Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Chevy Chase classic came out just one year after the PG-13 rating was instituted, so although it's rated PG, today it would probably merit a PG-13 for its language ("bitch," "s--t," and many words starting with "ass"), sexual innuendo, and mild violence. As an investigative reporter, Fletch is a "master of disguise" who impersonates various people to gain information. The situations he gets himself into are funny and, for the most part, harmless.

Sexual Content

Fletch comes onto, propositions, and kisses a married woman. He makes remarks that make it clear he has slept with her. He says "nice piece of ass" and "pimp" and makes slightly lewd remark about his large "endowment."

Violence

Fletch knees a guy in the groin. Someone hires Fletch to kill him. A character tries to kill his wife and Fletch.

Language

PG-13-level cursing: "bitch," "assface," "ass," "assh--e," "asswipe," "s--t," "crap," "hell," "Jesus H. Christ"

Social Behavior

As an investigative reporter, Fletch does some sneaky things, mostly impersonating others, to get information. On the other hand, he has the public's best interest (and his career) in mind.

Consumerism

Los Angeles Lakers and their merchandise are featured fairly prominently; also Coors beer and Miracle Whip in one scene.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink champagne, beer, and wine in a few scenes; Drugs are discussed and a drug dealer/supplier exposed.
