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 and Deeds are talking in a bar after a fake criminal act set by her, Deeds talks about how Stephen King visited his town, and how one guy lost two hundred pounds after making eye contact with him, a reference to Thinner (1996). See more »
The cat that Babe is holding (the one Deeds saved from the burning building) disappears and reappears between shots. See more »

This movie is about a guy named LongFellow Deeds(Adam Sandler) who inherits 40 billion dollars from his late uncle. He goes to New York to collect the money and a news reporter(Winona Ryder) want's his story(in order to keep her job). From this point it gets very silly. Adam Sandler wasn't as funny as he usually is. The story (actually a remake) is very boring and most of the jokes are old. The only actor who made me laugh was John Turturro. He plays a spanish butler with a twisted passion for feet. If you liked him in "The Big Lebowski"(as Jesus Quintana) then maybe this is a movie for you. I give this movie a 3/10.
