|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.
Holly and Eric admit they have tiptoed around the Novack’s house since taking over the care of Sophie. What initiates their change of attitude toward their living space? How do they make it their own? How does that help them move on with their new life?
What selfish interests does each of them have to give up? What are some of the sacrifices parents make for their kids? This script suggests there are benefits in having two parents, if possible. What are some of those advantages? How do Holly and Eric’s different personalities contribute to a better experience for Sophie?
Sexual promiscuity and the recreational use of illegal drugs are played for comedy in this movie. Why are the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases or impairment never discussed? What other consequences for these two activities are not addressed?
