    I can vividly recall being taken with my parents to see Frankenstein. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0109836/

    My mom covered my eyes the entire time. It came out in '94 so I guess I was 7-years-old. I have no idea why they took me.

    The Matrix Reloaded.
    It was my 17th birthday. I lived a sheltered live, but R-Rated movies were watched by the boatload at friends houses.

    Same here! Except it was like, a month after my 17th birthday.

    I never did the whole "buy tickets to whatever Adam Sandler movie is playing and sneak into the R-rated movie you want to see" gambit, but I know that people obviously do it. How else could you explain Wild Hogs making $35 million the same week that 300 came out? Or Ghost Rider making $25 million the same week that Reno 911: Miami came out?

    No way!
    I snuck into a movie once, but I didn't buy a ticket for something else first. I saw Mr. and Mrs Smith with a group of friends and when the movie was over I said "that sucked" and asked if anyone wanted to see Batman Begins to even out the cost of the ticket. The girls who invited us out went home and the guys snuck into Batman and had the best time ever.

    I honestly don't remember...

    I think it was Blood Work with Clint Eastwood, I could be totally wrong though.

    Kill Bill, Vol 2

    I was 13, and I went with my dad. You know, because we both loved Vol 1, and a bunch of the other Tarantino movies. I had the option of seeing Vol 1 in theaters, but I didn't. I should've.

    Shortly after that, my dad decided I was alright getting M rated games, so he got me San Andreas. Considering that's probably one of the best games ever made by human hands, I'd say he made a good choice.

    great movie! nice soundtrack, too.

    I remember watching a bunch of 80s horror movies on VHS, like Freddy Krueger and Silent Night, Deadly Night. Cheesy stuff, I loved it. Saw the Chucky movies. Was Pretty Woman R Rated? I got in trouble in school for calling a girl I had a crush on a prostitute during recess. All I was really saying was she was a pretty woman, like the movie :(
    because it turns out pretty good for that prostitute...
    Since it was a private, christian school the principal (yep) blamed my mother more than me, for allowing me to view such filth.

    seriously, I didn't mean she was an actual prostitute. And so began the entire misunderstood saga that i call life.

    Eyes Wide Shut. I sneaked out of the house when I was 11 and boy did I regret going to see that movie. The creepy piano riff haunts my dreams to this day.

    uhmm.. I think mine had to be The Players Club w/ my brother (12 yrs older than I am).

    I got all the jokes, but couldn't rightfully laugh out of fear and being too busy trying to suppress boner.

    I seem to remember leaving my movie to go to the bathroom and peaked into the Scream movie for a few minutes. I didn't watch it all though.

    The first Rated R movie I watched in my house was childsplay. I really shouldn't have watched it being so young. in fact I was told to go to sleep but I just poked my head out my door in the hallway and watched it from there. :erm:

    After my father passed away when I was little I had a "Big Brother". He took me to see Seven. It was intense and awesome but afterwards he was like "oh shit, don't tell your mom we saw that" haha

    I don't think he was expecting it to be THAT disturbing. It's not like there was the internet back then to do a bit of research. We just had TV spots to go on.
