The award-winning bestseller comes to life in this phenomenally fun, adventure-filled movie starring Emmy Award-winner Shia LaBeouf (Outstanding Performer In A Children's Series, Disney Channel's EVEN STEVENS, 2000). Dogged by bad luck stemming from an ancient family curse, young Stanley Yelnats (LaBeouf) is sent to Camp Green Lake, a very weird place that's not green and doesn't have a lake. Once there, he's thrown headlong into the adventure of his life when he and his colorful campmates -- Squid, Armpit, Zigzag, Magnet, X-Ray, and Zero -- must dig a hole a day to keep the warden at bay. But why? Through it all, Stanley and company must forge fast friendships as they try to unearth the mystery of what's really going on in the middle of nowhere. Filled with humor and heartwarming messages of friendship and teamwork, HOLES is a treasure everyone will dig.

The casting for this film was excellent. Who else could play the bad-ass female camp warden better than Sigourney Weaver? Shia LaBeof plays Stanley - he looks like a baby! I didn't realize that he had done much acting before the Transformers movies. He is great in this movie (way better than in Transformers, in my opinion. That is no doubt partly a function of scripting. It's hard to act well if the dialogue is crap. Anyway....)
Other actors you may recognize that are in this movie include Jon Voight, Patricia Arquette, Henry Winkler, and Dulé Hill. This was a really fun movie and very faithful to the book. If you loved the book, you'll love the movie too.
Since my students had completed the reading of teh book, a week prior, they knew every scene and what was going to happen in it.
Currently, my class is reading, Bud, Not Buddy; unfortunately, I could find no DVD/movie for that one. I wish I could.
Thank you, as always, for your promptness in delivery!
I guess this means I should change my user name, since I am not "disgusted" anymore. I chose that name when Amazon sent me Petting Farm, with no DVD.
I thought it was a terrific story, with many little pieces which miraculously came together in the end in a series of amazing coincidences. It was a similar kind of story telling that happened on Seinfeld, but this is not a comedy.
There is a very somber, but brief, look at racism in the Old West. Definitely a talking point for children, though perhaps not for those younger than 10 or 11.
I highly recommend it!
