Steve Martin Month: All of Me 1984 7 out of 10

Steve Martin demonstrates his mastery of physical comedy as half is body is taken over by Lily Tomlin in All of Me.   The movie has Steve's character trying  to help solve some of her unresolved problems while trying to get her soul out of his body and "Back in the bowl".  Some of the scenes where he is trying to adapt to having her is his body are comedy gold.  Steve's performance is fantastic and silly.   His character reflects his early stand-up material like in The Jerk and The Lonely Guy.

"You're like an energy vampire. You suck the life out of people and take the fun out of being a lawyer. "
