Good movie... Adam Sandler is always funny and thoughtful. Have seen the original film and liked the updating of the story line.

Movie Reviews

Mr. Deeds
Kelly | Littleton, Colorado | 03/22/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was an entertaining movie with a sound cast. The story didn't quite measure up to the original as the remake, but there were some funny shining moments. While this is supposed to be an Adam Sandler film, John Turturro literally steals the movie. He is hilarious as Emilio Lopez the "sneaky sneaky" butler. This movie showcases his well timed comedic talent. Without his contribution, it would have been just an okay remake of a 1920's classic.

Not his best, not his worst; somewhere in the middle

"Okay, so I'm an Adam Sandler fan. I admit it. I will take the pies in the face. Some of his movies are better than others. This isn't one of the better ones; it isn't the worst, either. It has some truly hilarious moments and what is, arguably, John Turturro's best performance--as the faster-than-light Spanish man-servant. Turturro alone makes this film worth seeing and, to his credit, Sandler lets him fly as one of the daftest, cleverest characters I've seen in ages. Turturro utterly, completely, convincingly inhabits the character of Emilio, complete with cummerbund and foot fetish.Winona Ryder is pedestrian, Conchata Ferrell (one of the great underrated actresses of all time--check out her fine performance in Mystic Pizza) has terrible material to work with; and Steve Buscemi is literally nothing more than a running sight gag. There is, however, a fire-rescue scene involving a lot of cats that is howlingly funny. The supposedly feel-good ending is pretty flat but, still, if you need a little mindless fun, go see Mr. Deeds. It's not a total waste of the price of admission."
Take incongruities with grain of salt, and it's entertaining

"...As the title character, Sandler is a hero we pull for, but his old screwball antics do get in the way at times. No real hero would clobber senseless a whole reataurant full of people because they ridiculed him. But here, Sandler as the title character does so in a return to his screwball persona. One might even argue that that persona goes over the top when he goes after a purse-snatcher and doesn't stop with merely subduing him but continues to beat him while he is down, with a seemingly sadistic glee. Perhaps a real hero should show some restraint in such a situation, even considering that the purse-snatching could actually be a setup, as it in fact is in this case. To buy into the heroism of Mr. Deeds, we have to do some considerable winking past these gratuitous farcically sadistic episodes. For those who can do that, the movie can be passably enjoyable. Sandler is entertaining, even when incongrously so. The movie is elevated considerably by the pleasant surprise of Winona Ryder's performance, even though her character starts out as a participant in that purse-snatching setup...MR. DEEDS should be remembered as one of the brighter spots in her uneven career. Here she puts forth a charm we haven't seen in a long time, and her acting fits well into the story. As a co-star to Sandler, she meshed with his character well, certainly the best since Drew Barrymore in THE WEDDING SINGER...She might just be the most uniformly good part of MR. DEEDS, and that gives hope for a more evenly successful career in her future. All in all MR. DEEDS is a watchable bit of entertainment for those not too put off by its incongrous swings between irreverent farce and heartwarming feel-good story and romance."
