    HEAVYWEIGHTS is a classic under-the-radar Disney comedy from 1995 that starred a then-relatively unknown Ben Stiller. Normally when Disney issues a Blu-ray release of a lower tier film--especially a film produced more than 10 years ago--the bonus features leave a lot to be desired if there's any there to begin with.
