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

I have managed, since its release, to avoid this junk. Unfortunately, I recently took a chartered bus trip to Chicago and it was one of those buses that have TV monitors every five rows of seats. I'm one of those people who appreciates a comfortable ride in peace, perhaps chatting with a fellow passenger.
So I had this drivel inflicted (and that's not too strong a word) on me. It was unfunny and being forced to at least listen to this rubbish sealed its fate in my book. An amazingly boring film from a production team that ought to know better.
I refused to see this in theaters- and now I can say I wasn't wrong to avoid it.
