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 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

In the film, Longfellow Deeds is from a small town called Mandrake Falls, New Hampshire. Though this is a fictional location, Adam Sandler moved to Manchester, New Hampshire at the age of six and lived there all his life until attending college at New York University. See more »

I am normally an Adam Sandler fan, and I like most of his movies, but this fell far short of the comedy I was expecting and as I saw in his other movies. The entire first half of this movie isn't funny at all. The second half has some comedy, but not even close to as much as 20 minutes of Happy Gilmore. This movie could have been way better than it was, and I was disappointed after spending $6 to see this movie, if I had known how bad it was gonna be, I would have paid $6 not to see it.
