Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Mr. Deeds is a 2002 Adam Sandler movie with the expected over-the-top physical comedy -- as well as some profanity, sexual references, drinking, and product placement. In one scene, a man is in a shower excessively soaping his buttocks so his rear end is covered in soap suds. While essentially a good-hearted character, Deeds tends to solve his conflicts by getting into fist fights with those he disagrees with. Overall, this is another very silly Adam Sandler movie, rooted in obnoxious humor best for teens and older.

Sexual Content

While instant messaging, one character tells another to "tap that" and to "bone." A man walks in on another man naked in the shower, excessively soaping his buttocks region. During a shareholders' meeting, a man makes reference to running a pornographic website. A recurring joke is the butler having a foot fetish. Romantic kissing.


Comic violence. A character has a foot damaged by frostbite and can no longer feel pain there; he proves this by having his butler strike him repeatedly on the foot with a fireplace poker, culminating in the butler stabbing the foot with the poker. A character's body is found frozen on top of Mount Everest. A character punches and kicks someone believed to be a mugger until the mugger is knocked to the ground. A fist fight breaks out at a fancy restaurant.


Frequent profanity. "Bulls--t," "s--t," "damn," "hell," "ass." On two occasions, characters use the middle finger gesture.

Social Behavior

The film's central theme is on the importance of character over the trappings of wealth and fame, and this message is shown through example and through dialogue.


Budweiser and Pepsi products are prominently displayed throughout the film. Characters stop off at a Wendy's for lunch and mention Frosty shakes. The lead character makes frequent references to wanting to write greeting cards for Hallmark.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters get very drunk and throw eggs at passing cars. At dinner, characters drink wine, but don't act intoxicated. At a pizza parlor, characters drink from clearly marked bottles of Budweiser beer. One character smokes a pipe, and another character smokes a cigar.
