The mellow soundtrack to the Adam Sandler movie Mr. Deeds bears little resemblance to the raunchy persona the actor exhibits on his music/comedy albums. Instead, the midtempo love-struck rock ballads on the disc reflect Sandler's Wedding Singer-style sensitive side. U2 and Lit contribute senior prom-worthy slow dancers laden with weepy strings, while banjo-happy Travis and a summery Weezer song further the breezy atmosphere. The new cuts fare even better--Dave Matthews Band's heartfelt, subdued anthem and Counting Crows' jangly, R.E.M.-like upbeat rocker are highlights, as is Ben Kweller's piece of doe-eyed, melodic piano pop. The only puzzling part of the album is the inclusion of tracks from David Bowie (complete with an irritating spoken-word intro from Sandler), Pete Townshend, and Yes. Though the sterling quality of such classic music is obvious, their vintage nature is an odd exercise in forced diversity within the sea of modern music. Nevertheless, Mr. Deeds, while a little plain, is ultimately inoffensive and easy on the ears. --Annie Zaleski

First off, to the person who was asking about the music with the harmonica that aired twice in the movie, that was a clip of Tom Petty's "You Don't Know How It Feels" from 1994's "Wildflowers" CD.
The CD is good, but it does leave songs out, such as the above-mentioned song. I love the new music, but perhaps soundtracks will sell better than they do when they aren't used just as a tool to promote new or current artists. That being said, this soundtrack is much better than some recent soundtracks, such as "American Pie 2" which left out two of the most prominently featured songs from the movie (Offspring's "Want You Bad" and Alien Ant Farm's "Smooth Criminal). So, buy this CD if you want to hear the tracks from groups like Lit, Weezer, and Counting Crows, but not if you want to hear songs from older artists that were in the film.

This is a very good soundtrack. All of these songs are excellent. I loved the classic song Space Oddity by David Bowie. The great Pete Townsend song Let My Love Open the Door is featured here. The song I've Seen All Good People by Yes is just one of those great 70's anthem like songs that brings people together.
The new songs on this soundtrack are pretty good too. Where are You Going by Dave Mathews is an elegantly subtle song. Sweetest thing by U2 is a very pretty song that fits the theme of the movie well. Another good song on this CD in my opinion is the light and breezy Island in the Sun by Wheezer. I also enjoyed the lively new song by the Counting Crows.
This is an enhanced CD with interactive games on it. I enjoyed playing the catching the cat game in which you have to rescue cats falling from a building. I also liked playing the typing game on this CD. Your typing speed is tested in this game. The faster you can type out words the more chances you have of hitting an animated foot. This game is very challenging and fun. This CD even includes the trailer to the movie itself. This is the best soundtrack of the year so far.

It's obvious some serious thought was put into the music for the motion picture Mr. Deeds. From new tracks (Dave Matthews' movie theme of Where Are You Going) to classic oldies like Space Oddity by David Bowie (Often called Major Tom) and Let My Love Open The Door by Peter Townshend, this CD seemingly has it all.

I prefer the track by track approach to reviewing an album, so I'll go that way here.

Where Are You Going - Dave Matthews Band
Definitely my favorite song on the track, DMB comes together with another great hit. The drums and change in tone throughout the song reflect the movie so well.

Sing - Travis
Although the intro was a bit disturbing (I thought my CD was damaged), the melody which ensues is intriguing. The banjo adds a great touch to an almost addictive song.

Let My Love Open The Door - Peter Townshend
My family thought I was crazy when I was singing this song throughout the house for at least a week after seeing the movie. Everyone knows why a classic like this is included on a CD.

Wrong Impression - Natalie Imbruglia
I had heard this song before I had listened to the album, and I'd have to say that it is probably one of my least favorite songs on the album, but you should really take that with a grain of salt because of this sheer quality of this album.

Happy in the Meantime - Lit
I wish this song would've had more play time in the movie, besides just as the third song in the credits. Another great song by Lit (who I thought was a one-hit wonder with their song My Own Worst Enemy), and I hope to hear more from them in the future.

I bought this because my girlfriend loves the movie and comments when a song on the radio was in this movie. I didn't really read through the track list, but rather just bought it expecting it would have what she wanted. We listened to it together, and I felt like songs just weren't that great. There were some good ones hear and there, but overall I was disappointed. She enjoyed it, but wasn't going crazy or anything. I think there are some songs missing off here that were in the movie.

I went right out and bought this after seeing the movie (literally) but was dissapointed to find out that most of the music I remember wasn't on it. Sure there's some good songs on here, but the main ones that I liked/wanted aren't on here. This seems to be the trend with movie soundtracks currently, not putting all the music on them....what is playing when "crazy eyes" is on (like his theme or whatever you'd want to call it)...

I was so upset to find out that this CD only plays the soundtrack part on my old CD player. For some reason my laptop, DVD player & car CD player will only bring up the video parts. Extremely frustrating. Was thinking about sending it back. I do love the music though and don't know what the heck to do about it. Has anyone else had this problem??

This truely is one of the best soundtracks to come out in several years. "Where are You Going" by Dave Matthews Band and "Goin' Down to New York Town" by Counting Crows are my two favorites by far. The remixes of "Wrong Impression" and "Sweetest Thing" are also noteworthy, as is Ben Kweller's "Falling." Lit and Trik Turner also lend good songs to the album, as does Weezer. And I love "Let My Love Open the Door."
About the only thing I don't like about this album are the David Bowie and Yes tracks. They just don't do it for me. But Counting Crows and Dave outweigh those two by a large amount.
I mean, this soundtrack is definately not a Forrest Gump soundtrack, but it's not trying to be either. If that's what you're looking for, keep looking and good luck finding one ANYWHERE...but if you're looking for the best soundtrack of today's music, look no further than Mr. Deeds.
