Longfellow Deeds (Sandler) is a sweet, lovable guy leading a simple but happy life in the tiny hamlet of Mandrake Falls, New Hampshire. Deeds is admired by the locals who crowd into his pizzeria to hear him recite his offbeat (but hilarious) greeting card poetry.

Life is good at the small town restaurant until two corporate executives bring news that Deeds is about to rolling in a different kind of dough. A long-lost relative has left him an inheritance of 40 billion dollars along with the largest media company in the world, a football team, a basketball team, and a private helicopter ready to whisk him off to corporate America.

It's a fish out of water, rags-to-riches story that has local tabloid reporters, including Babe Bennett (Ryder), salivating. With the help of his trusty valet, Emilio (Turturro), Deeds ultimately discovers what life is really all about and has to prove that money changes everything... but not everyone.
