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

Sandler fans beware! This movie tries to develop a plot around 40 billion dollars but fails. It is a string of Sandler jokes, sight gags and skits that we've all seen before in one form or another and they don't even work with the story line.
Unfortunately the string is frequently broken and we are left with stale comedy. Sandler is not believable as the simple small town guy that does not care about the money. If you want to see a good comedy about a regular Joe who inherits a lot of money go rent Brewster's Millions.
