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 violence in this film is intended to be funny, however it frequently targets another person with an intent to harm or embarrass. How does this type of violence compare with other movies where similar pratfalls occur, but they are due to a person’s clumsy manner or foolishness? What types of violence do you think young children may be tempted to mimic?

How are adoption and foster care portrayed in this movie? Would most children prefer to find a loving home rather than live in an orphanage?
