This is one of my favorite films of all time. I read the book and likedit, but this movie expands on everything the book made famous. Theacting is fantastic, especially from Jon Voight, who plays Mr. Sir, avery evil character. This film has a certain way of storytelling thatkeeps you hooked throughout, until the end where everything is pulledtogether for a great ending. I also love the way this is directed, byflashing back and forth between the modern day and Stanley's ancestors'stories. The story was written by Louis Sachar, yes, but it seems thatthis story is made for film, and Andrew Davis does a great jobdirecting it. I definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys goodmovies.

"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.

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 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!
