5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES! August 29, 2003
Format:DVD
This movie is hilarious!! Someone reviewed this movie on cd now and said that the messege to the movie is that fat kids are better then everyone else and all the healthy kids are stupid, and that it's full of stereotypical stuff. Well, if you happen to pay attention to the movie a little then you'd see that the messege to the movie was that over weight kids can do just as much as skinny kids and it also says that you shouldn't make fun of someone just because they are bigger and more heavy. It also says to be happy for who you are, even if you are a big kid. Anyway, I love this movie, I watch it whenever it is on and I end up telling my self, "I gotta buy this movie". So I'll have to buy it sometime. Ben Stiller is hilarious in "Heavyweights". Ben Stiller Plays the new owner of Camp Hope, and he puts all the kids on really unsafe diets. Like 20 mile hikes, food deprevation, and more. All the kids at the camp decide to rebel against him! I'd give this movie more stars if I could. Really great movie!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh look a deli meat, and the best movie ever June 6, 2003
By Steve
Format:DVD
This is by far Ben Stiller's best performance ever, and if you can't appreciate it you obviously haven't seen it enough times. These people who give the movie one star, spouting non-sense about it putting skinny people in a false light, are simply incompetent. I'm skinny and when I sleep I make a very disturbing sound don't be alawmed I'm fine, and my feelings aren't hurt by this movie. These critics are spreaders of negativity and I won't have them corrupting my cult movie. How would their fathers like to know that their children are destroyers. Here is a suggestion for watching the movie...watch it in a large group of people who truly appreciate it and can quote it, fast-forward till Ben Stiller arrives, watch the movie fast-forwarding through the sappy fat kid moments like the go-cart and dock ("keep your washboard stomachs and oily muscles") scenes and press stop when Ben Stiller leaves. You will learn valuable lessons like regardless of whether or not it will "smush" always have crazy guys locked up in cages through over hershey's kisses making your queen proud, and that lunch can be cancelled due to lack of hustle. In closing I have one final thing to say "Come on you devil log."

Format:VHS Tape
Pulsating under multiple layers of make-up, Ben Stiller's portrayel of camp owner Tony Perkis is one of the finest performences in cinematic history. While critics will say this film hits you over the head with mindless fat jokes and a mediocre message, the underlying reality is that somehow Stiller overcame what, at one point, must have been an inane Disney script. This movie is a triumph mixing pre teen psychological angst, satirical anarexic paranoia, sentimental summer hijinks, and subtle detailed infomercial insanity. From the "blob" to the black kid, the underlying themes of society's acceptance and approval bubble through the seemingly unilayered comedic glory. "I rise, I rise, I rise" sings the movie's spirit between the wonderfully chosen songs on its soundtrack. (Keep an eye out for who's REALLY playing "Papa" at the end--wink wink). This movie could not be improved. Now that Kubrick is gone we have one name to look to. Bravo, Mr. Stiller (either one) Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Ben Stiller's funniest films! October 17, 2005
By Zack H.
Format:DVD
12 year old Gerry Garner joins a group of "heavy" kids that are sent to their favorite fat camp for the summer, "Camp Hope" (a place where they're supposed to lose weight, but instead have a fun time). The kids find out that the camp has been sold to a crazy fitness instructor named Tony Perkins (Ben Stiller), so now, the camp has turned into a living hell for the kids. No more candy, or fun things like Go Karts and "The Blob". Tony wants the kids to lose weight, so he'll be able to make a profit from his fitness TV commercials (he has a camera man follow him around the camp). However, the kids rebel against Tony, because they want to have fun, not exercise, therefore, Tony starts to go crazy (in a hilarious way), so he decides to counter their actions, for example: one day, he takes their lunch away, and on another day, takes them on a 20 mile hike, among other things. Gerry and his new friends, along with the original camp staff members Pat, who has visited the camp every summer for the past 18 years, and a goofy counselor named Tim who became fit before the summer, as well as a new nurse named Julie, decide to take the camp back.

Ben Stiller is HILARIOUS in this movie. Seeing him as an insane health nut, patting kids down, searching for a pez dispenser or watching his character getting mad at the kids is great. While the film is not a cinema masterpiece, Stiller's performance in this film is great, and he delivers some of the funniest lines I've heard in a movie. His character in this film is like a younger version of White Goodman in "Dodgeball". Is this a guilty pleasure? Definitely.

As for the DVD, in 2002, Disney established a new policy whereby any movies that they feel have limited adult appeal will be released on DVD in Pan & Scan only. No widescreen DVD.

This is a great movie that teaches us we can't be forced to lose weight but should have fun doing it. Tony Perkis is a great villain trying to do the opposite. Read more
