What's Buzzworthy: Embarrassing Movies to Watch With Parents

What's Buzzworthy: Embarrassing Movies to Watch With Parents

Last week I invited you all to Buzzworthy the movies you've watched with your parents (or grandparents, or in-laws) that just made you cringe, slump down in your seat, or pretend to yawn, stretch and call it a night. There were some great Buzzworthied DVDs, as well as many comments about embarrassing movie experiences. Check out some of the titles bookmarked by Buzz readers, and then a few "highlights" (if you can call them that!) from the comments section of last week's Buzzworthy challenge.

Wedding Crashers
Selected by gruaig_rua, among other commenters. gruaig_rua says, "The scene where Isla Fisher's character goes under the dinner table......cringe!!!"

Secretary
I couldn't agree more with this selection from Fab_Kitty, who writes "I love this movie, but can't think of any flick more embarrassing to watch with older family members. Be sure Grammy knows this movie isn't about a sweet Doris Day-type heroine!"

More embarrassment if you

Borat
As Mainly Obsessed says, this movie needs no explanation. It's simply NSFWWP (Not Suitable For Watching With Parents).

Eyes Wide Shut
Linda McP has this to say about her pick, "Definitely a Kubrick study-in-humanity film and definitely one that is difficult to watch with anyone...especially Mom and Dad! Keep your eyes wide OPEN and be sure you are watching with someone with whom you can have a philosophical discussion about the merits of the film afterwards."

Now for some classic stories from the comments section:

From shy_baby:
"A couple of months ago I went to the Jamie Foxx concert with my boyfriend and his parents. Talk about UNCOMFORTABLE, Jamie was so explicit with his jokes and his songs were pretty much all about sex. And to top it off he had very scantily clad dancers popping and dropping like strippers. I would have enjoyed the concert if I wasn't so concerned about how my bf's parents were feeling, LOL."

From swwonder:
"Not a movie but Sex and the City.
Oh and I watched the south park movie with my uncle, if you've seen it and heard the first song you'll get the discomfort."

From Carebear144:
"I made the mistake of watching Jarhead with my parents, and the scene where Jake Gyllenhaal is dancing around with only a Santa hat covering him up was excruciating. Also, I watched Monster's Ball with my parents, and the sex scene between Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thorton is uncomfortable enough on its own, but it was unbearable with my parents in the room!"

From spacebear:
"Meet the Fockers was so difficult to watch! Each time I laughed I thought my mom was looking at me like "how does she know that?" and the same was going on vice versa!
Unfaithful was SO uncomfortable. We didn't talk about it and when we got home my sister asked how the movie was and my mom just answered 'it was a lot of humping'"

From sigmaration:
"I once watched American Beauty with my parents... and the sex scene between Carlolyn and the real estate guy was bad enough... but then the phone rang in the middle, my mom paused the DVD, RIGHT DURING THAT SCENE.... so we all stared uncomfortably at a still shot Annette Benning with her legs splayed in the air while she was gettin' it from the real estate guy. For like 20 minutes. It was a nightmare."

I don't really think anything is awkward to watch with my mom. I'd be wayyyyyyyy more uncomfortable with watching certain movies with my dad!

I think watching anything with any possibility of dirty jokes is awkward to watch with my parents, because my mother is very conservative. She even disapproves of some of the cruder jokes on Friends! And that's nothing.

I went to the movies with my mom, my sister, my stepdad, and my 2 stepbrothers (21&22). My mom and my sister went to see one movie but I wanted to see Meet the Fockers so I went with my stepdad and 2 stepbros. It was so uncomfortable. Just being with the step family makes me uncomfortable and then watching Meet The Fockers with them was just ... I don't even know words to describe it. As for my mom, nothing is uncomfortable in front of her. We always watch Sex and the City *We even bought it* And it's mildly uncomfortable in front of my dad, but I got over it. Hehe. Lol.

I'll always remember watching Gods and Monsters at my now ex-boyfriend's conservative parents house. His dad walked in right in the middle of the gas mask scene. The other embarassing one was Love Actually. It's my favorite movie ever and I recommended it to my grandmother, forgetting about the couple who's naked through the whole movie. Ooops.

I remember back in high school when Fear came out, the movie with reese witherspoon and marky mark. My good friend went and saw it opening weekend with her Aunt and Uncle and was mortified when the scene came on where they are on the roller coaster and you can see his hand going under her skirt, etc. I just remember sitting at the lunch table laughing at how embarassed Maggie had been!

oops i didn't mean to say "the theater" twice.
californiagirlx7 californiagirlx7 9 years
I saw Wedding Crashers at the theater with my cousin & her boyfriend in the theater, so when my dad rented it a couple months later, I told him that I couldn't watch it the same room as him because some of those scenes are just too uncomfortable to watch with a parent.

My parents took us to watch Any Given Sunday when we were teenagers, and the scene with the guys in the locker room was so terribly uncomfortable! Bad Santa! When he and the bartender had sex in the car, I wonder why I ever thought I should watch that with my Dad...

Yeesh! For me, it's TV. You just need to watch a couple episodes of The Tudors with your mom to begin to doubt whether Showtime can release a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g that doesn't have graphic sexual content. (I thought it was safe! It was supposed to be history-oriented, honestly!)

I so agree with you Sweet Pea that wrestling scene was :JAWDROP: I don't even think I watched the whole movie, when I was younger we didn't really watch movies except Christian ones, so even now I am like I think I will pass on most of the movies out there now dayz...

I don't think ANYONE should have to sit through Eyes Wide Shut. That is the only movie where I have walked out of the theatre.

SweetPeasMom SweetPeasMom 9 years
Yeah, we watched Borat with my in-law's. I wasn't so embarassed until the next day when we were talking about it and some of the lines came out... :oops: That was bad. Although, the naked wrestling scene caused a few :jawdrop: s and no one was really making eye contact. :rotfl:
