Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.
When Longfellow Deeds, a small-town pizzeria owner and poet, inherits $40 billion from his deceased uncle, he quickly begins rolling in a different kind of dough. Moving to the big city, Deeds finds himself besieged by opportunists all gunning for their piece of the pie. Babe, a television tabloid reporter, poses as an innocent small-town girl to do an exposé on Deeds. Of course, Deeds' sincere naiveté has Babe falling in love with him instead. Ultimately, Deeds comes to find that money truly has the power to change things, but it doesn't necessarily need to change him. Written by

When filming the scene where Deeds beats up Marty, Allen Covert got spun around by Adam Sandler, slipped on the sidewalk and his skull hit the concrete with no protection; he was unconscious for a minute. See more »

Adam Sandler has 2 characters- Retarted Sensitive Guy and Sensitive Guy with Anger Problems. Little Nicky got Retarted Guy played out, and now the sensitive guy with anger problems is sucking. A number of corny jokes and predictable and just plain stupid scenes and things bogged down the movie, but I'm a big Adam Sanlder fan, and still didn't HATE this movie. There were a few jokes I liked ("you have underestimated the sneakiness") and scenes I liked (the "Space Oddity" scene that I dont think kids will get) in it, and Steve Bushemi was cool as usual ("Time heals everything...except for these crazy eyes"). This is for Sandler fans to enjoy. C, 6/10
