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.

While we can’t recommend this film for any age of child, if your children do see it, you may want to discuss some items with them, including the many slang sexual references that may not be considered appropriate in your family.

Meyer’s characters (he plays three of them) are portrayed as having obsessive sexual behaviors, and children may accept these portrayals literally, not recognizing that they are intended to be humorous. What are the consequences of this type of behavior in reality?
