I think Miramax was dragging too long on letting him do it with Jason Lee in the lead.

The thing I dislike most about the Fletch movies is the way the love interest snickers at his jokes. It breaks a wall, somehow, and makes the jokes seem really self-congratulatory. Like, she's supposed to be the foil, but instead she's the sounding board. Kinda ugly.

yeah but sometimes in comedies it's weird when the lead character is making wisecracks and the person he's with clearly doesn't know how to react

wouldn't his wisecracks land better if the people around him kept pretending he's not so wise?
