Mr. Deeds

Updated on February 24, 2013

Warning this scene contains graphic language and mild violence.

Look out folks here comes the black foot!!!

I'm honestly at a lost for words about this film. I loved the original film because of its witty dialogue and character development which this film lacks. "Mr. Deeds" is a remake of the 1936 classic, "Mr. Deeds Goes To Town." The story is about a small town Pizza Owner and Poet named Longfellow Deeds, living in Mandrake Falls, who inherits forty billion dollars from his uncle Blake after he dies. Unfortunately, Deeds finds himself a victim of circumstance when he learns that Blake's investors are trying to sell his uncle's company. Meanwhile, Faye Bennet a.k.a. Pam Dawson tries to get close to Deeds to cover his exploits on her news show, but she suddenly starts to fall for the guy. I have to be honest when I say that I think Frank Capra would shoot himself in the freaking head if he saw this. Not only does this film take everything that was good about the original, but it spits it out and tries to pass off something else. Another remake gone bad.

Everything from the acting and direction was god awful because you knew everything that was going to happen at the end.

Plus, I don't care how nice a guy is but come on! Adam Sandler made the character seem like a freaking loveable idiotic character who's never done anything wrong. I mean what idiot would buy Ferari for an entire small town. However, I do confess Adam was funny during some moments in this film like the restaurant fight, and when he introduced his black foot. However, most of the flaws lie with the characters, though.

"Mr. Deeds" is prime example why film shouldn't use stereo typed character as the main character because the viewer won't care about them. The reason why the classic was good was because the viewer cared about the characters because they were real. Mr. Deeds was an honest guy, yet in the remake he's a boy scout on crack. Not a good sign.

I'm speechless about this film. I wanted to like this film, but Capra would be ashamed of this remake. Overall, a remake gone bad.

      I watched this for the first time on TV the other day....I am a fan of Sandler's occasional movie charm, wit and comedy so of course I liked it! But everyone is entitled to their own opinion....And I still think you write excellent reviews, Stevennix!
