List Rules Upvote the most uncomfortable films to watch with your mom and dad - only real movies that you might accidentally watch with them!

There are certain types of movies you don't want to watch with your parents: porn, gross-out comedies, home movies and, well, porn (you really don't want any of that). There are times, however, when a seemingly innocuous movie slips into the multiplex or Netflix queue, and you end up seeing an awkward movie with your parents. It happens and it is traumatic.

Just imagine seeing Magic Mike with your mom: there is zero good that can come out of that. She's either going to be horrified by the constant nudity and gyration (which will make you uncomfortable) or she's going to be really into it and you'll have the frightening thought that you might both be thinking about the same guy later that night. It's a lose-lose situation. Be they movies with incest, movies with gratuitous violence, or movies with homo-eroticism, or other bouts of nakedness and sex, these are the weird movies to watch with your parents that you might want to avoid.

What are the weirdest films to watch with your parents? What are some movies you don't want to see with your mom? If you can think of any other movies it would suck to watch with your parents, make sure to add them to this list of awkward choices, just so that other people don't make the mistake of watching Secretary with their folks. You're doing the public a service, friend.
