|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.
Is comedy always an appropriate way to deal with sensitive themes? Do you think the stereotyped portrayals of gay people interfere with the messages promoting tolerance?
Some of the characters resort to punching and tackling when someone says something they disagree with. How is this violence used as a comedic tool? What does this method of resolving conflict teach about tolerance?
Safety note: A fireman sprays a Carbon Dioxide fire extinguisher in a man’s face for comedic purposes. It is very dangerous to shoot any compressed gas at another person—especially their face. Also, the gas in these extinguishers is extremely cold and can cause frostbite.
