    I agree with sarah9943. I teach students 7th-12th grades, and I wouldn't be comfortable having my junior high students go back and tell their parents about those lines in the clip. Otherwise it would be perfect for the lesson I have planned this week!

    Um..I would have to edit a few of the lines out. The guy who runs a pornography website and the lady who wanted to be a man. Good clip, but would need to be changed in order for me to show this at our church.

"Mr. Deeds" movie clips poster

When Longfellow Deeds, a small-town pizzeria owner and poet, inherits $40 billion from his deceased uncle, he quickly begins rolling in a different kind of dough. Moving to the big city, Deeds finds himself besieged by opportunists all gunning for their piece of the pie. Babe, a television tabloid reporter, poses as an innocent small-town girl to do an exposé on Deeds. Of course, Deeds’ sincere naiveté has Babe falling in love with him instead. Ultimately, Deeds comes to find that money truly has the power to change things, but it doesn’t necessarily need to change him.
