Top 5 Fake Names from Fletch

Of the many, many hilarious movies Chevy Chase was involved in, Fletch is perhaps the funniest.  Throughout the film, he adopts various pseudonyms to cover his identity.  Here are some of our favorites.

5: Mr. Poon - His IRS agent pseudonym. "Sugar, Mr. Poon?" Asks the secretary. "No. Never, never."

4: John Coctostan - Immortalized as a name of a burrito at the Moes burrito chain. Also, the name Fletch uses when ordering a steak sandwich and a steak sandwich.

3: Dr. Rosenpenis - One of multiple doctor names used by Fletch in the same scene. This one just slips in...

2: Mr. Babar - Fletch, on how to spell the name:
Doctor: Two "b's"?
Fletch: One. B-A-B-A-R.
Doctor: That's two.
Fletch: Yeah, but not right next to each other. I thought that's what you meant.

1: Frieda's Boss - My favorite exchange in the movie. (Warning--it may not play in writing.)
Woman: I'm sorry; who are you again?
Fletch: Frieda's boss.
Woman: Who's Frieda?
Fletch: My secretary.

Note Fletch's name on the Lakers team ID in the promotional picture for the movie--Magic Christian.  The name never appeared in the film.  Any that we missed?  Want to hit us with the funniest from Fletch Lives?  Share in the comments below, and don't forget to like our Facebook page if you haven't already!


  1. Great movie. Great dialogue. A pretty good (though somewhat less comedic) book series. But a disappointing sequel ("Fletch Lives").

    "What kind of a name is 'Poon,' anyway?"

    "Comanche Indian."

  2. I liked Fletch Lives well enough. I'm not looking forward to any new movies being made.

  3. I always thought it was Rosenfetus.
