When Fletch is escaping from the shotgun wielding man in what is supposed to be Provo, Utah, right after his rear window is shot out, you can clearly see Palm trees in the background. Provo, Utah does not have Palm trees indicating the scene was shot somewhere else. Most likely southern California.
