** In the sequel Fletch makes the same mistake, but thinks he has insurance by having a friend ready to blow the whistle if anything happens to him. [[spoiler:Then TheDragon hauls in his friend at gunpoint.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyPrepared: Understated, but notice that Fletch brings ''two'' copies of the letter he wrote to Stanwyk's house. Y'know, just in case someone interrupted Stanwyk reading it out loud and he needed to take over.

* AmoralAttorney: In both films, Fletch is bothered by his ex-wife's incredibly annoying alimony attorney Melvyn Gillette, who he despises almost as much as his ex-wife. (Supposedly, Melvin was able to get a rather unfair settlement in his wife's favor.) [[spoiler:Fletch gets even with him at the end of the second film, however, when he shows up offering to forego all future alimony payments (and never show his face there again) in exchange for the Belle Isle property, which he believes to be valuable. Fletch, barely able to contain his joy, happily signs over the land, which unbeknownst to Melvin is worthless and covered with toxic waste due to the events of the movie.]]

%%* MasterOfDisguise* MasterOfDisguise: Per the film's tagline: "The man who changes his identity more than his underwear," Fletch assumes a lot of false names over the course of the film, most of which have a disguise to go with them.

Probably Chevy Chase's most well-known role after [[NationalLampoonsVacation Clark Griswold]], and something of a cult hit. A 1989 sequel, ''Fletch Lives'', takes Fletch to The DeepSouth where he investigates intrigue around his family estate.

Has nothing to do with the British series ''{{Porridge}}'', the main character of which is also referred to as 'Fletch'.
