Default Your first R rated movie

What was the first R rated movie you saw at home and/ or in theaters? How old were you at the time? (That answer is optional ) And more importantly, what'd you think of the movie?

My first R rated movie at home was Terminator 2 and I was about 4. Coincidentally my first r rated movie at the movies was Terminator 3. Terminator 2 happens to be my favorite movie

How about you?

I'll probably struggle to tell you my first proper R-Rated film, since I watched tons of violent stuff on TV, so chances are it might be The Matrix, Commando or Terminator 2.

As for cinema. I did watch Terminator 3 when that was first released, but that's mainly because the dozy BBFC decided to give that a 12A over here. I ended up sneaking into a few comedies when I was 13/14, watching Step Brothers and Pineapple Express, but I think a proper R rated film (rated 18 over here) that I snuck into was Watchmen, Bruno and Inglorious Basterds.

The first R-rated movie I remember seeing was Revenge of the Nerds when I was 4 or 5 at a friends house. The first R-rated movie I saw in the theater (actually at the drive-in) was a double feature of Lethal Weapon 3 and The Last Boy Scout. Not sure what the first R-rated movie I saw at an actual theater was. I know it was supposed to be Speed when I was 12 but the projector broke during the previews.

I think the first R rated film I seen was geez. That's a hard one. I think it might have been one of those 80's teen sex comedies. I wanna say maybe Porky's or Revenge Of The Nerds. or it could have been the original Robocop film.

I know for sure the first R rated film I saw in theaters was Terminator 2. I was 10 year at the time and my mom took me to see it that summer it came out.

For me, probably was Robocop. At the time, my mom works for a video distribution warehouse, and my d*ckhead dad would often convince her into taking a video or two, so my first r-rated movie was a screener of Robocop. Ok spoilers for a 27 years old movie, but Murphy's death honestly terrified me at the time.

Possibly Die Hard or Terminator 2 (seems to be the same for most with this one), Total Recall or some other Schwarzeneggar or Nicolas Cage film. I had a TV in my room so I was always up late watching films on Channel 5, especially on a friday

Probably The Terminator or Terminator 2, I can't remember exactly. It might've also been Crank, because I remember my parents took me and my brother to see it and they were shocked when they saw Jason Statham doing cocaine on the bathroom floor

I grew up in Germany where the equivalent rating is an 18 and it was Halloween. I was 15 at the time.

I'd tried a couple of years before to get into Carrie and this being the 70s I wore platform shoes I'd borrowed to look taller, but they saw through my deception and turned me away.

I think the first R-rated movie I saw was Rosemary's Baby, in 1968. My father took me to the drive-in and I loved it. It was my first horror movie, and I've been hooked ever since. We used to go see all the John Wayne and Clint Eastwood movies at the drive-in back in the late 60's and early 70's, too. Good times back then.

Same.

Also whichever Indiana Jones movie where that guy rips out the other guys heart was kind of scary as a kid.

I think the first one I saw uncut was JAWS at a friends house on HBO. He was the only kid I knew who had cable. I was about 10. One of my favorite movies to this day.

I am pretty sure the first R movie my parents took me to see at the theater was Hopscotch with Walter Matthau when I was about 12. I watched it recently on Netflix for the first time since and couldn't see why it was R rated. If it was released now it would only be PG13.

It seems like there were lots of movies back in the day that were rated "R", but now are "PG-13" or "PG". Case in point: Barbarella. I saw that at the theater but I could have sworn it was rated "R" back then. Am I totally off-base on that? If it wasn't Barbarella, it was Jaws that was my first "R" rated movie (which is now PG).

First one I saw was probably something edited for television so it wasn't properly R. First fully R film, I don't remember.

First one in the theater was 2010's The Wolfman. Yep, believe it. Was 19 years old.
