Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jack Coleman plays a down-on-his-luck baseball player who becomes a Beverly Hills masseur. One of his male clients hires Coleman to make love to the man's wife (Michelle Phillips) to provide grounds for a divorce. Needless to say, the client ends up dead, and Coleman is the prime suspect. American Gigolo, anyone? Made for cable, Rubdown does little to enhance the careers of supporting players Alan Thicke, William Devane or Catherine Oxenberg.
