HOLES is not your average Disney stuff- it's very, very fun, even foradults who usually cringe at the cutesy, focus-group designed "familyentertainment" that Uncle Walt's studio passes off as live-action.Perhaps the secret of this film's success is in its faithfulness to theoriginal book, which is a little bit darker than your average kidstuff. The action begins when Stanley Yelnats is sent to a boys' prisoncamp, where all the inmates are forced to dig holes under the desertsun as a form of rehibilitation. But as the story progresses, Stanley'stale becomes interwoven with that of a legendary treasure, and thisadventure becomes ten times more fun than any Disney movie about anall-boy prison camp has any right to be. Jon Voight is especially nastyand colorful, and Sigourney Weaver is beautiful, as always.

"But if you forget to come back for Madame Zeroni, you and your family will be cursed for always and eternity." Those were the exact words spoken to young Elya Yelnats the day he forgot to repay Madame Zeroni. From then on his family was cursed with bad luck. One hundred years later Stanley Yelnats IV is accused of stealing a pair of cleats from a major league baseball player and sent to Camp Green Lake (a dry lake bed in the middle of the desert). It never rains at Camp Green Lake, it hasn't for one hundred years. The secretive and mysterious Warden has each inmate spend every day digging one hole to "build character." But when an artifact from the famous "Kissin' Kate" Barlow is found in a hole, the Warden forces the boys to work double time leading Stanley to deduce they're digging because the Warden is looking for something. But what? And how is the mystery of Camp Green Lake connected to Stanley's family curse?

I couldn't keep from commenting after reading the very short "Not bad"commentary. This movie is much better than just not bad. The acting isstellar, even from the children in the cast, who don't play cute oranything else but act just like my son's friends. The movie is smartand expects it's audience to be as well. The double back flash storylines are imaginative and contribute to the story rather than act astime filler. I watched this movie with my kids and then I watched itagain by myself a few days later. If you have kids and are sick todeath of movies that inspire a diabetic coma with their syrupysweetness, then check out "Holes." My 6-year-old enjoyed it as much asmy 11-year-old, and my husband and I enjoyed it as much as the two ofthem. How many movies can you say that about?
I recorded this ages ago but only got round to watching it today. Ihave been ill so had run out of stuff to watch! I am so glad I saw it,and which I could erase my memory and watch i again for the first time.This movie is so wonderful! It reminded me very much of Fried GreenTomatoes At The Whistlestop Cafe.
The story goes back in time and at the end of the movie we see what theconnections are. Some people have said this is a kids movie. I disagree- it may be made by Disney and many characters are children, but I am23 and I LOVED it! There were moments when my spine tingled. The storyis unlike any other film these days, full of adventure. I have justordered the book from amazon, can't wait!
