Pass The Popcorn: Holes

This is my first Pass The Popcorn. The movie that I picked is a Disney film called "Holes", based on the book by Louis Sachar. I've always loved this movie, it is a bit of a comedy to me.
Stanley Yelnats is a good young kid who is accused of stealing a donated famous pair of shoes, from his baseball hero Clyde Livingston otherwise known as "Sweet Feet". He is sent to a camp in Greenlake, Texas for 18 months as his sentence for his "crime". At this camp, all of the boys there are to dig one hole everyday.

Hector Zeroni "Zero"
Katherine Barlow (Otherwise known as "Kissin' Kate Barlow)

This movie is a fun movie, with a pinch of romance, a lot of comedy, and a bit of action and mystery involved. Common Sense Media is a site where reviews of movies, music and books are given. They say that a good age range for Holes is around age 10. You can check out their review here.

For me, it's always been one of my favorite movies. I loved the story of the onion man Sam and Kate Barlow, along with the old flashbacks of Stanley's ancestors lives.
