About Mr Deeds
Longfellow Deeds (Adam Sandler) is a sweet guy who owns a pizzeria in tiny Mandrake Falls, New Hampshire. Life is good at the small-town restaurant until a slick corporate mogul (Peter Gallagher) brings news that Deeds is about to be rolling in a different kind of dough: A long-lost relative (Harve Presnell) has left him an inheritance of $40 billion, 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 story that has local tabloid reporters, including Babe Bennett (Winona Ryder), salivating. With the help of his trusted valet, Emilio (John Turturro), Deeds ultimately discovers what life is really all about, and proves that money changes everything, but not everyone.
