Video: What was the first R-rated movie you saw (or were allowed to see)?
Submitted by Lisa.
Huh. I always thought this:
was my first R rated movie which I watched with parental permission when I was 8. BUT, it turns out that this:
was the first which I started watching on a regular basis when I was 6 (well, obviously not the 30th Anniversary Special Edition). Honestly, neither did me any harm. Admittedly, my parents didn't know I was watching Blazing Saddles, as that was done at my one aunt and uncle's house, and my aunt really tried to put her foot down, but I was just a little too persistent. And frankly, any harm imposed by watching a Mel Brooks movie at that age was a non-issue as I'd been long exposed to funky senses of humor in my family by the time I started watching it. Plus, I was watching this:
at my grandmother's whenever I went over there at the same time I was watching Blazing Saddles. I was doomed from the beginning I tell you. And, according to Amazon and every other place on the internets where I would expect to find it, this was my first Unrated movie, thank you very much.
