Video: What was the first R-rated movie you saw (or were allowed to see)?
Submitted by Lisa.
They figured we would just fall asleep. I didn't. I still remember being very disturbed by the ending, especially since I wasn't able to anticipate it.
The ironic part is that my parents were pretty strict in terms of what we were allowed to watch. I still remember my Aunt only letting us see the scene in The Blues Brothers where the nun wacks them with a ruler for swearing because she thought it was something our mother would frown upon us seeing (it was on HBO and we were staying with her for the summer – we were probably 12 and 13 by this point). We were allowed to watch that one scene and then banished outside until the movie was over.
My sister and I did get into see Porky's 2 when I was 15 and she was 14. To be fair it was playing with another movie that was PG that we had actually gone there to see – it was one of those discount theatres that showed two movies that had been out for a while for two dollars. I believe my sister met me after school and I was still wearing my uniform when we went. Funny how I can't remember what the other movie was.
