Watch Steve Martin Match Wits With the Alien Symbiote in ‘All of Venom’ (Video)

TheWrap reader brings a joke from our review of “Venom” to life

In his review of “Venom,” TheWrap film critic Alonso Duralde said about the “Spider-Man” sorta-spinoff that it’s what you’d get if “you replaced Tom Hardy for Steve Martin in ‘All of Me,’ and switched out Lily Tomlin for a wad of chewed-up black licorice.”

To be honest, that sounds to us like a great idea. And as it happens, we’re not alone. Video artist Nelson Carvajal agrees, and to prove it, he created a video mashup bringing the idea to life. Watch it above right now.

If you haven’t seen the 1984 film directed by Carl Reiner, “All of Me” follows estate lawyer Roger Cobb (Martin), who ends up with the soul of heiress Edwina Cutwater (Tomlin) trapped in his body. Each of them have control over half of his body, leading to some wacky hijinks as they try to figure out how to get Edwina’s soul a body of her own. And, as you can see from the video above, it goes together extremely well with “Venom,” especially thanks to Steve Martin’s slapstick skills.

“Venom,” which just enjoyed a record-breaking opening weekend, is in theaters right now. “All of Me” is available on most streaming platforms, and you should watch it as soon as you can.
