"Martin offers some of the most impressive physical comedy of his career..." -- Grade: B+
With the help of her guru, an ailing millionairess plans a 'spiritually uplifting' experience that's designed to give her a new life -- inside a beautiful woman's younger body. But the transfer goes awry and her spirit accidentally enters her frustrated male lawyer instead! Now the attorney, who'd much rather be a full-time guitarist, has the wealthy woman's soul and all of her thoughts trapped inside his head... and she turns out to be a very difficult person to ignore.
A dying spinster tries to get a second chance at life by having her soul transported into the body of another woman. Her plan goes awry when her soul takes over the right side of a wacky male lawyer.
Although he was awarded Best Actor by the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Society of Film Critics for this role, Steve Martin did not receive an Academy Award nomination. Martin remarked: "I would have turned handsprings to have gotten nominated for 'All of Me.'"
