Many people dont seem to like it and I do agree that the film is kind of dated and the drama and writing feels forced from time to time, especially when it reaches for sentimentality and silly remarks about important stuff, which ultimately feels fluffy in its delivery and approach.

Deeds Goes to Town, but if you want to be enveloped in Capracorn, one of the very best kinds of "popcorn" films, you could do a lot worse than watch this film.
