Fletch: The Jane Doe Edition–Starring Chevy Chase

Chevy Chase is at the top of his comic form in Fletch: The Jane Doe Edition, a special edition DVD of Universal’s beloved comedy thriller.

Fletch stars Chase as an investigative reporter with a penchant for not-so-clever disguises and a byline that reads “Jane Doe.”  Based on Gregory McDonald’s award-winning bestseller, the script by Andrew Bergman (Blazing Saddles, Honeymoon in Vegas) contains some slapstick moments.

Directed by Michael Ritchie (Cops and Robbersons, Semi-Tough), the film also stars Geena Davis (“Commander in Chief”) and Tim Matheson (Van Wilder).

Fletch: The Jane Doe Edition celebrates the return of everybody’s favorite investigative reporter with a host of new bonus features, including:

Just Charge It to the Underhills: Making and Remembering Fletch: interviews with the cast and crew!

From John Cocktoaston to Harry S. Truman: The Disguises: Chevy Chase’s wild imagination and a few prosthetics created the wackiest characters of all time!

Favorite Fletch Moments: Some of the film’s funniest, most memorable moments.

The comedy thriller is based on Gregory McDonald’s best-seller. Irwin Fletch, a.k.a. Fletch is an investigative reporter who’s constantly changing his identity. While working on a drug expose, Fletch attracts the attention of a strange businessman (Tim Matheson) who wants him to be killed so that his wife  inherit bigger 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!
