Fred Claus

It isn't easy being the brother of a big legend, so Fred Claus (Vince Vaughn) doesn't even try. But when his life of crime lands him in jail, it is his sibling Santa (Paul Giamatti) who arranges to have him do his community service time at the North Pole. Still ungrateful, the black sheep plays in the workshop and leads the elves astray. 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.

What happens when Fred’s mother constantly compares him to his younger brother? What are the dangers of measuring children against one another? How does it affect their family relations?

How does Fred fulfill the promise he makes to his baby sibling?

What makes Santa change his view of the Naughty and Nice list?
