"All of Me" is a 1984 fantasy/comedy film directed by Carl Reiner and starring Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin.

Plot

Martin plays an attorney named Roger Cobb. He is dating his boss' daughter and is also an aspiring jazz rhythm guitarist. Lily Tomlin is a difficult, eccentric, spoiled rotten, but oxygen-dependent millionairess named Edwina Cutwater. Discovering that she is dying, Cutwater wants to make some unusual final arrangements.

Roger is sent in to arrange her will, in which she wants to leave her vast fortune to Terry Hoskins (Victoria Tennant), her stable-keepers' daughter, with the idea that a culture-shocked holy man can use a mystical bowl to allow Miss Hoskin's soul to leave, and Edwina's soul to enter her body, giving her the chance of a life in a less crippled body. Roger, unsurprisingly, believes the whole plan is "bananas".

However, the best-laid plans go awry and in fact Roger himself ends up with Edwina's soul having control over the right side of his body and him the left, causing constant friction and problems between the two— amongst them, the loss of Roger's girlfriend and job. While their relationship does warm during the course of the film, things are further complicated by the revelation that Terry is a scheming opportunist who is planning to take advantage of Edwina's last will and testament and have her former employer's fortune for herself.

The movie ends with Terry's plot being foiled by Roger and Edwina. Rather than face life in jail, Terry at last consents to having her soul placed into the body of her stablehand father's horse. Edwina takes up residence in Terry's body as originally planned, so that she and Roger can live a happy, carefree life with her fortune. The final shot has Roger and Terry dancing, but in the mirror the audience sees that it is really Roger and Edwina dancing.
