Storyline

Having just turned thirty-eight, Angeleno Roger Cobb is at a crossroads in his life. From a humble background, he is competent at his job as a lawyer at Burton Schuyler's prestigious firm, but is unsatisfied working on behalf of rich people and the problems of the one percent. Although he would rather eke out a life as a musician if he could, he would be more satisfied as a lawyer if he made partner and got better cases. While Roger always bringing his dog Bix to the office does not instill much confidence for Burton in Roger as partner material, Roger seriously dating Burton's daughter, Peggy Schuyler, may give him a path to partner, especially if he and Peggy get married. In the latest of those unsatisfying work tasks, he is asked by extremely wealthy client, single Edwina Cutwater, to make a change to her will. Edwina, a selfish middle aged woman who has never done a nice thing in her life, has always been sickly, and as such has not really enjoyed what life she has had despite her... Written by Huggo

User Reviews

 
Steve gets physical....
9 October 1999 | by Mister-6See all my reviews

"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.

Ten stars.
