Fletch is a 1985 comedy film about a wisecracking investigative newspaper reporter, Irwin M. Fletcher (Chevy Chase), who writes under the name of Jane Doe. The film was based on the popular Gregory McDonald novels.
In the 1970s, Burt Reynolds and Mick Jagger were considered to portray Fletch on the big screen 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 several positive reviews from critics and performed well at the box office and home video. It has since developed a huge cult following.
