All of Me (1984) – Encore Review

“I can’t believe this. I can’t even die right.” – Edwina Cutwater

Brief Synopsis – A lawyer’s body is accidentally taken over by the soul of an eccentric millionaire.

My Take on it – Hilarious film that shows the comic genius of Steve Martin. He is able to play this character as if he is split into two halves  with a different person controlling each side and he does so in such a convincing way. Martin and Lily Tomlin have amazing chemistry together and this enhances the way that the story plays out so well.  Not many comedians /actors could successfully pull off what he does here and this is truly a testament to his talent. Just watching the scene where he walks down the street is enough proof of this.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Lily Tomlin was born the day World War II started. Steve Martin was born the day World War II ended. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10) (no change from original review)
