On her deathbed, mean-spirited millionairess Lily Tomlin has her will amended so that her soul will pass into the body of young, healthy Victoria Tennant. Thanks to a mix-up in transmutation, Tomlin winds up instead trapped in the body of upright (and uptight) attorney Steve Martin. The plot involves the fragility of male-female relationships, the importance of making commitments, and the antics of goofy guru Richard Libertini. As ridiculous as it sounds, All of Me is completely credible, thanks to Steve Martin's remarkable "body language" when conveying the notion that he's… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Martin vaults to the top of the class with his brazen, precise performance. This one goes in the time capsule."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"It scores a lot of points by speculating on the ways in which a man and a woman could learn to coexist in such close quarters. Against all the odds, a certain tenderness and sweetness develops by the end of the film."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"His manic thrashing actually hides a very measured and deliberate performance. We can see the twin halves of his body struggling to work in sync, turning a simple walk to the bathroom into a piece of comedic gold."
‑ Rob Vaux,
"A lewd, loveable comedy for teens and up."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"Steve Martin delivers a marvelous, physically challenging performance in this often hilarious comedy."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Patently ridiculous, but acceptable because of the charm of the characters."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Mr. Martin's astonishing performance is the film's most conspicuous asset, but the entire cast is good."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Timeless, indelible and irrefutable proof that Steve Martin is not just among the funniest men alive. He's one of the most thoughtfully funny men alive. Plus, Carl Reiner's devilishly deft touch makes this feel appropriately like 1984 by way of 1944."
‑ Nick Rogers,
" could not hope for more humor than from this unassuming title."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin showcase their comic zest."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Martin is his usual combination of flat cynicism and crazed childishness, indulging in some inspired Jerry Lewis-like clowning with his arms and legs hopelessly out of synch."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Martin has become a superb physical comic, and Tomlin brings some unexpected warmth to a cruelly written part. A manic fuzziness takes over in the last reel and spoils some of the pleasure, but it's still a sympathetic effort."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Carl Reiner's likeable and funny comedy about mind and body switching features a great performance from Steve Martin in one of his best roles."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Martin does some of his best acting in this film and steals the movie from Tomlin, whose character is, at best, a one-note creation."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
""All of me" is very funny, but not too outlandish, risque (at times) but not disgusting. A quality comedy with a heart."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
