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 accidentially 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 »
Hmm, we seem to have mutual control over our body.
OUR body? This is my body! I'm not sharing my body with anyone!
Everybody's gonna be real disappointed.

This is what Steve Martin is all about - genius comedy. Lily Tomlin is up to the task as his supporting lead love interest. Both put on a great show with a very strong supporting cast.
The basic idea is that Steve Martin's character is a lawyer wanna be musician. He meets a cold distant viscous woman played by Lily Tomlin through rather strange circumstances... let's just say they get close - VERY CLOSE! :) As they hang out together her coldness is shed to bring out a more human side that makes Tomlin's character endearing to him. The entire movie is about Tomlin's character, but Martin shines as the lead role. His genius is evident throughout this movie. (I listened to Willie Nelson's rendition of "All of Me" about 15 times after seeing the movie.) One classic that will endure forever in my opinion. 9/10
