Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Mr. Deeds

Adam Sandler puts a humorous spin on Jimmy Stewart's character from the classic movie Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. After his grandfather dies, Mr. Deeds, then a small-town pizza delivery man, inherits the $40 billion fortune. Suddenly, he finds himself living the life of the rich. He quits his job, moves to New York, buys a mansion and meets a nice girl. He even hires a butler and runs his grandfather's pizza empire! While Sandler lacks Stewart's class, he more than makes up for it with wit and outlandish antics.
