I truly enjoyed this show about broken promises and redemption, even after generations. The story focuses on two kids sent to a prison camp meant to straighten out young criminals, although one was actually innocent. We learn over time that young Stanley's family's bad luck is due to his ancestor's broken promise to a magician. The movie actually tells three stories: that of Stanley and his friend at the camp, that of their ancestors many generations ago, and that of a 19th century interracial couple kept apart by bigotry. Eventually all the story lines combine and good and ill (symbolized by the motifs of onions and peaches throughout the movie) balance.
I highly recommend this movie, which tells of justice and good deeds repaid, for people of all ages.


mehh.... its an ok movie. Not as good as the book, of course. The movie is the *EXACT* same thing as the book. Even the dialouge is the same.

I really enjoy this movie.

I really enjoy the movie Holes. It follows the book quite well. Highly suggest reading the book if you haven't though.

Predictable Plot

This movie plot is fairly predictable. Worth watching once or twice if you are a fan of the book.


This is a awesome movie that kept me watching it over and over agian!

Not So Good

I thought it was really boring in the beginning and I lost intrest in the middle.



Not good

Just plain weird and boring

good movie

i like this movie alot


Not that good of a movie, but I guess no movie is good when you've seen it 100 times.

Holes, not the book

I reacently watched this movie again, and I enjoyed it. Sure, the book is better. The books is pretty much a magical experience, as the story unfolds. But here the movie is plenty entertaining. I can't imagine it done another way, and the music and actors help. John Voight as Mr. Sir! It's for sure a "little boy adventure story."
