    Synopsis


    Heavyweights
    Camp Hope is a summer camp for fat kids; it is also the locale of this Disney family comedy. All of the kids at Camp Hope have a weight problem. It is the one place they can go without feeling different. But when the previous owners declare bankruptcy, the camp is purchased by an obnoxious fitness freak who becomes obsessed with changing his chubby charges into budding body builders. He immediately begins serving them low calorie foods and subjecting them to rigorous exercises. Part of his motivation is greed: he is in the process of writing a book, and filming an infomercial on weight loss. The boys at camp rebel and mayhem ensues. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

      Heavyweights tells the hilarious story of a group of underdog kids who discover their beloved summer camp has been sold to a crazy fitness fanatic (Stiller) who's determined to make their lives miserable. The new owner plans to keep the boys huffing and puffing, but these hungry kids have a plan of their own. They unite to turn the tables, take back their woodsy hideaway and challenge the rival camp to the most outrageous summer games of all.

      Heavyweights is a fun, if shallow, film. It is nice to see kids beat up Ben Stiller. The blu-ray is great with nice picture and sound. The special features are really nice with a commentary, deleted scenes and more. Surprised that a film like this would get the royal treatment on blu-ray.

      If you haven't seen this movie, but seen Dodgeball, you need to reevaluate how you watch movies. You just skipped straight to the sequel instead of starting from the beginning of the White Goodman (Ben Stiller) movie universe. Seriously, watch this to see how Globo Gym started.

      I absolutely loved this movie growing up. I think it's hilarious and was ahead of its time. I'm 25 now and I still love watching it. I'm glad they brought it to bluray and included a commentary, because I love listening to the "behind the scenes" comments.

      Very Funny!

      'Heavyweights' is a very funny picture that had me laughing from just about start to finish. Ben Stiller plays the type of role he's best at, and the whole plot of the movie is actually quite rich, and also manages to cover quite a bit of ground in the realm of moral values. Kids will like this one for sure! Highly recommended!

      I love a feel-good 90s slapstick comedy and Heavyweights delivers big time, but the most rewarding aspect of purchasing a DVD or bluray is getting a glimpse at deleted scenes. That scene where that one kid tells a joke but the dialogue doesn't match his lips? The original (much dirtier) joke is on this bluray.

      This movie is a classic had a couple of stars in before they we're really stars up and coming. Ben Stiller was funny and had his parents in it. Kids will luv this movie I know I did.
