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.

Those familiar with the Los Angeles area will recognize Charlotte is living in an apartment directly facing Venice Beach. Do you think someone who walks dogs and answers phones on a part-time basis could afford this expensive location? What other portrayals in this film are just as unrealistic?

A comedic scene in this movie depicts a person playing a gag on someone who has nut allergies by hiding nuts in a food product. As these allergies are potentially fatal, this is no laughing matter! Parents will want to caution young viewers watching this movie about the dangerous implications of this stunt. Check this site for more information.
