The Pacifier

Navy S.E.A.L. Shane Wolfe (Vin Diesel), has confidently handled many dangerous missions, but he's about to face his most difficult assignment yet: Protecting the lives of five children.

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.

Movies often use stereotypes in order to save time on character development and get into the story. How are school authorities, teens and ethnic groups portrayed in this film? What are the problems with using this approach?

How is conflict resolution depicted in this film? In what ways do the characters successfully deal with disputes? What options do you consider when dealing with difficult people?
