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

When Babe, pretending to be a school nurse, talks to Longfellow on the phone, she says that a boy named Billy Barty is in her office, sick. This is a tribute to actor Billy Barty, who died in 2000, three months before production started. See more »
While Pam/Babe is making her speech at the end, her hair parts from one side to the other and back between shots, and her mic switches hands. The middle shot was apparently flipped to maintain direction of movement during the sequence. See more »

Not the best Adam Sandler movie by a long shot. A few funny scenes and a dumb love story plotline that will put you to sleep. Happy Gilmore was much better. Avoid this movie at all possible. Don't waste your time.
