Mr. Deeds is a great movie. It's not intelligent or powerful or anything so lofty. But it is a sweet, silly and very fun movie to watch. Adam Sandler is perfect as the kind-hearted small-town boy experiencing big city life for the first time. Winona Ryder is fantastic to look at and fun to watch. She shines. But the character who steals the show is John Turturo as the butler. His bit parts are big scene stealers. I liked this flick so much I saw it at the theater twice. It is a feel-good movie with some real tender parts and is filled with under-keyed hilarious moments. I like Adam Sandler's raunchy humor, but it is very cool to see him play such a great nice guy. And don't worry, some of the humor in this movie is downright "weird" like only Sandler can deliver. I loved this flick!

This was an entertaining movie with a sound cast. The story didn't quite measure up to the original as the remake, but there were some funny shining moments. While this is supposed to be an Adam Sandler film, John Turturro literally steals the movie. He is hilarious as Emilio Lopez the "sneaky sneaky" butler. This movie showcases his well timed comedic talent. Without his contribution, it would have been just an okay remake of a 1920's classic.

Adam Sandler has always been my favorite actor. His movies are all similar, in which he usually plays a character who is either slightly retarded or a big loser. Nonetheless, his characters have all been hilarious. In Mr. Deeds, he strays from his normal character to a nice, small-town guy who owns his own business and is loved by everyone. Sandler proves that he can be just as hilarious when playing a completely normal character. When he is told that he has inherited 40 billion dollars from an uncle he didn't know existed, he acts as though nothing unusual has happened and remains the same guy who everyone loves. He goes to New York City with the managers of his deceased uncle's company and gets the rather stiff servants in his uncle's mansion to loosen up. You can't possibly have a sense of humor if you don't explode with laughter when an extremely old man yells, "BOOB!!!" in a hallway that echoes. John Turturro plays Emilio, a hilarious addition to the movie. His character is an adorably funny servant who befriends Deeds during his stay at the mansion. Besides being funny, the movie has a nice love story within it. Winona Ryder plays Babe Bennett, a reporter, and although she originally manipulates Deeds into thinking she is someone else in order to learn personal information about him, she falls in love with the compassionate small-town guy that he is.
Adam Sandler's movies are usually pure comedy, with the exception of few (such as Big Daddy) but in Mr. Deeds, he delivers just as much humor as we have come to expect from him, as well as a solid, wholesome plot. I give this movie five stars, and two thumbs up to Mr. Sandler.

Adam Sandler movies pretty much shoot for the lowest common denominator. Whether it's jokes about body functions or relationships or people, somehow Adam seems to find some way to make fun of it or to insult someone. In the case of this movie, Adam seems to insult just about everyone, including himself. While the humor is frequently very base, it does occasionally rise to a level to give you a good laugh.
The story is pretty simple. Rich guy dies, leaving "poor" hick relative billions of dollars. The poor defenseless rube moves to the big city and is taken advantage of by all the immoral people there. The hick doesn't really care for money, and returns to his small town values where the buffalo roam and nary a cloud is seen except in blizzards and tornados.
So where's the twist? There aren't any. If you are watching this movie to see some grand new interpretation of "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town", then don't bother. This movie is another Adam Sandler movie, with the only variation being location, but! The biggest "but" is that Sandler generally avoids the most base and gross jokes in this movie. I can't remember once when Sandler used a four-letter word. The humor here is all slapstick, but doesn't (finally!) rely on four-letter words to be funny.
There are scenes in this movie that shouldn't be funny, but are. When Sandler opens the coffin at the funeral and the still-frozen body pops out, I was rolling on the floor. It was stupid, but it was funny. The foot fetish jokes were lost on me. A couple of times I found them funny, but the rest of the time I thought they were tedious.
I admit that I was glad I watched the movie. I might even watch it again. However, the movie comes across as more of a series of adlibbed scenes rather than a well-plotted movie.

Mr.Deeds is about a guy named long fellow Deeds(Adam Sandler).Who works and lives in a small town.But then goes to the big city New York CITY to get 40 billion dollors from an uncle who passes away.And lives in a mansion with a strange butler who sneaks up on you.Deeds falls in love with a school nurse.The school nurse really is a reaporter.She reports about his crazy behaviors as a rich man.

I think it is a great and funny and funny movie.Adam Sandler does a good job for the character long fellow Deeds.

I recommend this movie to people who like a good comedy.Another recommendation is for people who are 13 years or older because it is raded pg-13.People who love Adam Sandler will love the movie Mr.Deeds.
