plantation which Fletch inherits from his aunt. Trouble begins when a lovely attorney mysteriously turns up dead, a neighborly lawyer (Hal Holbrook, Creepshow) warns him to leave town, and a ravishing real estate agent comes calling with a persistent offer he may not be able to refuse. Fletch must unravel the reasons for the mad land scramble with his trademark bag of hilarious disguises in this fast-moving comedy-mystery. Directed by Michael Ritchie (Semi-Tough, The Couch Trip), written by Leon Capetanos (Down and Out in Beverly Hills) based on Gregory Mcdonald’s bestselling books, and sporting a spunky supporting cast with Julianne Phillips, R. Lee Ermey, Richard Libertini, Randall “Tex” Cobb, Cleavon Little, George Wyner, Geoffrey Lewis, Richard Belzer and Phil Hartman.
