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.

How does Carl and Molly’s marriage affect the relationship between Carl and Dupree? What kind of relationship does Carl’s friend Neil appear to have with this wife Annie? Is it necessary to curtail some outside activities with previous friends once a person is married?

How does Mr. Thompson attempt to sabotage Molly and Carl’s marriage? How can parents’ actions either help or hinder their children to establish good marriages? Why is Carl reluctant to open up to Molly about the events at work?

How does this film serve as a star vehicle for Owen Wilson? Is his character the kind of person you would willingly turn your couch over to? Although Dupree is portrayed as a sex-seeking slacker, how does the film sweeten up his persona and make him the hero?
