Still shot from the movie: The New Guy.

The New Guy

High school hijinks and bullying attitudes are more than extracurricular activities in this oft re-done story about a geek determined to become cool. Heavy sexual content, profanity, and crude "humor" overwhelm what little positive message is left, giving The New Guy failing grades in all of our categories. Get the movie review and more. »

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.

At Dizzy’s new school, the students gather on an outside terrace with several levels. Is it significant that each level is a gathering spot for a different group of students i.e. punks, jocks, cowboys, nerds? How clear-cut are those distinctions in a real high school? Do you think that students from various interest groups can interact?

Both Danielle and Dizzy were willing to drop their old friends in the pursuit of popularity. How did it affect them in the end? What would you be willing to give up in order to be accepted by a group of people?
