Disney's Holes DVD Review
Are you a fan of Louis Sachar's latest book, Holes? Then you'll be stoked to see Disney's big screen adaptation of the novel in theaters April 2003. Find out if this new teen flick is worth your time and money.
Holes - The StoryIf 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 StuffThe 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 FeaturesIf 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 LineSo, 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:
