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 the property damage seem less important since there are no consequences shown for it? How would employers likely view these men’s actions when it comes to misusing company property and personnel?

How are both men dishonest with Lauren? What do you think about her decision to use sexual relations as a tiebreaker? Should that be the ultimate deciding factor in a long-term relationship? Which one of the men kept his gentlemen’s promise? What does that say about him? What does it say about the other man? What are the most important qualities when it comes to building trust in a relationship?

Why might this film have more appeal to women than men? How does a female fantasy film differ from a male fantasy film?
