Once Edwina's soul has entered Terry Hoskins's body, it makes no sense that she would still have a British accent. Victoria Tennant masks her accent immediately after the event, but lapses back into it when she says, "I love it when you talk like a beer commercial." See more »

One of the Most Delightful Movies of the 80's
30 June 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Yesterday I watched this movie for the 5th or 6th time, now on DVD. Certainly it is one of the most delightful comedies of the 80's. Steve Martin is a lawyer by career and musician by hobby who shares the soul of a selfish millionaire (Lily Tomlin) during an unsuccessful transmigration to the body of the character of Victoria Tennant. The situations are so funny, the magnificent cast is so sharp (specially Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin), that the viewer will certainly love this movie. Please stay watching it until the end of the credits, when you will see Steve Martin falling down while dancing with Lily Tomlin. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Um Espírito Baixou em Mim" ("One Spirit Possessed Me")
