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

AWFUL!!
7 July 2002 | by Jennifer-105See all my reviews

I really enjoy Adam Sandler,dont get me wrong, but this has to be his worst movie to date and one of the worst movies i have ever seen. When you go to see an Adam Sandler movie you expect a lot of laughs,however this movie was very,VERY unfunny. In the 40 min. my friend and i watched there was NOTHING funny in the movie at all and nobody laughed. It was so boring my friend started to fall asleep,that was our cue to go. This movie is hideous,save your money.
