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 movie’s makers encourage viewers to tweet their favorite movie line. Luckily the script is made up of easily quotable quips. How is the dialogue in this movie suitable for tweeters? What demographic group is this script aimed at? What other marketing ploys does the film use to attract young audience members?

How is decisive action by the U.S. government hampered by internal squabbling between departments such as the FBI, CIA and Secret Service?

How does this script use humor to ease the intensity of the action? Does it work?
