90 - Holes (2003) A Bimbophobic Tale with Dumb Bitch Media
Sep 02, 2020

Holes is a key film for many of us. It opened our eyes to the issues in youth corrections, it gave us hope that seemingly intractable battles in climate change could be solved if we carried a boy up a mountain, and yes, it was also an important sexual awakening.

Holes tells the story of Stanley Yelnats IV, an unlucky young man played by a debuting Shia LaBeouf who grapples with his family's curse as he's sent to Camp Green Lake to dig holes all day after a pair of famous shoes end up in his possession. 

Ottawa comediennes/fashion influencers and hosts of the hilarious Dumb Bitch Media podcast Ev and Sophie (@bingodaddyy) join for this episode on this crucial film. We discuss the film's representation of youth corrections and the carceral state, as well as class mobility and getting horny for Sigourney Weaver respectfully.
