The story is a variation of the mistaken identity and impersonation theme made popular by The Prisoner of Zenda and other works. A former mental patient is released from hospital but is mistaken for his doppelgänger, who happens to be a millionaire. A con man tries to keep the mental patient out of trouble, while taking advantage of the situation for his own gain.

The film was released four years after Pryor revealed that he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and his physical deterioration is evident in this film. Peter Bogdanovich was the original director, but he was replaced after five weeks of shooting.
Another You was a critical and box office failure. It ranks among the top ten widely-released films for having the biggest second weekend drop at the box office, dropping 78.1% from $1,537,965 to $334,836.
