Continuity mistake: In the scene where Stanley and Zero are digging to find the chest toward the end of the movie, the background behind them is just a dirt wall. In a following shot upon discovering the box, there are stairs that lead to the hole. In the next shot, these stairs are gone again and it's just the hole again. (01:38:05)
Based on the best selling book by Louis Sachar, Holes is a two-hour adventure surrounding Stanley Yelnats (played by Shia LaBeouf). Stanley is sent to Camp Green Lake for a crime he didn't commit. Camp Green Lake is a camp for juvenile delinquents, including characters such as X-Ray, Zig-Zag, Magnet, and the odd Zero. The campers are required to dig a hole each day five feet long and five feet wide. But, Stanley comes to think that there's something more to digging holes than just "building character." Unfortunately, Stanley will have to go through the evil Warden and Mr. Sir to prove anything first.
Trivia: The first time you see Sam selling his onions, a nearly bald man comes up to him (Mr. Collingwood) and Sam advises him to use onion cream on his head so hair will grow. Mr. Collingwood is Louis Sachar, the author of the book Holes.
