From the creator of THE MIGHTY DUCKS comes HEAVYWEIGHTS, a comedy of enormous proportions! It's the hilarious story of a group of underdog kids who discover their beloved summer camp has been sold to a crazy fitness fanatic 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! You'll laugh out loud with these HEAVYWEIGHTS -- they're big, loud, and proud, and ready to win their way into your heart!
Fitness guru Tony Perkis has bought a summer camp devoted to helping the overweight child lose some pounds. Some of the kids, however, including young Gerry Garner, think he doesn't have their best interest in mind. Perkis seems more concerned with his pocket book than with his campers when he uses them as subjects in an exercise video he hopes will make him millions.
