Confess, Fletch’ is a perfect showcase for Jon Hamm’s comedic charm

At a time when every new movie, be it theatrical or streaming, is judged by how much noise it makes the second it’s released,

it’s a relief to stumble upon a movie built out of nothing but low-key charm.

As it turns out, the sneaky comedic mystery “Confess, Fletch” has managed to make noise of its own —

through word-of-mouth and social media buzz — as viewers discover the simple, but ample, 

 joys of an unheralded movie quietly dropped into theaters and on demand just last week.

In theory, “Fletch,” which shares a main character and source material with the cult favorite 1985 Chevy Chase comedy, 

could fit neatly into the reboot and nostalgia craze of today’s Hollywood.

But as directed by Greg Mottola and produced by and starring Jon Hamm, this incarnation of author Gregory Mcdonald‘s roguish, 

 witty detective isn’t interested in connecting dots to the past. He’s just here to make you laugh. And solve a mystery. Preferably in bare feet.
