This week's movie topic is all about Your First R Rated Movie...
Taking a stroll down memory lane this week, we thought we would share that ever precious moment from youth when one sees their first R rated film. Share your story on your blog and be sure to leave your link in the Comments here.
My first R rated movie was probably either Cheech & Chong's Nice Dreams or the original Friday the 13th. Either way, my parents had no idea what I had seen and in both cases thought they were putting me in a nice, safe environment appropriate for my pre-teen age. Oops. I saw Nice Dreams on Cinemax while babysitting for our neighbors. Drugs and three-ways - that's what I remember. I felt extremely dirty for having watched and was paranoid that the parents would somehow be able to tell what channels I had been watching while they were out. I saw Friday the 13th on video at my friend's house one weekend because her older brother wanted to scare us with scenes of slutty teenagers getting shish-kabobbed. It worked. I couldn't walk the 6 houses down the street back to my house in the dark and had to call for a ride. Friday the 13th is one of my favorites to this day. Nice Dreams is not.
I want to say it was Vacation? My aunt took me and my younger siblings to see it in the theater. I remember it being the first movie I saw with boobs in it - briefly, but they were there. Another time, me, my brother and some friends wanted to see All the Right Moves. My mom drove us down there and just intended to buy the tickets for us but they said she had to actually go in and see the movie with us. Since that wasn't the plan, we didn't end up getting to see it.
