Mr. Deeds One of Frank Capra's best-loved stories gets a modernized and wildly slapstick reinterpretation in this romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler. When Preston Blake (Harve Presnell), a remarkably wealthy media magnate, dies with neither a wife nor children, the question on the lips of most of his associates is who will inherit the estate. The surprising answer turns out to be Longfellow Deeds (Adam Sandler), a cheerful but half-bright proprietor of a small-town pizzeria, as well as part-time greeting card poet, who was a distant relative of Blake. In order to claim his 40-billion-dollar inheritance, Deeds heads to New York City, where Blake's former associates, Chuck Cedar (Peter Gallagher) and Cecil Anderson (Erick Avari), introduce him to the city while trying to figure out how to get their hands on his new fortune. Meanwhile, Mac McGrath (Jared Harris), the producer of a sleazy tabloid television show, wants to get the inside scoop on Deeds, and comes up with perfect way to get it: he sends beautiful but unscrupulous reporter Babe Bennett (Winona Ryder) to sweep Deeds off his feet while she's wired for sound. Convincing Deeds that she's from a small town just like himself, Bennett quickly wins his heart, but while his affection is sincere, hers is not. He also displays a curious eagerness to defend her good name with his fists which quickly gets him in trouble. Meanwhile, as Deeds becomes the new laughing stock of New York thanks to Bennett's stories, Deeds decides it's time he did something big with his money, while Cedar and Anderson think they've finally found a way to take control of Deeds' holdings. Mr. Deeds also features supporting performances from John Turturro, Steve Buscemi, and Conchata Ferrell. John McEnroe and Rev. Al Sharpton make cameo appearances as themselves.Click A workaholic architect, frustrated in his job but determined to make a better life for his family, is bestowed with a powerful universal remote that allows him more control over his life than he ever knew possible in director Frank Coraci's high-concept fantasy comedy. On the surface, Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) seems to have it all, yet with all the demands forced upon him by his ungrateful boss (David Hasselhoff), Michael finds that setting aside time to spend with his loving wife, Donna (Kate Beckinsale), and two picture-perfect children, Ben (Joseph Castanon) and Samantha (Tatum McCann), has grown increasingly difficult. When a frustrating bout with the television remote leads the overworked husband and father to a nearby Bed, Bath & Beyond in search of a universal remote with the power to control all of his electronic devices, a curious peek into the back room leads Michael into the company of eccentric employee and talented inventor Morty (Christopher Walken). It seems that Morty has created a device that will not only allow Michael complete control over his television and stereo, but his entire life as well. As Michael discovers that the remarkable device has the power to muffle the barks of the family dog, zoom himself past an irritating quarrel with his wife, and even allow him to travel back and forth through time to different points in his life, the rush of being able to skip straight to the good parts in life soon leaves him feeling as if he's missing out on the total experience. Only when Michael begins to realize that the he has lost control of his life and the remote is now programming him does he finally learn that life is as much about the moments he'd rather forget as it is the moments he will always remember.
Adam Sandler has always been funny. Great purchase.

Dual Comedy Set
I got this double one disc dvd set (The Laugh Out Loud Double Feature)of the Mr. Deeds movie and Click film from my job due to the cheap price and my previous familiarity with the Mr. Deeds movie. The dvd option allows you to choose whichever movie you would like to see first. Click is a science fiction type of film that stars Adam Sandler as a successful architect named Michael Newman. Michael Newman loves his wife Donna Newman (Kate Beckinsale) and wants to also provide the best life for his kids Ben (Jospeh Castannon) and Samantha (Danielle Tatum). Newman’s life changes dramatically during a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond, when a mysterious person named Morty (Christopher Walken) gives him a remote control that allows him to skip through certain parts of his life. Donna Newman’s best friend Janine (Jennifer Coolidge) seemingly thinks that her friends has a charmed life and husband while unintentionally overlooking what he has to go through in order to provide for his family. There are countless celebrity appearances in the film as well (David Hasselhoff, Sean Astin, Henry Winkler, Julie Kavner, James Earl Jones, Rachel Dratch, Robert Schneider etc). Music featured in this movie are songs such as Show Me The Way by Peter Frampton, Hold The Line by Toto, and Linger by The Cranberries. The lead singer of the Cranberries (Dolores O’Riordan) also makes an appearance in the film. What pleasantly surprised me the most about Click was the spiritual slant to the film Click when Morty eventually reveals to Michael Newman who he really is. The film Good Deeds stars Adam Sandler as Longfellow deeds whose world transforms dramatically once he finds out that he is set to inherit billions from a late uncle named Preston Blake (Harve Presnell)who he never met. Longfellow Deeds finds out that news from Chuck Cedar (Peter Gallagher) and Cecil Anderson (Erick Avari) both high-level employees of Blake Media. Longfellow actually enjoys working at a pizzeria, delivering to various customers such as Crazy Eyes (Steve Buscemi) and residing in Mandrake Falls, New Hampshire. One of Longfellow’s employees Jan (Conchatta Ferrell)even mentions how Deeds is actually an owner of the pizzeria. He ends up considering a permanent stay in New York after he meets and falls in love with Babe Bennett (Wynona Ryder) a tv reporter. He also enjoys his new residence in New York and gets along with one of the employees linked with Blake Media Emilio Lopez (John Tutturo). Babe Bennett ends up encountering an ethical dilemma of covering up her true job from Longfellow Deeds in order to gather essential information and in hopes that her boss Mac McGrath will give her a promotion and pay rise. Of course, there are more actors/actresses affiliated with this movie and some of the following music is featured in Mr. Deeds; The Sweetest Thing by U2, Where Are You Going by the Dave Matthews Band, You Don’t Know How It Feels by Tom Petty, Sing by Travis etc.
