Straight cop Benson (Ryan O'Neal, Love Story) and gay officer Kerwin (John Hurt, Alien) make an odd couple when teamed to solve a series of murders in the comedy-thriller Partners directed by James Burrows (TV's Cheers). Thrown together by their boss, Chief Wilkins (Kenneth McMillan, Ragtime), ladies man Benson and the closeted records clerk Kerwin go undercover as a gay couple to hunt down the person responsible for a series of murders in L.A.'s gay community. Initial discomfort melts away as Benson relaxes into his role, while Kerwin finds his bliss in domesticity. But bliss will be short-lived when Benson's roving eye makes him a target for the killer and only Kerwin's clear-eyed deductions may prevent his partner from becoming the next victim.

Partners, directed by James Burrows (TV's Cheers) from a screenplay by Francis Veber (La Cage aux Folles) and featuring a musical score by Georges Delerue (Beaches), co-stars Robyn Douglass (Breaking Away), Darrell Larson (Stepmom), James Remar (Django Unchained) and Jay Robinson (Bram Stoker's Dracula).
