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

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 »
The movie takes place over a "few days" while Chuck gets the paperwork signed to get Deeds his money. When Chuck and Cecil pick Deeds up from his hometown to take him to New York, the helicopter lands on bright green turf and folks in town are wearing summer clothes. By the time Deeds leaves New York a short time later, it's winter. Ponds are iced over and the snow is thick on the ground, as if it has been winter for some time. See more »

I am quite a big fan of Adam Sandler and was let down by his lack of Everything (besides good actors) in this movie. Mr. Deeds was no where near as entertaining and humorous as his past films. I am very disappointed in Mr. Deeds, Adam Sandler, and his director.
