Supporting roles followed including an effective performance as wife of astronaut Gordon Cooper (Dennis Quaid) in Philip Kaufman's "The Right Stuff" (1983).

Reed continued to work in films appearing as Robin Williams' ex-wife in "Cadillac Man" (1990) but her comedic skills came to the fore and to the attention of a wider public when she co-starred as Arnold Schwarzenegger's partner in Ivan Reitman's "Kindergarten Cop" (1990). Reed was also seen in Tim Robbins' satiric take on American politics "Bob Roberts" (1992) and again co-starred with Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in Ivan Reitman's medical comedy "Junior" (1994) as DeVito's pregnant ex-wife.

Reed has been equally active on the small screen since making her debut on the short-lived dramatic series "The Andros Targets" (1977). She has since starred in a variety of TV projects including the remake of "I Want to Live" (1983), about the execution of gangster moll Barbara Graham; "Scandal Sheet" (1985), starring opposite Burt Lancaster; the dedicated campaign manager in "Tanner '88" (1988), a realistic yet satiric look at an imaginary candidate running for president in the 1988 campaign; and in "Woman With a Past" (1992), she played a suburban housewife with a hidden criminal identity. Reed has tried her hand at weekly series TV with both "Grand" (1990) as a former beauty queen turned waitress, and "Family Album" (1993) about a family struggling with generational differences. Neither series survived more than a few episodes. She returned to series TV in 1995, portraying a judge and single mother in the NBC sitcom "Home Court."
