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.

The actors who played the children Tia and Tony (Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann) in Escape to Witch Mountain, make appearances in this film as well. Watch for Seth and Sara’s meeting with Tina, the waitress, and Sheriff Antony.

How does the interaction between Jack and the teens help change their perceptions of one another? Why is it easier to misjudge someone you don’t know? Do you think it is likely that a species from another planet would be similar to us, or the type of creatures Hollywood has created?

What evidence is there that Jack is trying to change his life for the better? What impact did his childhood have on his decisions in life? What other characters experience positive improvements in their lives?
