IF you are a Steve Martin fan, and it is nothing to be ashamed of, you will love All Of Me (World, 9.35pm). If you aren't, then there is still enough fun in parts to make it worth your while, as long as you can look beyond the vulgarities. It is a curious film, little more in basic form than an attempt (by many of the same people) to go one better on The Man With Two Brains. But Martin's performance is one of his best. Without him heaven knows what might have happened. Lily Tomlin's character is, after all, a one-note creation. Roger Cobb (Martin) is a guitar-playing attorney who is semi-engaged to the daughter of his boss at a large law firm. His most important client is the very rich, very ill Edwina Cutwater (Tomlin), who follows a Far Eastern mystic called Prahka Lasa (Richard Libertini, who starred alongside Robin Williams in Popeye, and looks anything but Asian). He intends to transfer Cutwater's mind into the body of a beautiful young woman (Victoria Tennant) when she finally pegs out. The transfer goes wrong, the mind ends up in Cobb's body, and some jokes ensue. Cobb must now get the old lady out of his system, but how? Victoria Tennant, for collectors of useless information, made All Of Me after spending six years in New York as a housewife. She had been born to a theatrical family - her mother was a prima ballerina - and grew up surrounded by great thesps, among them Sir Laurence Olivier and Sir John Gielgud, Vanessa Redgrave and Vivien Leigh. YOU get more mayhem for your dollar with Dark Angel (Pearl, 9.30pm), which is an aliens-on-the-rampage movie, but better than most of the genre thanks to some moments of wit and a number of unexpected twists in the plot. Dolph Lundgren stars as the Terminator type. Love interest courtesy of Betsy Brantley. Critters 2 - The Main Course (Pearl, 1.30am) is furry-animals-on-the-rampage and even judged by the standards if the original is dull and boring. It makes Gremlins look like War And Peace. IN the Planet Of The Apes canon, number four may well be the best since number one. Number four is Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes (World, 1.25am) and sees Roddy McDowall back in simian character, moving from gentleness to understandable ferocity as he plans a revolt to free his ape brothers from oppression. THE Dalai Lama's most prominent advocate in the West is a movie star, Richard Gere, who pops up to say his piece in Lost Civilizations (Pearl, 12.40am), which is about Tibet. Gere calls Tibet 'a great experiment . . . an effort to create a society that is based on the ideals of Bodistava, a truly altruistic society'. The Chinese Government might beg to differ. In 1949 it began an occupation that is said to have killed more than a million people. MOVIES on Cable Movie Channel: Whispers (7pm). Predictable thriller. Jean LeClerc is the looney who is supposedly killed after he attacks a woman, but later turns up alive (much to the bewilderment of police detective Susan Sarandon). Like Water For Chocolate (11pm). Or Como Agua Para Chocolate, if you prefer Spanish. Striking and sensuous Mexican film which ran and ran in Hong Kong, due no doubt to its themes of sex and food. It is set in the early part of the 20th century, when a young woman's life is shaped by her stern mother and, more importantly, by the overwhelming power of cooking. For collectors of trivia, the title refers to the heroine's temper, which she keeps just below boiling point (as you should with water when heating it to make chocolate). Chocolate plays a big part in Spanish and Mexican culture. It might also help your understanding of the film to hear that traditional Spanish mothers used chocolate as a way of indicating the suitability of a daughter's suitor. If the young man is served a cup of watery stuff, he has been given the thumbs down; strong stuff and he can continue the courtship.
