What's Buzzworthy? Embarrassing Movies to Watch With Parents

What's Buzzworthy? Embarrassing Movies to Watch With Parents

Here at the Sugar offices, we recently got to talking about what movies we could watch with our moms for Mother's Day, which inevitably led to a discussion about which movies not to watch with our moms. Someone warned against Because I Said So, which seems like an easy-breezy fun chick flick, but features an uncomfortable scene in which Mandy Moore's character explains to her mother (Diane Keaton) exactly what an orgasm is like.

Another suggestion was The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which Molly made the mistake of sitting down to watch with her future in-laws at their home on Christmas Eve. Also — though it's not a movie, per se — I can advise from experience to avoid Robin Williams' Live On Broadway stand-up special — unless your folks are prone to falling asleep before the end of things. That last drawn-out joke about oral sex is brutal.

Now, fess up: Which movies have you blushed and cringed through in the presence of your mom, dad, grandparents, in-laws, etc.? Using BuzzSugar's cool Buzzworthy bookmarking tool, just find the movies on the Web, bookmark them as Buzzworthy, and tag your choices with the phrase embarrassing movies. (Don't forget: "embarrassing" has two R's!) Then, I'll post some readers' favorites next week.

To find out how to create a Buzzworthy bookmark,

Don't worry: TeamSugar makes it easy to bookmark and capture anything on the Web that you consider "Buzzworthy." If you already have a "That's Fab" button on your browser's tool bar, you can use that to bookmark your Buzzworthy items. If you don't have the TeamSugar bookmarking button on your toolbar, you can learn how to get it by watching this video.

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.

Wedding Crashers! I made the mistake of sitting down with my mom to watch this one.
That's a fact. Some movies are to be watched ALONE.

Love Actually! When my husband and I were visiting my parents for Christmas last year my dad had rented it and I just went on and on about how much I loved the movie and how cute/romantic it was and said we should all watch it together. Well, I completely forgot about the side storyline with the couple who are stand-ins for porn actors. My dad is very conservative and I was just so embarrassed when those parts came on because I had gone on and on about how great it was and here was simulated porn in the movie I thought was so sweet! I still love the movie but I'd never watch it with my parents again!

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"

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!

I'm gonna have to go with Closer. The Julia Roberts/Clive Owen scene where she tells him her big secret has very graphic language and created weird uncomfortable silence at my house.

missbec- same thing here! A totally chill movie and the ONE graphic scene would have my mom or dad walking in asking "WHAT are you watching?!?" Or there were always (when I lived at home) the lazy Sunday afternoons sitting around watching discovery channel and as soon as the animal mating ritual part came on I would bound out of my chair to grab a beverage or snack- anything to get me out of the same room as my parents when the word "ejaculation" etc.. would come up.

The last embarasing movie i ever watched with my parents would be titanic! My parents and I watched it when it just came out in theatres.. soooo embarassing. After that, I vowed never to watch another movie with my parents again, unless it was rated a G or less hahaha

There are many many awkward movies to watch with my parents. lol I'll have to think of some specific examples. But can I just say - parents always walk in at the wrong moments!!! Like, I'll be watching a movie that's pretty tame, but right when my dad walks in the room, there'll be some really graphic dialogue or a sex scene. It's inevitable. That's funny that this is a topic though, cause my sister & I were just talking about this the other day lol
