We gave it a B+

A fine adaptation of Louis Sachar’s very popular young-adult adventure about how an ancient family curse affects a bunch of boys as they dig holes in the hot Texas sun. What the movie lacks in Potter magical grandeur (and budget) on screen, it more than makes up for in intimacy and its affection for the look of sunbaked earth and dirty-faced kids.
