How is there not a website that shows every movie and where the fuck it is streaming? That would be great instead of having to go to each individual streamer and check on it.
justwatch.com

and no one is streaming it.

Thereís also a free JustWatch app you can download for your phone. I use it quite a bit when Iím looking for a specific movie.

Looks okay - definitely not worth a theater trip. Glad it's available at home too - seems like a perfect fit there!

Reviews starting to come out: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/confess_fletch

So far, not too many theatres are playing it near me, but I will try to see it if I can. Not interested in paying the $24.99 PVOD price. The Showtime premiere is October 28th.

Why not? It looks great and I’d rather have at home and will watch more than once so it pays for itself by not going to theaters.

I took a peak at my Regal app and they actually gave me a free ticket to see this. If I have time, I might go early next week. The ticket expires in 30 days. Free is free. And the Regal showing it isn’t too far from me.

Up on Vudu now, $20 rental or $27 purchase. Ouch, I'll try a cheap matinee this weekend.

I have a free Audible credit so wanted to grab a Fletch book.

Any recommendations on which one I should start with?

Also posted in the book forum but pretty much dead in there.

Yeh that seems obvious but I thought I’d throw it out there in case one of the other books would be a better start.
The second one introduces Flynn, I think

My suggestions would be either:
Fletch Won - First of the the Fletch books (in chronological order).
Fletch - Basis for the first CC film.
Confess, Fletch - Basis for the JH film.

Iím surprised to say this but I adored this movie. So much fun and so well written, as far as dialogue/gags.

Jon Hamm has never been better. He so effortlessly NAILS this role .

Itís not fall down on the floor funny, but I consistently chuckled and smiled throughout the movie.

Will watch again . Was gonna wait but saw good critics reviews.

4 stars out of 5.

Looks like most of if not all the Fletch books are included in an Audible membership.
Starting with Fletch.

Agree. I loved this. And laughed the entire time. 8.5/10 rating from me.

Re: Confess, Fletch (2022, D: Mottola) S: Jon Hamm

Wanted to go tonight but all of the night shows for every movie was between 6:15pm-6:45pm, and then there's a show for Top Gun: Maverick at 8:30pm. What?! Short movies like Confess Fletch don't have a late show. But you'll be open for at least two hours longer after the 6:30pm show?! Makes zero sense. Is AMC saying, please, please eat dinner here, or what? Nah, I'm out in the 6:00pm hour. Packed weekend, hopefully I can get to see it soon.

Had no idea this was directed by the guy who made Superbad, which is one of the funniest comedies of the past 25 years, IMO.

It was ok. Mostly eh. A few chuckles. But, nothing I have a penchant desire to revisit anytime soon. The original on the other hand is watched very, very much.

Re: Confess, Fletch (2022, D: Mottola) S: Jon Hamm

I used my Regal reward that I mentioned above and saw it for free this afternoon. It was pretty fun overall. Reminded me a little of old school 80s mysteries that we don't get anymore. It was a good vehicle for Hamm and I liked his take on the Fletch character. Sure, it wasn't LOL funny, but it wasn't dumb or boring. And it had some charm to it. I loved how super over the top Marcia Gay Harden was as the Italian countess and her scenes with Hamm. Monroe and Grizz were fun adversaries to Fletch.

Not something I would ever want to own, but it was worth a watch. Probably a good idea that Paramount didn't invest a lot of money marketing this for a full theatrical release. I don't think this would have made money.
