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

The hidden camera on Pam's sweater keeps disappearing/reappearing throughout the scene before the cat rescue. Also, while trying to capture the rescue on film, Pam indicates that it is in the flower, when in fact it was shown in the middle of her collar in earlier shots. See more »

Pretty Funny, but Ultimately Average
13 October 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Longfellow Deeds (Adam Sandler) is a small town guy who is taken to the big city when he learns he has an inheritance of $40 billion from a long lost uncle. He has to adjust to life in a Palatial Mansion with a personal butler, and he meets a beautiful school nurse (Winona Ryder); but its not long before the money begins to change everything, and he learns things are not what they seem.

This remake is not without plenty of laughs, but it never quite manages to do anything thats truly hilarious or new. For a bit of fun its worth a watch, but it's one of those films that you will forget about pretty quickly.

6/10 its just average i'm afraid
