Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn are back together in this delightful comedy about a down-on-his-luck writer who becomes a fugitive after being forced to rob a bank. He seeks help from the only person he can trust – ex-wife Glenda (Hawn) – who allows him to stay at her house. The only trouble is her district attorney husband who would love to get his hands on the fugitive. The film is one of Chase’s best thanks to some great performances (Chase is ably supported by Goldie Hawn and Charles Grodin as Hanw’s husband) and Neil Simon’s witty script.

3. Caddyshack (Ramis, 1980)

caddyshack, great comedy,

More of an ensemble film than a Chevy Chase vehicle, Caddyshack remains a favourite amongst fans thanks to its risqué humour and brilliant cast of characters including Bill Murray as a nice-but-dim greenskeeper and Rodney Dangerfield, a rich, loud-mouthed gold enthusiast. Chevy Chase is a member of the upscale Bushwood Country Club where he plays gold of a regular basis. He spend much of his time teaching caddie Danny Noonan about life while showing off his array of trick shots.

2. Fletch (Ritchie, 1985)

Fletch, Chevy Chase, Film, Comedy, 1980s,

Now firmly a favourite amongst Chevy Chase fans, Fletch was a success for the actor at the box office and within the eyes of critics. Since it was released it has gone from strength to strength, gaining a strong following and inspiring sequel Fletch Lives. Based on the popular novels by Gregory McDonald, Fletch tells the story of quick-witted, smooth-talking newspaper reporter Irwin M. Fletcher (Chase). While investigating the drug trade for his latest story, he disguises himself as a homeless junkie who wanders the beach in search of his next hit. One day he is approached by Alan Stanwyk who asks Fletch to murder him. Apparently, Stanwyk has an inoperable disease and wants his family to receive his life insurance. Fletch agrees after being offer a large amount of money but is suspicious of Stanwyk’s motives. Stanwyk has no clue Fletch is an undercover reporter, believing him to be a street bum of no consequence. When Fletch digs deeper he finds that Stanwyk does indeed have a few skeletons in the closet and the whole murder plot maybe a set-up.

Fletch is Chase’s favourite movie. It is easy to see why – he obviously has a lot of fun with the character. Fletch uses many disguises allowing Chase to take on various personas, highlighting his talent at depicting character-based comedy. Director Michael Ritchie also allowed the actor to ad-lib throughout the film, giving Chase another dimension to explore the character with.

1. National Lampoon’s Vacation (Ramis, 1982)

national lampoon's vacation, best chevy chase film,

Chevy Chase’s most memorable character has to be Clark W. Griswold. He is the disaster-prone father and husband of the Griswolds, a family who set out on a journey from Chicago to Los Angeles to spend a day at theme park Walley World. Along the way things don’t go to plan. However, that doesn’t stop Clark making sure his family have the time of their lives. And, when they eventually get to the theme park and find it’s closed for maintenance, Clark decides he is not going to take no for an answer. So he kidnaps the security guard (John Candy) and forces him to take the family on all the rides. Chevy Chase is great as Clark in Harold Ramis’ funny and endearing road trip comedy.
