But when the dogs set off on the trail of the dog-napper, they find 101 times more tail-wagging adventure than they ever imagined. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Talk about the movie with your family…

When this movie was made in 1961, portrayals of smoking were very common. What has changed to make such depictions politically incorrect? Do you think other kinds of behaviors shown in today’s movies may go out of fashion in the future?

How did the animals work together to rescue the stolen puppies? In your life, how can teamwork also prove to be more effective than individual efforts?
