Still shot from the movie: How Do You Know.

How Do You Know

How do you know when you are in love? Lisa Jorgenson (Reese Witherspoon) thought it would be obvious, but it is not when she considers her current relationship with Manny (Owen Wilson). And it gets even more complicated when she starts dating George (Paul Rudd). 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 does George’s father mean when he says, "Anger can be useful but watch out for bitterness"?

Lisa has her mirror smattered with inspirational quotes. Can these messages encourage people to do better? Would or do you post them in your home?

Lisa wasn’t ready for her dismissal from the team. What other life events might catch someone unprepared? How can a person anticipate changes like retirement, job loss, a new baby, empty nests or graduation?

While it is impossible to know exactly what someone is experiencing, how can a person show sympathy to another during difficult times? How does George interact with his assistant? What attempts does Matty make?
