I can't remember the first movie on video or tv that I may have watched. But I think my first R-rated movie in the theater was "Born on the 4th of July". I think I saw it with my mom and sisters. I barely remember it except for the times my eyes would be covered when there was female nakedness on the screen :(

I think I was 11 when I talked my grandfather into taking me to Animal House. All I remember afterwards was his telling me not to tell my Mom about the nudity.

My parents never made a big deal about R-rated movies, so I can honestly not remember the first one I saw. It might have been Terminator...although I do remember not being allowed to see the sex scene as a youngster.

Being a child of the 80's, it had to have either been Porky's or Revenge of the Nerds. My parents didn't know about it though.

I'm pretty sure it was one of the Friday the 13th movies. I can't remember which one, but I was at a friend's house and his mom thought she'd be 'cool' if she rented it for us.

The only other one it might be would be Robocop. I remember being pretty young when we saw it. The first time I saw Robocop it scared the shit out of me. I still can't watch Family Guy's version of that two-legged gun-arm thing saying "Second Warning: Present Hall Pass" without getting seriously freaked out.

The memory is a bit fuzzy on this...I believe it was almost like Prophet. One of the Friday the 13th movies, Robocop, or finally I think officially was Terminator 2.

A movie called TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS. It was rated R; and my parents, who took me and my brother to see this (we were 10 and 8 respecively, and on vacation in Florida) both agreed that it should have been PG-13 at best.

EDIT: It was rated AA in Canada.

Yeah. "juuuust a little outside" is one of the greatest one liners in a sports movie.

I remember during the Buena Vista Social Club movie, they were interviewing some dessicated old trumpet player or something, and he had a tiny Santeria-esque deity figurine on a miniature altar somewhere in the background. The first thing I thought was, "Hey, that's that thing Cerrano worships." Just then, my friend leans into me and says, far too loud:

"Up yer butt, Jobu."

I thought I was going to choke to death.

Also corrected the "outside" call. I know this 'cause Tom Hamilton does that ALL THE TIME. Which I love, and my wife hates. :)

Either M*A*S*H, Beverly Hills Cop, or Stripes.

Could have also been one of the late night Cinemax movies...

My father actually took me to see the latter. I was 9, and I'm willing to bet money he knew nothing of the closed-circuit camera scene beforehand. Although there was no big deal made of it afterwards.

I think that was the 2nd R-movie I saw in the theater. The first was "Easy Money".

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie. No interactive menus. The main menu IS the scene selection screen.

This happened while standing in line at a theater called Twin Bays 4. It's no longer there. It closed around 1990 I believe when other theaters were making the screens smaller and trying to fit as many theaters as possible under one roof. It's a shame because I have so many fond memories of that place. It was my mecca, you could say...

---
Dad: "No, we're not taking him to this one, he can go see SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON with his brother. This movie isn't supposed to be seen by an seven year old!"

Mom: "Lou, let him go see it. He watches that crap on Creature Feature every week and this is just a little stronger then that."

Me: "Yeah Dad, mom wants me to see it!"

Dad: "FINE, if he has nightmares or wets his pants, it's all because of you and Bob Ross."
---

Bob Ross was/is a film reviewer for the Tampa Tribune. The movie received ZERO stars, which, according to my mom, meant it would be GREAT.

My mom loved horror films. The worse a critic said they were, the better the movie was likely to be.

The year was 1979 and the movie was Lucio Fulci's ZOMBIE.

I had no nightmares or wetting of pants.

My dad, however, left during the scene where a zombie attacks a shark and takes a bite out of it. He went on to watch Swiss Family Robinson with my brother.

My dad was a pussy.

Good times... good times.

I'm not really sure what the first R rated movie I saw was, I thought it was Red Dawn because at the time it was in the Guiness Book of World Records for most deaths in a movie, but when I looked it up it turns out it was PG 13, in fact it was the first movie to get the PG 13 rating.
