According to the TCMDb, "Reportedly, the actress [Victoria Tennant] was so smitten with [Steve] Martin that on the first day of production she rushed home to tell her male roommate he had three days to move out". See more »
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 »
All of Me is one of the funniest of the Steve Martin movies. He and Lily Tomlin are matched perfectly for the zany antics that occur in the quest for her spirit to be united with the body of Victoria Tennant. Watch for the opening scenes where Martin tries to control his side of his body as Tomlin controls the other side. The resulting attempts to walk will have you rolling in the aisles. The time that Martin and Tomlin share his body are filled with moments including her having to "tap tap" in the men's room and him wanting her to have erotic thoughts while he is about to have sex with Tennant. Of course her thinking of Clark Gable does nothing for him. The music and the sight gags are all great. A perfectly crafted film. You will not be disappointed. This movie is one of my all time favorite funny movies.
