Chances are, as you sit in that movie theatre and fidget alongside your kids, you won't find yourself digging Holes.

The intention is a good one, but the blending of disparate ingredients under Andrew Davis' direction is often jarring.

[T]here's too much going on, and none of it is executed well enough to recommend.

A movie that feels like it's constantly interrupting itself.

The picture is all over the place -- sometimes a fairly stupid broad comedy, sometimes a rather threatening child-cruelty flick, sometimes tinged with magic realism.

An overly long, unwieldy movie.

Suffers even more than the Harry Potter films from a compulsion to be faithful to the source material, including cramming in a head-spinning assortment of characters and subplots.

Readers familiar with the book may negotiate the film's antic crosscutting, but newbies will need to pop a Dramamine before the lights dim.

[Holes] could've benefited from some judicious editing (at close to two hours, the movie occasionally borders on interminable), because there's far too much going on here.

Plods along with the velocity of molasses and really does feel like manual labor.

Though the disparate narrative threads are well integrated the film still lags periodically, but its real liability is on the special effects front.

Too broad for adults, too simple-minded for kids, too sprawling for anyone.

Davis can't find a consistent tone for this long-winded story.

If you aren't already pre-sold on the movie, as a fan of the book would be, there is little in it to amuse or intrigue you.
