This is truly the best movie that has ever gushed from the loins of Disney. I have 7 copies in constant rotation, each dedicated to a particular weekday for viewing. I quit my job and collect social security to support my habit,as well as stuffing envelopes during the rewind phase. On the weekends when my grandma comes over to clean, she usually plays Lars or Tony, and I get to be Gerry Garner. Once I asked some Jehovah's witnesses to be Nicholas and Simms, but one talked too much and the other had a crappy English accent. I used a microwave box to make my own go-kart in the living room <more>
for me to sit in when I get to part the wild horse's mane. I'm doggen 'em, Pat! I'm doggen 'em!
This is the best movie ever. I have watched it 1192 times. Ben Stiller's performance is excellent and the kids, although amateur, provide many, many, many laughs. This is a great movie to sit back and watch when you feel like using no brain power. The comedy is completely mindless and hilarious. Watching a group of obese children being "torchered" by a diet-obsessed ex-heavyweight is a great premise for a movie. it has all the elements of a good movie: you laugh, you celebrate, and maybe, if you're extremely sensitive cry. I don't know how you can't absolutely love <more>
this movie. My praises for this movie know almost no bounds. This is just a great movie. Well, I'm going to go achieve 1193!
The film is great, I don't need to write another review of the synopsis as there are so many below, but if you have any sense of humour at all you'll like this movie. If you're a dried up 60 year old prune reminiscing about the good old days of black and white cinema when you could see a film + popcorn for a shilling and sixpence, you'll hate it. Great for kids, enough stupid stuff to keep them entertained, Fantastic for teenagers/people in their 20s, enough sick/dry humour to satisfy and make you think 'holy crap can they say that in a DISNEY film????', and older <more>
middle aged people with a sense of humour will see its quirky side too.I just have one question, at one point with the seymour butts joke, does anyone know what josh actually says, as his joke is totally out of sync with his lip movements.
A classic that delivers laughs as big as the kids stomachs! (by HATED_IT)
Heavyweights is the story of a group of kids who with the help of their counselor go on a mission to take back their fat camp from a crazy man who has never interacted with kids before played by Ben Stiller who is intend on making it into a money making informercial. I first saw this as a child, and absolutely loved it. I must have watched it again on at least 5 other occassions. Recently I was in the video store and came across a copy of it for sale. After convincing my friend to buy it , we went back to his house and popped it into the VCR. I wondered if the film would hold up after all <more>
these years. Did it? Absolutely! In fact I may have gotten bigger laughs this time around. I do not understand why this film has a 5.1 rating, after reminding this movie to my friends they all recalled loving it, and everyone I recently watched it with loved it. Ben Stiller's character is hillarious, and the rest of the cast is great. Besides Ben, Kenan Thompson is the only other actor in this who went on to become somewhat of a star, which is suprising because all the kids give great performances. Tom Mcgowan, the man who plays Pat, seemed to be chosen for the role because Chris Farley passed on it, and John Candy died, but he gives a great performance.I know it sounds cliche, but Heavyweights is truly one of the few movies that people of all ages will love.9/10
****.5,4.5 out of 5 stars,they don't run the fastest they don't jump the highest but they have made one of the funniest films & well made film's I've seen. (by PJS-5)
This is another badly treated film it got knocked down as "Gross & dumb & places in a lot of offensive fat jokes & all in all abusive & offensive" well here's what I say about this.Gross & dumb:Hey I can name plenty of films grosser & dumber than thisOffensive fat jokes:being a bit overweight myself when I saw this film I personally was not offended by the film's humorAbusive & offensive:Sure Tony perkis made the film a bit abusive but if you wanna see abusive see "Major payne" but at least this film didn't rely on abusiveness unlike <more>
the other film & as in for the offensive part apparently the people who reviewed this film are a bit overly sensitve about the fat jokes because I could probably find a film that whould be a big offense to overweight people around.Okay now that I'm done with that lemme tell you that this was not a bad movie & if you're like me you won't be offended by this films humor so bye for now.
