Time Out

Mom & Dad — you gotta love ’em. But there are some things you just can’t share or enjoy with them around, ya know? Like some of your favorite flicks (i.e. Breaking Dawn — Part I). As fun as it could be to spend the evening at a movie theater with your parents, or even take in a film at home together, everything could turn outright awkward and uncomfortable when certain situations present themselves on-screen.

To further prove it to you, here are 13 of the many rando movies teens should NEVER, ever watch with their parents in the same room:

Breaking Dawn — Part 1

Even if your mama's into the saga, watching Edward, uhh... break the bed alongside a parent is traumatizing.

From Jack drawing Rose's entire body to the steamy car scene, it doesn't exactly make for a familial experience.

Spring Breakers

Drugs, alcohol, sex, guns — it's every parent's worst nightmare. Watch it with one of them, and you'll be getting lectures all night long.

This is the End

It's LOL funny, but we're almost afraid to laugh when Mom or Dad's around.

The Hangover

What would they say about Ken Jeong putting his naked, umm, area in Bradley Cooper's face?

The Cabin in the Woods

Sex scenes are already awk when you're watching it with family, but the girl in this one dies DURING it. Too much to handle.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Rape. That should explain it all.

Can't Hardly Wait

Or, basically, any party film.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Why, WHY does Jason Segel have to be naked all the time? And full frontal, too.

TIP: Never watch anything involving Sacha Baron Cohen with your parents. Except for Les Miserables.

She's All That

OMG, pube pizza. We can't.

Black Swan

Even disregarding their love scene, Mila Kunis & Natalie Portman made sure this would be one of the worst flicks to watch with others.

    omg this is the end is the best movie but it is so true I could barley laugh with my mom watching

  • Jessica C.

    THANK YOU!!! I was planning to watch Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Titanic (two of my absolute favorites) with my parents, but… I would probably end up getting a 3-hour lecture from my mom… I’ll just tell them that I can’t find the DVDs or something…XD

  • Weston

    I’m sorry but since most of these movies are rated R I would say “teens” don’t have a choice but to watch them with their parents.

    • Jake

      Well, considering that 17-year-olds can legally see a rated R movie in theaters, at least some “teens” can see those films without a parent. I’m sure many teens would have the choice to watch an R-rated film at a friend’s house, or online — parents present or not. Or maybe a teenager’s parents recognizes that their teen is not a small child, and can view mature content without mommy or daddy there

  • Myrthe

    since when is the girl with the dragon tattoo romantic …

    • Mellie

      It’s not up there because it’s romantic. It’s awkward to watch with parents because there are about 6 rape scenes. It’s pretty bad. I would know because I watched it with my mom, both of us completely oblivious to what was about to happen.

  • Me

    “Dad, why my ding ding is like this?”

  • Luke

    OMG what about Wolf of The Wall Street

  • Smosh


  • Carl R

    The moment when sex becomes more of a taboo than violence we as a society are lost.

  • The cool one

    I saw borat with my mom and dad. They invited me to it.

    • Andy_Sean

      God bless you!

  • Khomotjo mokgoba

    I won’t watch any movie with my parents
