While it should be an absolute abomination of film, Heavyweights takes the ridiculous premise of a children’s fat camp taken over by an overzealous health nut and makes it work in a way that only  a 90s comedy could. The plot is ridiculous and the acting peaks at “fine,” but there’s a special charm weaved throughout the movie that somehow elevates it above all of its troubles.

Release Date: February 17th, 1995
