| Tricks of the Trade
Cigarette smoking stock broker Don Todsen (John Ritter) is cheating on his wife Catherine (Cindy Williams). He is having a long-lasting affair with a prostitute named Marla (Markie Post). One night while he is over at her place he is shot and killed. There is no rhyme or reason as to why he was killed. So, the two of the most unlikely of partners in Williams and Post match up to solve the case. Along the way some secrets about Don are revealed.

A good TV movie from the late 80s. Williams and Post work well together and Williams is quite funny and brings some laughs out. More of an adult aimed TV movie due to some of the content. But, it is mostly shown in a comic light.
