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

* AdaptationalVillainy: Alan Stanwyk. In the novel he had nothing to do with the drug-dealing on the beach or the crooked police department. He did plan to kill Fletch as a way of faking his death, but Fletch correctly notes when he confronts him at the end that he's a good person who feels guilty about his bigamy, and he won't be able to pull the trigger.



* JerkAss: Ted Underhill, a snobby rich jerk who doesn't tip the waiter. It's this that makes Fletch [[LaserGuidedKarma use his credit card as his own personal expense account.]]

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Inverted. In the novels, Fletch was a handsome, young, blond, extremely muscular man who could bed any woman he wanted. In the movies, he was played by a forty-something Chevy Chase who, while not exactly unhandsome, doesn't meet the other criteria that closely.

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