The Fast And The Furious

A lot of movie studios claim theyare putting the brakes on marketing R-rated material to children. After screening this teen testosterone tale, I'm convinced Hollywood has its foot on the wrong pedal. 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.

If members of your family see this movie, you may want to discuss the consequences that are all but eliminated from this script. What would likely happen if you tried some of the stunts seen in this movie? Where would these people have gotten the money needed to create their cars?

We also discovered the movie’s official website contains pictures of cars, boys, and girls that have been sent in by readers. The “girl” category contains pictures that parents may consider too explicit for their children. One picture is of a Playboy Playmate, and while she is almost dressed, the Internet address for her official site is on the picture. Children following this address will be led to a pornographic site that leads to many other such sites.
