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

When filming the scene where Deeds beats up Marty, Allen Covert got spun around by Adam Sandler, slipped on the sidewalk and his skull hit the concrete with no protection and was unconscious for a minute. See more »

On the outside MR. DEEDS looks like another predictable remake, with absolutely nothing new to offer. On the inside, you guessed right. It has next to no substance, no creativity, almost to the point where you can predict the entire fate of the movie a quarter of the way in. My best friend and I did so and were not surprised. But we did enjoy the movie. The characters are all a delight, in a childish way. And it did have its moments.
Multi-millionaire tycoon dies, leaves his grand-nephew the fortune.
Adam Sandler repeats many things that he did in other movies, with different characters, situations, etc. But for a remake, this is a fairly good one and a better outing for the star compared to LITTLE NICKY. The new version of SPACE ODDITY was cute, if not from left field. A good renter though it may not appeal to everyone.
