9.7/10.My favorite Adam Sandler movie.The guy's just funny. Here he works great with Winona Ryder, far better than the three times with Drew Barrymore. The story's well done with solid performances by everyone especially Adam.Yes I've heard of Jack And Jill but everyone's got a few bad movies, all the good actors anyway.Longfellow Deeds is the sort of guy you'd want as a friend as he cares more about using his wealth to help people than to buy them.This is the sort of message we need especially in these troubled times nowadays.One of Adam Sandler's best movies, he rocks.

Revealing mistake: When Deeds rescues the last cat from the fire, if you look closely, you can see the fire-proof glove he has on his hand. (00:50:45)

Question: What does Babe mean when she says "our sense of ironic detachment" (stating that Deeds doesn't share it)?

Answer: Irony is basically the opposite of expectation, whether it be intentional or not. Ex. A children's party clown is diagnosed with clinical depression - ironic, because that's the opposite of what you'd expect. People who are purposely ironic are often that way because they either are overly pretentious or just don't care. Detachment is typically being purposely removed, overly objective or aloof from a situation or even life in general. Ex. A jaded individual who doesn't like to do things most people enjoy because he finds it tedious or pointless. In this context, it appears Babe is trying to imply that as glorified gossip-pushers, she and her boss are badly disconnected from the norm and are jaded, to the point they generally no longer actually care about people or stories - they're just in it for money and exposure. Whereas Deeds is a genuinely good guy who doesn't buy into this way of thinking/living.
