Heavyweights (Heavy Weights) Reviews
Update: From the creative genius of Steven Brill (Mighty Ducks) and Judd Apatow? In the 90's, Brill was a stud and Apatow was a dud. Brill peaked here and Apatow must have done some serious Perkis-sizing because after Heavyweights his career blossomed. I bet you no one has done an in depth analysis of the creative juicy forces behind Heavyweights. Ben Stiller out of nowhere dominates this movie, kills it. Goldberg is hilarious. Another 90's kid classic that still holds up.
Lovable and laughable campy classic about fat kids going to fat camp. Emphasis on the word "camp". Completely unrealistic plot line with semi-realistic dialogue, this movie is a great portrait of mid-90s America in all it's gloriously obnoxious splendor.
Just a fun teenage comedy that really starts to show it's wear after you've turned 18.
