Longfellow Deeds is a sweet, lovable guy leading a simple but happy life. Life is good at the small town restaurant until two corporate fancy execs bring news that Deeds is about to be rolling in a different kind of dough. A long lost relative has left him an inheritance of 40 billion dollars. It's a fish out of water, rags to riches story that has local tabloid reporters salivating.
Comedy - It more of Sandler's style of comedy, but the storyline doesn't give
him quite as many opportunities to display his unique style of humor
as in his previous films. His fan's will likely be the main audience.
PROFANITY: 1 muffled F-word, 14 S-words. A few others. SEX/NUDITY: A guy in a shower shows his behind, covered in soap suds. VIOLENCE: Some minor hitting and punching for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some drinking and smoking. Nothing too excess. ACTION: None COMEDY: LOTs of humor, including chuckles and laughs.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
These are some very high opinions. It's a movie nearly everyone enjoyed. In fact, these opinions are considerably higher than the opinions we collected for "Big Daddy."
If you're young and you like Adam Sandler's style of humor, you will almost certainly enjoy "Mr. Deeds" very much. If you're an adult, your chances of enjoying this movie are also high, but it's probably not a movie you're likely to rate real high. It's just a fun little comedy.
Cinema Review Opinion: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.
Longfellow Deeds (Adam Sandler) is a sweet, lovable guy leading a simple but
happy life in the tiny hamlet of Mandrake Falls, New Hampshire. Deeds is admired by
the locals who crowd into his pizzeria to hear him recite his offbeat (but hilarious)
greeting card poetry.
Life is good at the small town restaurant until two corporate fancy execs
bring news that Deeds is about to be rolling in a different kind of dough. A long lost
relative has left him an inheritance of 40 billion dollars along with the largest media company
in the world, a football team, a basketball team, and a private helicopter ready to
whisk him off to corporate America.
It's a fish out of water, rags to riches story that has local tabloid
reporters, including Babe Bennett (Winona Ryder), salivating. With the help of his trusty valet,
Emilio (John Turturro), Deeds ultimately discovers what life is really all about and has
to prove that money changes everything… but not everyone.
