With the help of a talking freeway billboard, a wacky weatherman tries to win the heart of an English newspaper reporter, who is struggling to make sense of the strange world of early 1990s Los Angeles.

"All of Me" does the impossible: it takes two great comic talents (Martin, Tomlin) and not only puts them in the same movie but in the same body!
To watch Martin twist, writhe and convulse as he has to house Tomlin's spirit in his body is hilarious enough but to see one start a sentence and another finish it or verbally spar against each other is a pure delight.
Though Tomlin has little to do, she is more of a verbal comedienne while Martin was always more physical and spastic. Their pairing is genius, as this movie proves time and again.
Funny as it is, you'll get caught up in the story, too. Everyone is treated as an individual and gets to contribute thoughts, personalities and at least one good line and/or scene. Libertini is especially funny as a Hindu mystic ("BIG DOPE!").
Catch "All of Me" as soon as possible. You'll love all of it.
