Finally caught Fletch last night

    Yeah, I know. Movie's been out since 1985. What was the holdup?

    All I can say is that I'm going to the box for two minutes and going to feel shame that I hadn't seen this movie sooner. It's absolutely hilarious.

    There had been talk--I believe Mizzou had posted these rumors--that if the movie was to be remade, that Zach Braff may have been up for the Chevy Chase role. Now, I'm a huge fan of Braff's but I'm not sure he can pull off the unrepentant cool smartass that Chase did.

    I'll have a Bloody Mary, a steak sandwich ... and a steak sandwich, please.

    Fletch: Do you have any caviar?
    Waiter: Si señor, Beluga, but it is 80 dollars a portion.
    Fletch: Well, then I better just take two portions of that.

    The role Chase was born to play.

    Zach would be biting off more than his precious self can chew, here.

    Not a remake, but Kevin Smith has been trying to get one of the other books, Fletch Won, made for years. Supposedly less slapstick and more like the novels.

    From IMDB:

    Now the project is supposedly starring Joshua Jackson. No idea what its status is -- it supposedly was going to be released this year, but the project has always been on the brink of death.

    Now bring me a glass of hot fat and the head of Alfredo Garcia.

    I think a prequel is in the works.

    Fletch Won I believe it's called. Joshua Jackson of Dawson's Creek fame is set to play Fletch.

    Edit: Beat me to it.

    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in there between Nevada and Wyoming. You've seen pictures.

    That's funny, I must have caught part of the same showing. Hadn't seen it in probably 15 years.

    Can I borrow your towel for a sec? My car just hit a water buffalo.
