action & adventure, comedy


Just the facts: Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd star as unlikely partners in this hysterically funny action-comedy that pays homage to the famed original police drama of the '50s and '60s.

Silly and dated but loved as a child

Funny movie version of the classic show. Great dry humor here throughout the whole film like a more deadpan/detective-like Fletch.

THANK GOD ITS FRIDAY! Classic 80's comedy with Hanks in his silly prime and Aykroyd when he was in everything haha. There are some genius moments of comedy gold in this film that just elevate it, its much like the 'Starsky n Hutch' or 'The Dukes of Hazzard' remakes in which they sent up the original somewhat but keep it close to its original format in terms of concepts. Its really underrated and overlooked frankly, the pairing of Hanks n Aykroyd is fantastic, Aykroyd being so so funny as a stuck up jobsworth and Hanks is perfect in a slick laidback role much like his other 80's characters. Its all very cheesy but there's some good action in here, nice soundtrack and excellent cast, wish they made em like this still hehe.
