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 is the unspoken, but obvious reason men see Leslie as a buddy rather than a possible girlfriend? What is it Morgan has that makes her dates overlook her personality flaws?

Leslie’s claims that she "ain’t no salad eating girl," while Morgan confesses she never eats in public. How do these statements sum up the image each woman presents? Although Leslie often seems self-conscious and Morgan usually appears confident, which of the two of them do you think is really the most comfortable in her own skin?

Why does Leslie say nothing when Morgan walks away with the man she’s in love with? Is she being a victim or a true friend? If you were in her shoes, what would you do?
