I was 13 years old when me and 2 friends of mine snuck in to see "Stripes". We bought a ticket for a PG movie and just went into the theater where Stripes was playing instead of the movie we paid to see.

When I was in junior high, my parents made the mistake of taking me with them to see "Animal House". Evidentily they thought the R-rating was just for swearing. They expressed their immense embarrassment to each other during the whole ride home and wondered aloud on what the hell they were thinking in bringing me with them to see it.

"Risky Business"

It was my friend's birthday and I guess his mom thought we'd think she was a cool mom for taking a bunch of 12 year olds to an R rated movie. I didn't think the movie was that great.

I LOVED "Beverly Hills Cop" and am glad my parents let me see that one. Eddie Murphy RULED and I just found it and bought it from the Wal-Mart $5.50 bin. (Widescreen/black bars edition, but so what? See Bronson Pinchot before he was sobbing like a baby on Janice Dickinson's shoulders----Are interactive menus and scene selections really "special" features? Can you name a DVD that DOESN'T have those?

I'm quite positive this is my EXACT answer as well!

Either "Alien" or "The Thing," I think. On video at the neighbor's house.

In theaters, I have no idea. I didn't see movies much in theaters when I was a kid, so by the time I did, seeing an R movie probably wasn't a big deal.

It was either Robocop or Predator in the theater, I think. That was a long time back...

My dad let me watch A Nightmare on Elm Street (which we taped off HBO) when I was five.

I owe my love of horror movies to my dad.

Robocop, off of a recording my parents made from broadcast or maybe cable television.

And I didn't realize until about a year ago that the version I'd originally seen was heavily edited for violence. I rented it from my Blockbuster store a little while back and was all, "I didn't remember the dude having toxic waste dumped on him and having his skin start dripping off his body!" Or the part where another dude, Boddicker I think, gets Robocop's metal spike driven through his skull. Vicious.

Some movie called House, when I was maybe 5. My parents never minded that stuff. Except for Nightmare on Elmstreet, exhausted every bit of fun one could dream of with a 4 year old baby sister on those movies.

It was showing as part of a double feature at a drive-in, and it was already pretty long itself. My dad took me to that same double feature probably 10 times because our house was being remodeled or fumigated or something, and we needed to be out of the house. Unfortunately, I was about 4 at the time, and a big fan of The Empire Strikes Back. And, well, in Ragtime there are some guys in white outfits and white hoods that to a four year old look a lot like the long draping white stormtrooper headpieces in the attack scenes on Hoth. Unfortunately, the guys in Ragtime are klansmen. Thus, not really knowing what was going on, I cheered for the klansmen when they showed up, thinking that they were Imperial Stormtroopers somehow in this old-timey movie. My dad got me to stop doing that by the fourth screening or so, but I know that he thanked God that we were in a closed-up car in a drive-in and not in a regular theater where scores of northern Californians would glower at my him, wondering what sort of monster raises a kid who cheers audibly when klansmen hit the screen.

I should also note that even though I was about four, I distinctly remember Elizabeth McGovern getting naked. God, she was hot.

The Shining, when I was about 10. My me and my sisters were going to sleep over at my cousins house and my Aunt got drunk and turned it over to HBO, only me and her were awake at this time of the night. Scared the living crap out of me!

Conan the Barbarian. When your first image of people fornicating is a muscle-bound warrior giving it to a woman who turns into a demon and flies away, it can mess you up for awhile. Years of therapy....

Caddyshack. Mom and Dad took the whole fam (I was 10, my younger brothers were 8 and 5). They were pretty liberal about R rated comedies. It took awhile, but eventually the local doubleplex (I grew up out in the sticks) let our parents pay for us to see R-rated flicks and not see them with us (such as Porky's). Good times.

I'm sure this wasn't the first one I saw, but the first I remember is Brian DePalma's "Body Double."

I'd have to say it was one of the Bruce Lee movies (if they were R) or a double feature at the drive in with them. We used to go to the drive in a lot as teens and smoke the evil weed and enjoy tracers off Bruce's hands, So if Fists of Fury or Enter The Dragon or Chinese Connection are R, then that was it.

yeah- they all were, pretty much.

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in 1975, with the family, at the Canyon Drive-In in Beaverton, Oregon.

In thinking about it today, I'm surprised at how much of that movie I understood (and enjoyed) at the age of 9.

Of course, that movie wouldn't have gotten an "R" rating today.
