Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

All Of Me

BBBB.5

(out of 5)


Among the very best performances  has ever given. During a ritualistic ceremony in which an Indian guru (the painfully unfunny racial stereotype being the film’s only flaw) tries to take the soul of a dying rich heiress () and place it into a young, healthy woman (, Martin’s real-life wife), he accidentally spills the bowl her soul is in and it falls into half the body of a lawyer (Martin) who happens to be passing by. Now, Tomlin has control over part of Martin’s physical self while the rest is for him to guide, making for one of the most impressive physical performances ever put on film. What Martin is unaware of is that Tennant is still scheming to get the rich woman into her in order to take her funds, while he gets to know Tomlin and finds himself liking her quite a bit. Incredibly funny, and one of Carl Reiner’s best films as director.
