The goal in repurposing a feature film in a science class is to provide an educational event which is still entertaining.

An instructor would need to judge if the amount of “good” or “bad” science content is appropriate.

Also the instructor needs to provide direction for application of the film during instruction.

 The outcome of using a repurposed feature film should be to increase a student’s experience with certain concepts of science content or to provide a common background from which students can develop.
