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.

What do you think the life of a real CIA agent is like? Do you think they would casually kill people as depicted in this film? (Can you imagine what those shooting sprees would look like on the nightly news if they did!) To learn more about the CIA and how you can get a job there, check this page and the links that are within it: https://www.cia.gov/kids-page/6-12th-grade

How do you feel about the mix of violence and comedy in this film? Does the comedy help to make the violence less disturbing? Does the violence make the comedy less funny? Should these two styles, with opposing emotional responses, be combined?
