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.

How did Paul’s one decision to betray his team by throwing the game, affect the rest of his life? What are the fans’ and the inmates’ reaction to him? What kind of choices can have life-altering effects on a person?

How does Paul regain the respect of the other prisoners? How does that change the attitude of the inmates toward joining the team?

Rob Schneider makes a cameo appearance to offer the same one-liner he gives in The Waterboy and Little Nicky. Can you think of other movie actors, directors or producers who have built a reputation for similar running themes in their work?