Loved it! Very entertaining, very original. One of Ben Stillers funny movies. Looks like a kid show but is actually very funny for ages 9-17. Great actors, loved Lars! Nice to see him have a little bit of a comeback from Steel Magnolias. It keeps you glued to your seat and once you think its over it isn't. It starts off when Jerry Garner is sent to Camp Hope Fat Camp by his mother and father. While there he meets some friends including Roy Kenan Thompson; Good Burger, Kenan and Kel, All that, etc.. and Josh Shaun Weiss; Mighty Ducks . When the owners of Camp Hope, Harvy and Alice <more>
Bushkin announce that they are no longer the owners of Camp Hope. Unfortunately, the new owner, is nothing but a health nut with a twisted mind; Tony Perkis Ben Stiller . It starts off when the kids have some weight gaining privilege's taken away, like their candy hiding spots or The Blob. From here, the campers decide to take a peek into Tony's bunk and find some of their letters written home, locked inside of a trunk. As they manage to escape, dangerous times await them. But when Tony takes them on a 20 mile hike up a mountain, the boys come up with a little plan of their own. I wont say much, but I will say that it includes the three B's: A Bare ass, a Booby trap, and a Big mess of trouble!
This is a movie about a group of fat kids at a fat camp run by a fanatical health freak played brilliantly by the genius that is Ben Stiller. If you thought he was funny in "There's Something About Mary", you'll die when you see "Heavyweights". Although it at first appears to be your everyday, average, cheesy Disney movie, "Heavyweights" is a very funny movie that, although it makes fun of fat kids, is not in any way offensive, because it is far too stupid to actually take offense at. However, the only way I would not recommend this movie to someone is if <more>
they have a big plug up their bum, and wouldn't know a good time if it jumped up and bit them. So, if you've got an hour and a half on your hands, and want to have a nice, easy, viewing experience, watch "Heavyweights".
Heavy Weights is not a politically correct movie. I first saw this movie as a child on the Disney channel and thought it was hilarious.****SPOILERS********The movie is basically about fat boys in a fat camp and their crazy summer with psycho fitness slut Tony Perkis Ben Stiller . Jerry is the leading fat boy. The film starts with him at his last day of school ready to enjoy a lazy summer. After he misses his bus and is almost attacked by a dog he comes home to find his parents are sending him to Fat Camp. Jerry is not pleased and screams at his Dr. Phil looking father "Your fatter than <more>
I am, you go to camp!" Jerry ultimately is forced to camp where he meets lovely fellow big boys, and realizes camp might not be so bad. They have go carts, "the Blob" and best of all no one picks on you because everyone is the fat kid. He makes many friends right away including a young Keenan Thompson.The movie really pokes fun of the mockery of fat children.1. The fat camps beloved owners played by Ben Stillers real parents have gone bankrupt and now new ownership has emerged in the form of former fat kid turned exercise Nazi Tony Perkis. This movie is where I first heard about Ben Stiller. He is great as the cruel Tony. He loves to embarrass his poor campers. At one point he cancels their lunch and simply tells them over the intercom "lunch has been canceled due to lack of hustle...Deal with it."CRUEL.2. The dance. This is another of Tony's sick twisted jokes and is hilarious. The boys have a dance with the girls camp and of course these girls are repulsed by the boys.3. Lars. This guy looks like one of the Gestapo. He is a counselor who has a thing for the camp nurse Julie. He is evil and perhaps his character is a mockery of a German Nazi. Lars is foreign and has an accent and marches around the camp with his Aryan looks blowing his whistle like a deranged fat hating Nazi.4. The baseball game. This is just downright unfair. The camp plays baseball against camp MVP, camp MVP is a SPORTS camp....Guess who won the game? 5. Food stealing. There cannot be a movie about fat camp without the stealing of food. Sounds funny and it is...after all no matter how many "glandular" or "hormonal" problems a person of generous girth has, ultimately the majority just ate and a lot...The boys go crazy when they learn the slop they have to eat and resort to desperate measures.6. Revenge. The boys are abused and downright sick of it. Their ultimate kidnapping of demonic Tony is hilarious. The scene at parents night when the parents see what their child is really going through is very funny! 6. The Apache Relay. The finale. This is where the camp again competes with camp MVP in order to win the Apache Relay.The apache relay is a serious of various obstacles that camp MVP always win..... The ending is really great.This movie certainly makes incredible fun of fat people, and not just fat people, but boys going through puberty. I found it hilarious than and still find it hilarious now. It may not appeal to anyone who does not like this sort of politically incorrect comedy, but for those who enjoy Ben Stiller or an occasional chubby joke may find this movie not only funny, but endearing. I would watch this with my brother and sister and we would laugh our heads off, but we were always rooting for the fat kids. Tony Perkis was the devil and we found the "capture" of him clever. Loved this movie.....may not be something for obese sensitive.
