Sitcom stars excel in saucy comic-mystery
28 February 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Cindy Williams is very cute playing a sheltered Southern California society wife whose shady stockbroker husband (John Ritter) is killed in the apartment of a Hollywood hooker (Markie Post); the two women eventually form an uneasy alliance and team up to catch the murderers. Not-bad TV-movie with some flash and sass. Williams and Post share an amusingly bristly, appealing rapport and the supporting players are well-chosen. The mystery angle is all over the place, with too many aimless stops at Williams' plush digs in Brentwood--but even though the details aren't smoothed out, the movie is still rather satisfying and has several funny sequences.
