    My last name is Fletcher and I always perk up at movies with a character named Fletcher. It's an unusual enough common name to make for a certain kind of character.

    So, I know about Mutiny on the Bounty, filmed 3 times, all with Fletcher Christian.

    In Zelig, Zelig's psychiatrist is named Fletcher.

    In Minority Report, one of Lamar's assistants is Fletcher.

    There is Jessica Fletcher, of course, of Murder She Wrote.

    There's Chevy Chase as Fletch.

    Help me out here, fill in the blanks.

    "My last name is Fletcher"
    Ditto....hey maybe were related j/k.

    "There's Chevy Chase as Fletch"
    That's the best one if you ask me. I just wish they had done a few more movies of that character. I always use this line after being asked my name...Fletch F. Fletch.

    "I'm sorry. My car just hit a water buffalo. Can I borrow your towel?"

    Everyone says my name sounds like a news reporter. They call me Fletch though.

    Then there's the name Chet. Guess how many films have that name? I can think of 2 off the top of my head. It's my gift, and my curse.

    The Great Outdoors: John Candy's character & Chet from Weird Science aka Bill Paxton I do believe.


    Any others?

    And why is it that every Chet character is always the dork, or even worse the ignorant redneck.

    Better yet did you know this:
    Paul Duggan (Tom the Fletcher)
    . . . Robin Hood and the Sorcerer (1983) (TV)
    Your ancestor could have been the Fletcher that put feathers on arrows for Robin Hood. Wouldn't that be great[​IMG]

    "starring Jason Lee (as Fletch)"

    Sorry...no matter how hard I try I just can't see it. I mean come on, Jason Lee as Fletch??? It just doesn't do it for me. Hopefully I'll eat my words. Kevin Smith has rarely let me down so we'll see.
