Review

Our Score
A promising idea and a dynamic performance from Steve Martin aren't enough to distract from this film's paucity of genuinely funny moments and a lazy overreliance on half-baked resolutions. As the lawyer whose body is taken over by the soul of deceased millionairess Lily Tomlin, Martin has never been so effective, combining his trademark exasperation with some amazingly energetic slapstick. Tomlin makes the most of appearing almost exclusively in reflection and Richard Libertini is hilarious as a quack swami. But Victoria Tennant hams shamelessly, while director Carl Reiner (a regular Martin collaborator) cracks almost every gag with a mallet. Pity.

Summary

A struggling lawyer is made executor of the will of a headstrong, terminally ill millionairess who plans to have her soul transferred into another woman's body when she dies. The attorney takes an instant dislike to his spoiled client - only to end up sharing his body with her when the process goes wrong. Comedy, starring Steve Martin, Lily Tomlin and Victoria Tennant.
