Disney's Holes DVD Review

Disney's Holes DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Are you a fan of Louis Sachars latest book, Holes? Then youll be stoked to see Disneys big screen adaptation of the novel in theaters April 2003. Find out if this new teen flick is worth your time and money.

You've read the book, seen it on the big screen, and now you can own your very own copy of Holes on DVD and video! Find out if this Disney flick is worth your allowance, or if you should just stick to reading the best-selling novel.

Holes - The Story

If you're not familiar with the book, Holes is a story about a boy named Stanley Yelnats who is sent away to a juvenile detention camp for alledgedly stealing a pair of shoes. It is here at Camp Green Lake that Stanley ends up meeting some of the first real friends he's ever had in his life. At Camp Green Lake, the boys are made to dig holes in the desert "to build character." But, there is a secret buried out under the old lakebed that the Warden of Camp Green Lake is desperate to uncover.

Holes - The Good Stuff

The Warden is one nasty character and watching Mr. Sir squirm everytime he has to talk to her is well work the price of admission. You'll also be squirming at the mere mention of a yellow-spotted lizard for weeks after you see Holes. Those little reptiles are mighty scary! But don't worry - for the most part, Holes is the kind of flick that will put a smile on your face.

Holes - DVD Features

If the idea of owning your very own copy of Holes isn't enough to send you running to the video store, maybe the added bonus of the DVD special features will get you going. The Holes DVD includes interviews with all the D-tent boys (yup, that includes Zero and Stanley), the director and the rest of the cast. It also has a bunch of cool deleted scenes that you wouldn't have seen in the theater and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the D-tent boys music video!

Holes - Bottom Line

So, set aside some allowance and make the boys of D-tent (Armpit, Squid, X-Ray, ZigZag, Zero and Caveman, AKA Stanley,) part of your video library. It's a mystery worth solving. Holes Rating:5

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
