An innocent youngster (Shia LaBeouf) is sent to a desert reform camp where the teens are forced to dig hundreds of holes, but with the help of a runaway pal (Khleo Thomas), he outsmarts the snarly camp owner (Sigourney Weaver) and mean overseer (Jon Voight). Based on Louis Sachar's adventure-packed novel, the film uses flashbacks to detail a century-old family curse. Director Andrew Davis offers abundant plotting and nifty visuals, offset by some undernourished characterizations. Brief violence and a crass expression. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
