GirlHacker's Random Log

almost daily since 1999


The well-crafted book “Holes” is now a movie. A Disney movie. You must forgive my initial reaction wherein my brain conjured up a dull scene of several round holes in the ground tightening up into a montage of many sets of Mickey Mouse ears. But my fears can be put on hold. According to Glenn Lovell of the Mercury News, director Andrew Davis was able to push through a faithful adaptation of Louis Sachar’s novel by repeatedly reminding the studio that the award-winning and beloved book contained all the questionable scenes already. Some concessions were made for graphic violence and language, but with a screenplay by the author himself, the movie may effectively shed its cute mouse ears.
