Description: Fitness freak (Ben Stiller) takes over a camp for overweight kids and decides to whip them all into shape. But after too many over-the-top exercise sessions and minuscule meals, the not-so-happy campers rebel. Funny and empowering, this family favorite was cowritten by Judd Apatow and features cameos by Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller (Ben's parents). 1995. 100 mins. Rated PG.
