Watching movies with your mom is a great idea. But these are 8 movies not to watch with her.
Magic Mike 2012
This is a no-brainer. Really, who watches a movie about strippers with their mother? I guess the only exception might be if you were having a bachelorette party before a wedding.
Fifty Shades of Grey 2015
This is right up there with Magic Mike. Any woman who has read the Fifty Shades of Grey books knows how risque they are. Usually not a movie you want to watch with the woman who told you not to have sex before you were married.
Eyes Wide Shut 1999
Your mom might want to watch it if she’s a huge Tom Cruise fan, but definitely not a good idea. This movie is full of sex parties and the very seedy underground. Plus, it’s nearly 3 hours long. Not worth it.
Gone Girl 2014
It’s possible your mom has read the book so she’ll want to see the movie. If so, there are three scenes you’ll want to avoid watching with her. Get a glass of water, go to the bathroom, whateverh you have to go give her 5 minutes or so and you’ll be fine.
Why shouldn’t you watch this with your mom? Well, first of all, if she’s a Richard Gere fan he’s a real jerk in the movie. Second of all, Diane Lane’s performance in it is a little more than racy. So skip it and opt for First Knight instead.
Boogie Nights 1997
You might say this is the movie that talks about Fifty Shades of Grey before it became a movie. It’s all about the adult film industry. You wouldn’t watch a porn with your mom, so why would you watch a movie about making porn with her?
This is especially one to skip if you watched that show with Zach, Kelly, Slater, and others when you were growing up. Remember Jessie, the earth loving girl on Saved by the Bell? Yeah, she’s not very conservative in this movie, which is why it’s a good one to skip.
Basic Instinct 1992
This famous Sharon Stone/Michael Douglas movie is a crime drama, but that’s not all. There are many scenes that may raise some eyebrows. The one that the movie is best known for is the one where she’s being interrogated and mentions that she loves to go commando.
