Can you dig it?

"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 the gypsy 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? (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Reviews:
I just read the book for the first time and lets say it made me love this story even more. I had never read the book before I saw the movie, and so when I saw this movie I loved it. I think it has a great story and I truly enjoyed it. I especially loved the romance between Kate Barlow and Sam. :) Haha.. Of course I do! I love any kind of romance even when it's cheesy. "I can fix that." Love that part in the movie!!! So sweet! Anyways, this movie was great, and the story was awesome. It also followed the book extremely well and the reason is because the author wrote the screenplay for the movie! Incredible.. I appreciated how this movie that good things will happen to you if you are honest. It just might take some time or test your patience, but it will happen.
