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 the end of this movie, there is a disclaimer that reads, “No rabbits were hurt during the making of this film.” What is this comical statement making reference to? In this movie, who takes the worst beating—the humans or the mammals? Why do we run such an announcement about animals, and yet never make any comment about the treatment of humans during the film making process? Is it more acceptable to you to see violence against people than critters in movies?
