All of Me ★★½ 1984 (PG)

A wealthy woman (Tomlin) dies and her guru accidentally transfers her soul to the right side of her lawyer's body, a modern version of existential hell. Lawyer Martin indulges in some funny slapstick as he discovers that his late client is waging an internal war for control of his body. Flat and cliched at times, but redeemed by the inspired clowning of Martin and witty Martin/ Tomlin repartee. Based on the novel “Me Too” by Ed Davis. 93m/C VHS, DVD .
