|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.
How does Jacob objectify women? What argument does he use to get Cal to do the same? How likely is it that these two regular customers at the bar don’t run into someone who has already seen them in action, but instead have an ever-changing sea of beautiful and willing women to fish from night after night?
In what ways does this script create a male fantasy? What characters are in love with Cal? What few things does Cal need to change to become an irresistible chick magnet? How does he justify his adulterous actions? Why is his behavior more acceptable than that of his wife? And how about Jacob? Are high quality women really attracted to studs that just need taming?
The practice of kids taking and sharing naked pictures of his or herself is a serious issue, with serious consequences. Check here for a real life example of teens that used a cell phone for this purpose.
Unlike the parents depicted in this movie, take a moment to discuss this topic with your children.
