    This movie changed my life

    This is the greatest flick of all time. Ben Stiller is a comic genious. If you have not seen this flick, go now and watch it. Who could forget- 'Come here you devil log', or 'Im feeling skinny Tony.' Priceless. Thank you Mr. Stiller, you are a king amonng men.

    THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER

    If you have not seen this movie, you are missing out on an experience (1 hour and 37 minutes) of side splitting laughter. Remember...I have a severly deviated septum. At night I make a very dest'ar'bing sound. Don't be alarmed...I am fine.

    HILARIOUS

    This movie has got to be one of the Top 5 MOvies on my list. Ben Stiller is at his best (Although his portrayal in DODGEBALL came pretty close).I was laughing almost every second. While i was babysitting, we watched this movie. On vacation, I watched this movie. I LOOOOVE it! Definately a 'rainy day' movie.

    I Also Recommend:

    After seeing this again years later, it's still a hilarious movie and one of Stiller's funniest roles.

    Gerry along with a group of overweight kids head to camp but find there's a new owner name Tony Perkis (played by a very funny Ben Stiller). As days go by, the kids along with Pat, Tim and Julie decide to fight back when camp's not how it used to be and from there you get some weird but memorable moments and quotes. Everyone was hilarious especially Lars. Never get tired of watching this movie. This was back when Disney movies were great. But nowadays not so much, well with a few exceptions I guess. Recommend this childhood favorite that's great for the whole family.

    A reviewer

    I thought this was a very good movie actually. The only differance is when it was released on DVD it didn't have any special features on it. I rented it on VHS and I don't think I'm gonna buy the Disney pan & scan t.v. DVD because , it is simply missing way to much, If Disney ever released a better edition of the DVD , I would definatley buy it. So any of you that have waited long enough to buy this movvie , then go ahead and buy it but I would recommend that you buy the VHS version untill a better edition of the DVD comes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Family Comedy

    Camp Hope ah the great outdoors, but not for these fat kids. They like to stay inside and just get bigger and when they're around each other they don't feel different. When the camp goes bank robbed they turn it over to this new guy (Ben Stiller) who's going to get every kid he can into the best shape of their life. For these kids that's going to be a problem. So as they go through the camp season they take over and with a great ending. FUNNY is what we give it from the New York Times

    Ben Stiller's Greatest Comic Performance- Seriously.

    It's easy to pass this movie off as BS Disney family fare, and to be honest half the movie is. The fat kid going to fat camp and learning to join up with the other kids triumph over adversity, and be happy about himself plot acts as the Costello straight man to Stiller's off-the-wall over-the-top antics. Stiller plays Tony Perkis, a 30 year old spoiled rich kid who ''educated in private schools my whole life, I'm excited to interact with children for the first time.'' He, with daddy's money, buys out the camp from loving owners (Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara), and brings it into the 90's. When his plans to turn ''this summer into the number one weight loss infomercial in the country'' fall apart, Perkis gets crazier and funnier with every scene. A great family film, but seriously fantastic humor that will have you literally rolling on the floor.

    a very funny movie!

    This movie is very funny! Tony is funny: ''Congradulations your the heaviest kid here!'' It's about these overweight boys whose parents send them to a fun summer camp, the kids soon find out it isn't fun at all. At least not with Tony taking over. Watch the rest for your self, you'll enjoy it!!
