He wasn't a Nazi, or a German. He was in a Ukrainian group that was SS lead.

I know that might seem pedantic but Ukrainians never needed to be German or Nazis to rustle up a good pogrom or two.

American Stalinists, on the other hand, have a way of turning their lives around and becoming valuable supporters of those who matter in America.

Hmmm.... I bet more than a few Iraqis could make a war crimes case against your friends and neighbors.

SirEattonHogg: Fletch is dated because they decided to use too much 80's music synthesizer stuff. I'm thinking that film must have come on the heels of Beverly Hills Cop. Otherwise, its still pretty entertaining.

re the 80s fascination iwth "cop comedies" (flethc, 48 hours, beverly hills, the police academy franchise, that billy crystal / gregory hines movie, arguably bill murray's "Quick Change"), "Midnight Run" is way funnier.  you'd think Chevy Chase would make a funnier movie than Grodin and DeNiro, but Fletch is basically a one-watch movie.  Midnight Run is still farking hilarious, despite not being a comedy per se.

Quick Change also has aged very well.  granted it is a bit later than the caddyshacks and blues brothers, but is still kinda in that genre.  but the larger point is, Fletch is wildly overrated.

djslowdive: Oh come on, we're on a mission from God.

some quotable lines, some cool scenes, but as a document, it just doesn't really hold up.  animal house is still fantastic, caddyshack, the jerk, 48 hours, some others i'm spacing on (trading places!), coming to america (a bit later but still in the "early 80s comedy" genre) hold up but Blues Brothers doesnt'.

neither does Fletch.  go watch it.  count the laughs.  at least, if you don't fall asleep.
