Holes (2003) PG - 3 Stars

Children are sent to the a juvenile detention camp in the desert. Stanley Yelnats IV (Shia LaBeouf) is one of these boys sent to the camp for stealing. But he didn't do it. The tennis shoes fell to his feet after thrown over a bridge as he walking under. Being in the right place at the wrong time, he now thinks it's true what his family has told him his whole life - his family is cursed.

Stanley meets up with a gang of misfits and the children must dig great holes for their punishment and to build character. At least that is what they are told. The warden (Sigourney Weaver) of Camp Green Lake is using the boys to help uncover the mystery that could help break the family curse.
