HOLES was actually a pretty good movie. That's not at all to say that it was a faithful adaptation of the award-winning children's novel, but I liked it, and for a modern Disney movie (and a Shia LaBeouf movie), it was possible to sit through.

Fabulous book, fabulous adaptation! Amazing kid actors, especially Shia.
AC rating: Yet again there was two different versions of commentary. One with the fabulous Louis Sachar and with the director (?) I think and the other with four of the kids, including Shia. Oh boy. Talk abo...
