Synopsis


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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Excellent transfer but one odd scene missing

    An excellent transfer to a fun and underrated movie. But for whatever reason they cut out the scene where Deeds and the two guys from Blake industries take their helicopter to Wendys to get food. The scene was in the DVD but taken out of the Blu ray. Kind of an odd scene to remove. Whats even worse is Deeds mentions his Biggie fries and Anderson talks about dreaming about Frostys.

    Good Adam Sandler flick on bl-ray

    If you are an Adam Sandler fan, then this blu-ray is for you. One of his better movies (I my opinion) and the PQ on this blu-ray is great. AQ is good too, but it's not like there are any explosion to boom your surround sound. Other than that, the audio is all it needs to be for a movie of this type.

    it takes more than slapstick to be funny

    never been much for Adam Sandler and his comedy, its take more than slapstick to make me laugh. I perfer wit and smart humor. This may make your 5 year old laugh but for sophisticated taste, you better leave this one alone. I'd have a better time watching Sesame Street. BORING and IDIOTIC!

    Sandler gets a lot of money from his rich uncle but along the way he has a trusty side kick and a villian...just like an old movie. This is good movie!

    There is nothing special or anything you haven't seen before from Sandler. Just a so-so movie at best.
