Mr Deeds product reviews

Small town kid, big time right hook.

In this goofy remake of Frank Capra's 1936 Mr Deeds Goes To Town, Adam Sandler is Longfellow Deeds, a loveable small-town eccentric who inherits $40 billion and the controlling stake in a multimedia empire owned by an unknown uncle. However, the slick M.D. of his uncle's businesses (Peter Gallagher), has plans to dispose of the empire to make a quick megabuck. Meanwhile, no-nonsense female reporter Babe Bennett (Winona Ryder) falls for the charms of Deeds when she's assigned to write an expose on him.

A small town man, who is loved by all, ends up inheriting a forty billion dollar empire Of course, along with this comes a businessman who simply wants to sell the company out to make himself rich and never mind everyone else.

The characters are good and what you would expect, though I did find Babe (Winona Ryder) to be quite annoying and would have happily replaced her with anyone else. LOL Icon But other than her the choices for actors was good. Keep an eye out for the usual cameos in Adam Sandler movies as they perform their small parts, fun as always. Emilio was by far the favourite character, with his love of changing peoples socks for them and his "very, very sneaky" appearances throughout the film.

The jokes are pretty standard and the only ones that still have me laughing, half a dozen viewings of the movie later, are the ones involving Emilio, simply because I find him so much fun and love his whole character. I could easily watch a movie just about his character. Everything else in this movie gives what is expected, some laughs, some romance and a little bit of action.

A decent Adam Sandler movie, better than some but not yet his best.

Product reviews for listing 5749: Pirates of the Airwaves -  Topic: Radio

Product image for Pirates of the AirwavesAuckland Viaduct, October 1966: a group of determined young men defy the police and government and, to the cheering of their fans, launch a coastal ship that has been converted to a pirate radio station which they intend to use to broadcast from the Hauraki Gulf.

It is the birth of commercial radio in New Zealand. Crazy as it seems, this is what it took to break the stronghold the Broadcasting Corporation had on national broadcasting ... more...
