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.

When the neighbor across the street complained about the hotel, she is seen as the “bad person” in the movie. What does the writer of the movie do to place this character in such a negative light. (Notice her hair, music that plays when we see her, her tone of voice.) In a real life situation, would animals be happy living in that circumstance and would the neighbor have a right to complain? What happens to her in the end? Is this an additional way of making us dislike her?

Babe is rated G, meaning it is suitable for all audiences. Do you think it is?
