    I watched "Fletch" a few days ago and loved it. I couldn't wait to check out the sequel, "Fletch Lives". I was a little wary, though; comedy sequels don't exactly have the best track record. They usually repeat the exact same jokes and grow tiresome halfway though.

    Luckily, "Fletch Lives" manages to deliver another solid detective story with even more laughs than its predecessor. This is mostly because the comedy is more "in your face" this time around; while the…

    Chase's sequel to Fletch is just as good as the first movie, just as funny too. If you're a fan of his, you really should see this movie.

    Not nearly as good as Fletch, but an automatic four stars. This is Irwin M. Fletch we're talking about here... Irwin Mahatma Fletch.

    Excellent sequel. The supporting cast really shines on this one.

    "You don't think I used too many images of myself? -- Nah, it worked for the Ayatollah."

    Again, it never gets the credit it deserves, but Fletch Lives is hilarious and they threw in the dude from Blazing Saddles who makes it extra funny.

    Chevy Chase repraises his role of news reported/wanna be private eye in this enjoyable sequel. Fletch Lives goes for the "fish out of water" scenario as the title character find himself embroiled in strange goings on in Louisana after inheriting a mansion "down south".
    Chase is on top form wheeling out a host of characters as he tries to piece the mystery together.
    Its just a shame Chevy ( a witnessed by his toe curling comedy roast ) turned into a hunourless wanker shortly after this.

    Even though it is a complete repetition of moves made in the first film it still is so much fun.

    Chase once again carries the film and is surrounded by an absolutely fantastic supporting cast. Where the comedy is equally successful as its predecessor, where it lags behind is in the plot. It is a bit too straightforward and uninspired to really leave a mark.

    It is still surprisingly entertaining making this series a relic from the eighties well worth checking out.

    Fletch Lives has some genuinely funny moments but doesn't achieve the same kind of casual, goofy fun of it's predecessor. Perhaps because Fletch Lives was just a re-do of Fletch that wasn't entirely necessary, just like that second trip to the buffet. It always seems like a good idea but after it's done you're left feeling bloated and gassy. What a great cast though, Cleavon Little, R. Lee Ermy and Randall "Tex" Cobb!

    Chevy Chase is back in his last good movie. This time around Fletch inherits his mansion in Louisiana,after he gets there his female attorney gets murdered and his mansion burnt to the ground. His trademark of goofy characters is in tact here but director Michael Ritchie who also did the first one struggle with coming up with some good characters. Overall the film is not bad it's quite funny at times and some of the personas that Chase uses are really great.

    Obviously not as good as the original, but it still makes me laugh.
