Directed by: Michael Ritchie

WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT?
An investage reporter from LA quits his job when he learns that his aunt left him a plantation in Louisiana in her will. Hovewer, as soon as he gets there, he realizes that it's not what he's expected... and that local swamps hide more secrets and crime too.


WORTH WATCHING?

I'm not sure. Honestly, being a fan of the first movie in the Fletch series, I didn't like the strange mix of crime and humor that is shown in this installment.

The original Fletch didn't even try to hide that it was a bit of a self-parody at time. But here I'd say they've managed to jump a shark.

The way our hero keeps his jokes a minute after an innocent woman is brutally murdered is NOT funny at all, and it ruins the rest of the movie, because of such actions.
Well, there is of course ple…

Fletch (1985)



Starring: Chevy Chase, Tim Matheson, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Richard Libertini, Geena Davis, George Wendt

Directed by: Michael Ritchie

Script by: Andrew Bergman

WHAT IS ABOUT?

A newspaper reporter goes undercover to write an article about drug trafficking in Los Angeles, when a total stranger offers him money to... kill him. No wonder that this quickly becomes an even more interesting story... and a more deadly too.


WORTH WATCHING?

Definitely!

It's a classic You don't wonna miss!

It's a bit complicated though, as for a comedy, as there is a lot of investigation, and a bit of thriller in it as well.
Still, Chevy does a great job, and even when his life is put at risk, he can't stop make viewers laugh.

It may seem a bit unrealistic because of it, he's not that much of an investigate reporter, as he's never serious in what he's doing.

Still, it's something I bought and enjoyed. And it will enterain You as well, for sure.


There's a pretty nice cast, to…

Directed by: Penny Marshall

Script by: Gary Ross, Anne Spielberg

WHAT IS ABOUT?
As a small boy's wish becomes reality, he must go to the city and live an adult's life, until he will find a way to regain his real body and age.


WORTH WATCHING?

Absolutely!

This is a classic and still a good entertaining funny movie to watch.

There's not much to add, You must see it by Yourself.

I'm not sure if Tom Hanks' role deserved an Oscar Animation though. He's good as always, but can't call it anything genious. It was a well written role, and well executed of course. Although, it's always amazes me in this kind of movies that grown-up kids act much more childish, than as they were still boys.

It's kind of common actually, and "Big" goes with the same approach.


I'm not sure if I could call it "realistic" as well.
It would be probably panned by th…
