A recent study found that kids who watched television with their folks were almost four times as likely to be frightened by scary programs
as those who viewed alone. Apparently seeing Mom get scared during "Sleepaway Party III" makes it even more horrifying for the kids in the house.
But if watching scary movies with Mom and Dad makes them even scarier, why doesn't watching sexy movies the rents make them even sexier? Oh, that's right, because it's completely mortifying to watch anything even slightly erotic in the same room with the people who gave birth to you.
I offered to go scoop some ice cream for the whole fam when the Kelly McGinnis/Tom Cruise love scene in "Top Gun" came on. I still get skeeved out when I see that super-tame scene. It's like I'll always be 12. I also watched "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka" with my parents and grandparents. They did not appreciate the "sophisticated" humor of the Wayans brothers. Grandma referred to it as "asinine."
"Jerry Maguire." That 10-second wall-humping scene -- WHY DIDN'T ANYONE WARN ME?
My grandma recommended a movie to my mom, and we rented it and watched it. I don't remember what the name of it was, but it was filled with lesbian sex scenes. So it was not only embarrassing because I was trapped in a room with my mom and some lesbian sex, but also because I knew that my grandma had watched it and liked it.
My mom and I went to go see "Innerspace" and she thought for some reason that when Martin Short and Meg Ryan kissed (in order to transmit tiny Dennis Quaid through their spit), they were having sex. She whispered really loudly, "THEY'RE HAVING INTERCOURSE," and somebody in the theater turned around and went, "NO THEY AREN'T."
Have you ever watched something with the fam you wished you hadn't?
