In an interview, Steve Martin once said of this movie: "This man is not an idiot. He is a contemporary person with some brains . . . he's not naive or a victim of circumstances. He's an intelligent man who happens to get caught in a disaster. That's a big difference between this role and any other part I've played . . . For the first time I'm in a story with a beginning, middle, and end. It's old-fashioned and solid . . . This movie was like going to school. I learned a lot about structure and character". See more »

A transcendental blunder forces a lawyer to share his body with the soul of a crotchety heiress. Carl Reiner's finest work as a director combined the finest performances of stars Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin. Martin is so good in the role that there are moments that we take him seriously as an actor. This is the kind of performance worthy of attention and for fans of Martin's genius, this is one for the books.
