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.

I would watch this once. If I had to entertain kids of a variety of ages, I'd watch it a 2nd possibly 3rd time. Then I'd need 5+ years to forget it. It's a good family movie. A few good laugh moments. No rip-roarious laugh moments, but good chuckles.
Side note: now that I lived in NYC for 4+ years . . . it's amazing just how much I see the BS of the "Inside Access" show seemingly at play in the reporting in NYC. Is everyone totally full of sh*t here? What is wrong with this city?!?
This movie is somewhat of a remake, but Sandler makes it his own playing a sheltered/naive small town guy who unexpectedly inherits $40 billion when his long lost media mogul great uncle passes away. As Deeds (Sandler) moves to NYC to set affairs in order, everyone in the press is out to get his story. Ms. Bennett, played by Winona Ryder, is a tabloid journalist who goes undercover as a lady in distress, Pam Dawson, to capture Deeds' attention and get her story.
As Dawson and Deeds fall in love, the men running Blake Media (the company Deeds inherited) conspire to tear the company down to sell for profit. Since Deeds has fallen in love with New York, the only way the conspirators can get him out of the picture is to break his heart by exposing Ms. Bennett's scam.
Despite the fact that this movie has a good story line, they still managed to fill it with some zany wacky silly comedy and lines I still repeat today. It's a good one.
