Small-town guy Longfellow Deeds (Sandler) goes to the big city to collect a $40 billion inheritance from a long lost uncle. Living in a palatial mansion with the services of an unusual personal valet (John Turturro) isn't too bad. Things get even better when he meets a beautiful school nurse (Winona Ryder). But money changes everything, and things aren't what they seem - his sweetie is actually a journalist feeding reports of his outrageous behavior to the press! Now, it's up to Deeds to straighten everybody out - with a few right hooks and lots of common sense.

Critics Consensus: This update of Capra doesn't hold a candle to the original, and even on its own merits, Mr. Deeds is still indifferently acted and stale.

The star and his numbskull cronies piss on Capra's grave with acrid insincerity.

Pretty awful, but teen Sandler fans may like it.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Mr. Deeds is a 2002 Adam Sandler movie with the expected over-the-top physical comedy -- as well as some profanity, sexual references, drinking, and product placement. In one scene, a man is in a shower excessively soaping his buttocks so his rear end is covered in soap suds. While essentially a good-hearted character, Deeds tends to solve his conflicts by getting into fist fights with those he disagrees with. Overall, this is another very silly Adam Sandler movie, rooted in obnoxious humor best for teens and older.
