When his recently deceased aunt bequeaths her decrepit manor to him, Fletch travels down south to rural Louisiana. Initially, things go pretty well, and he hooks up with a flirtatious southern belle who spends the night with him. But when he wakes up the next morning, he finds the woman murdered. In order to catch the killers, and clear himself, the intrepid, chameleon-like Fletch must infiltrate the congregation of a greedy local preacher who, he discovers, wants to gain control of his land in order to build a Bible-themed amusement park.
Trouble follows Fletch, the master of disguise reporter, to Louisiana, where he's inherited a very rundown plantation that someone else is willing to kill to possess. The microscopic termite scene is a classic. Based on the Jeffrey MacDonald character.
Color by Deluxe. Sequel to "Fletch" (1985). Both films share the same producers, director, star, editor and composer.
