Small town guy Longfellow Deeds (Adam Sandler) goes to the big city to collect a $40 billion inheritance from a long lost uncle. Living in a palatial mansion with the services of an unusual personal butler (John Turturro) isn't too bad. Things get even better when he meets a beautiful school nurse (Winona Ryder). But money changes everything, and things aren't what they seem. It's up to Deeds to straighten everybody out - with a few right hooks and lots of common sense.
