Storyline

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 Sujit R. Varma

Trivia

The main helicopter used in the film is a Sikorsky S-92. At the time of production, the S-92 was not an FAA certified aircraft (still under development) and without much of an interior. No cast or film crew were allowed aboard the helicopter during operation, and all interior shots had to be faked. See more »

Goofs

When Chuck and Cecil exit the helicopter in Mandrake Falls, the rotors are still spinning, but they are completely still in the next shot. See more »

See Ryder kiss Sandler!
23 October 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Mr. Deeds" tells of a wacky, naive small town guy, Mr. Deeds (Sandler), with little respect for fame or fortune who inherits $40 billion and has to deal with the responsibilities and media attention which accompanies his inheritance. Ryder plays a tv producer after the inheritance story who happens to fall in love with the Sandler character, something which pushes this flick from romantic-comedy into the realm of fantasy or sci-fi. In spite of its hard-to-swallow romantic side plot, the film offers nonstop in-your-face silliness and nonsense which should make it a fun watch for fans into Sandler's brand of deadpan kookie comedy. Non-Sandler fans can expect a lukewarm result. (C+)
