Christy Carlson Romano,
"But if you forget to come back for Madame Zeroni, you and your family will be cursed for always and eternity." Those were the exact words spoken to young Elya Yelnats the day he forgot to repay Madame Zeroni. From then on his family was cursed with bad luck. One hundred years later Stanley Yelnats IV is accused of stealing a pair of cleats from a major league baseball player and sent to Camp Green Lake (a dry lake bed in the middle of the desert). It never rains at Camp Green Lake, it hasn't for one hundred years. The secretive and mysterious Warden has each inmate spend every day digging one hole to "build character." But when an artifact from the famous "Kissin' Kate" Barlow is found in a hole, the Warden forces the boys to work double time leading Stanley to deduce they're digging because the Warden is looking for something. But what? And how is the mystery of Camp Green Lake connected to Stanley's family curse?Written by

After hearing rave reviews of this movie off my sister (avid Disney fan) I was skeptical about watching it until a friend studied it for school. Unlike anything seen recently, I noticed that it stands away from traditional feel good movies, which in a way always become quite predictable towards the end. I cried - I'm a sook when it comes to overwhelmingly happy moments, (as Stanley carried Zero up the mountain) and also at the sad moments, as Sam is shot unfairly. Recommended for anyone who has an open mind about fate, and it can be spoiled by any 'non-believers' of Disney movies - best to watch it with children. Poor Stanly Yelnats - what a name.
