FIRST R-RATED MOVIE YOU EVER SAW IN THEATERS📂

  1. Black Hawk Down
    My Dad took me and a friend to see it—we were 14, and I wasn't the type to sneak into movies. I liked war movies and Josh Hartnett. Dad liked war movies and the chance for interesting discussion.
  2. Black Swan
    I was 13 and took ballet

  3. Taking Woodstock
    It was possibly the worst movie I've ever seen. Me @lesleyann and our two friends were the only ones in the theater, we sat on the floor in the front, just cuz, and boredom, and maybe we were inspired to be free-spirited rebellious youths, idk.

  4. Lethal Weapon 2
    My friend and a I bought tickets to a PG movie and snuck in. We did this for most of the high-profile Rs that summer, but LW2 was the first.

  5. Dangerous Minds
    This is really going to age me--I saw it in the theater when I was a Junior in high school. It spawned the massive Coolio hit Gangsta's Paradise. 💗

  6. Total Recall
    My Nana took me when I was around 10 years old OBVIOUSLY having no clue what this movie was about and it was one of the greatest theater experiences of my life- the crowd was very hype and into the movie! I love my Nana so much...

  7. Universal Soldier
    There was probably one before this, but this is the first one I can remember theatrically. I was 7, my sister had a crush on Jean-Claude and it was at the dollar theater because that was what a teenager could afford for two. I wish I was reporting Terminator 2 instead, but such is life. I found this movie cool as fuck at 7, not so much now.

  8. There's Something About Mary
    Definitely snuck into this on opening night with a few friends at Star Theaters in Roseville, Michigan. It was a packed house. I don't think I knew it was possible to laugh that much at a movie.

  9. 300
    In IMAX and it didn't disappoint. I think I was 14 and my friend's cousin took us, he was only like 22. I think I told my parents I was seeing Wild Hogs with Tim Allen and I have no idea why they believed me.

  10. The Patriot
    I was 10 😳. I was the youngest and my dad wanted to see it, so he brought me along. It was pretty violent!

  11. The English Patient
    I was 12 and my friend's dad let us go while he went to see a different movie with her younger sister. We probably thought we were cool because we were going to a rated R movie without sneaking in, but it was the worst. We both hated it. My friend and I talked and half heartedly tried to pay attention. I counted the ceiling tiles, the seats, and the runner lights. I haven't seen it since and it still ranks as one of the worst movies I've seen in the theater.

  12. The Passion of The Christ
    Thanks, mom.

  13. Burn After Reading
    I was 14 and saw this with my parents. The dildo chair scene was as uncomfortable as you'd think it would be.

  14. Porky's
    Bought tickets to Clash of the Titans. It was a packed house so they started checking tickets, but my friend and I were deep in the middle so they never got to us. The crowd went insane for the movie and I laughed so hard my sides ached.

  15. The Ugly Truth
    Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl. I was 14 and very sheltered. I went with my mom. It scared me.

  17. An Officer and a Gentleman
    Pretty boring for a six year old.

  18. The Matrix Reloaded
    I was 8. My second was The Matrix Revolutions that same year. I loved them both at the time, but I now know my mistake.
