    Wow how did this get such a high rating. I saw it the other day an i would have worked out but i was on a boat. Some terrible acting and random contrived story. Immature and childish human and almost disgustingly one-dimensional stereotypical characters. Only a couple of performances make it just about bearable.

    The movie is inane. It sucked like hoover, was cheesy like velveeta, and corny like Fritos. The only demographic that I could accept liking this movie is six year-old school girls. Thus, I hope that all of these absurdly high ratings came from said demographic.

    This is the worst movie EVER if you want to know what really happens you should read the book.

    Holes will no doubt speak clearly and appealingly to its intended early teen audience.

    It's great to see an action-adventure family film with heart as well as humor, whimsy alongside wisdom, and a compelling narrative.
  3. It eschews obvious effects, but even more impressively, it tells a story without an obvious moral. It assumes that kids can wrestle with a fairly complicated narrative and draw their own conclusions.
