Small town kid, big time right hook.
In this goofy remake of Frank Capra's 1936 Mr Deeds Goes To Town, Adam Sandler is Longfellow Deeds, a loveable smalltown eccentric who inherits $40 billion and the controlling stake in a multimedia empire owned by an unknown uncle. Howevever, the slick M.D. of his uncle's businesses (Peter Gallagher), has plans to dispose of the empire to make a quick megabuck. Meanwhile, no-nonsense female reporter Babe Bennett (Winona Ryder) falls for the charms of Deeds when she's assigned to write an expose on him.
