Adam Sandler's Film "Mr. Deeds" Gets Some Operatic Humor

The 2002 film, Mr. Deeds, features Winona Ryder, Adam Sandler, John Turturro, Steve Buscemi, and Peter Gallagher, in a non-stop romp of humor. One scene takes place in a restaurant when a table of guests decides to make fun of Sandler's character. One gentleman proclaims, "I sing at the Metropolitan Opera" and proceeds to let loose with a vocal thank you for corporate sponsorship: "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." [Source]
