Some movie posters for the film featured a long text preamble that read: "They say that behind every great man there's a woman. But in this case it's ridiculous. When rich, eccentric Edwina Cutwater died, a crazy guru tried to transport her soul into the body of a beautiful young woman. But the guru goofed. And Edwina's soul has accidentally taken over the entire right side of her lawyer, Roger Cobb. He still controls what's left. Now, Edwina and Roger are living together in the same body. He's losing his job. He's losing his girlfriend. And he just can't seem to get her out of his system. No matter how hard he tries". See more »
Roger has a watch on when he arrives at Edwina's wake but loses it when he falls asleep and when Terry wakes him up, he has to ask her what time it is. He gets it back in the next scene, however, when he and Terry get in bed. See more »
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")
