I've always thought that Adam Sandler's earlier roles were his better ones. Here, he plays a lovable, niaeve, hopeless romantic who manages a pizza parlor in a small New Hampshire town and suddenly finds himself as the sole heir to a fortune that would put a considerable dent in our country's national debt. Throughout this film, Mr. Sandler proves my point as I continuesly find myself having no trouble wishing the best for his character as he adjusts to being probably the richest man in America (maybe I'm just sucking up for a cut of the dough.) Then, there is also the fact that this film has a solid story to tell rather than just give Mr. Sandler an oppurtunity to spout weird jokes. The supporting cast was all wonderful. Peter Galliger was the perfect slimey, self-serving business man and Conchata Ferrell may have begun her possibly type-cast role as the abrassive but ultimately loyal employee (think "Two and a Half Men" here) with this film...note that this isn't the worst thing in the world as I always enjoy her performances. I am glad to say that Steve Buscemi is around and will say something weird every so often, so you (and I) can sleep tonight knowing that all is right in the world. I've never been the biggest Rob Schneider fan, but his parts in this film made sense and gave me a few extra laughs. There are many more supporting cast members and many more reasons to enjoy this film. I do wonder about Winona Ryder's performance as Adam Sandler's love interest...I understand that at certain times, she was "playing a part" and, being that her character is not a professional actress, certain parts of her performance were supposed to come off as forced, but I felt that some parts where she was to "be herself" also seemed forced. Ultimately though, if I had to make a list of my favorite Adam Sandler films, this one would be in the Top Two (I won't tell you which spot...that's just no fun.) I recommend it to any fan of Mr. Sandler's or any fan of a good, heart-warming, comedic film. Enjoy.
