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

Martin vaults to the top of the class with his brazen, precise performance. This one goes in the time capsule.
Patently ridiculous, but acceptable because of the charm of the characters.
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.
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.
Mr. Martin's astonishing performance is the film's most conspicuous asset, but the entire cast is good.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Steve Martin delivers a marvelous, physically challenging performance in this often hilarious comedy.
"All of me" is very funny, but not too outlandish, risque (at times) but not disgusting. A quality comedy with a heart.
Beatiful comedy. Martin acts half-man/half-woman perfectly. Biting cross-gender comedy here.
One of Steve Martin's best performances.
A wonderful showcase for Steve Martin's physical talents, and Lily Tomlin is a scream.
A decent diversion, but a largely forgettable film. Martin and Tomlin try hard, but don't get as many laughs as they should.
Steve Martin's brilliant physical comedy is only the highlight of this satisfying little giggle-fest.
