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.

Does an aging population of Yuppies make a film about older characters more likely to find an audience? What opportunities do these scripts give to aging actors? What talents and experience do these performers bring to the big screen?

Sarah proves to be the weakest link in this foursome. How does she grow in her capacity to contribute to the team? How does her innocence about the danger they are facing make her more eager to be involved?

How does this film’s comedic attitude make the storyline feel less serious? Is there danger in showing these kinds of violent depictions in a humorous way? Would this storyline have played as well if it took itself very seriously?
