Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Time has been kind to the discarded fat camp movie, finding Heavyweights more digestible these days, after years spent processing the askew sense of humor shared by Apatow and Company."

"A throwback to the early Disney live-action films that coasted on their premises and were content to provide lightweight entertainment and nothing more."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis

‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
