Irwin M. "Fletch" Fletcher is a newspaper reporter being offered a large sum to off a cancerous millionaire, but is on the run, risking his job and finding clues when it's clear the man is healthy.
In an interview for Red Bull Music Academy, held in Tokyo October 22, 2014, Composer Harold Faltermeyer stated the anthem from Top Gun (1986) was something he originally composed for a dream sequence in the movie, but friend Billy Idol, who was recording close by, stopped in and told him it would be great as the theme for Top Gun (1986), so Harold dropped it from this film.
In case you haven't guessed yet, there's been a lot of drug traffic on the beach. And I'm not talking about Robitussin and No-Doze. I'm talking about the hard stuff, and a lot of it. I've been trying to find out who's behind it. It hasn't been easy....
When Fletch talks to the kid trying to steal the Alfa Romeo, there is a large stain on his cap. Throughout the entire car chase, the stain on his cap disappears.
In the DVD version, at least, Fletch's line "Uh oh - better get Maaco" (when the police car pursuing him flips over) is shortened to simply "Uh oh".
