    one of my worst awkward moment with my parents. we were all watching Black Swan, coz the reviews are great , blah blah. that scene with Mila and Natalie.

    i just cringe and everyone went quite and it was so awkward, definitely not something that you will watch with your nana or anyone from your family, hahaha

    what other movies that you shouldn't watch with your family or parents? lol

    "American Gigolo" with Richard Gere. That scene where he does a full frontal I remember so well, watching it on HBO in 81 or so when I was a teen, and wanting SOOO bad to look at him and trying to without letting my mom see me looking at him. I was trying to be nonchalant.

    My parents wanted to see *Brokeback Mountain! in 2007.... Lol and I was like *all right, seeing it again for the 3rd time! Then the scene when Heath f*** Jake in the tent, they were like, OMG OMG that's how gay guys do it icon_eek.gif hahahahaha! Anyway, they were won over in the end by the tragic ending! I was like, damn that was kinda awkward but great, they kinda warm up ever since! icon_cool.gif

    Years ago I went to see "Flirting with Disaster" with my grandmother. It was supposed to be funny. It had Mary Tyler Moore in it --- and Stiller and Meara's talented son Ben....

    Then MTM bared her boob, I slumped back in my seat in embarrassment, and Grandma muttered that this was "pornography. "

    I made my parents watch 'Torch Song Trilogy' with me, at home on video, I had seen the movie many times. They were dead silent throughout, their being embarrassed became almost palpable in my living room and I kept repeating a mantra in my head " this is good for them, this is good for them".

    Ugh. That was my last education effort. They came around by themselves.

    I often took mom to gay movies at Gateway in Lauderdale.

    Yes, even this one...

    Mom was a tremendous reader of novels. I've never known another person to read so many. I'm pretty sure there wasn't much about the gay world that she didn't already know.

    Dogma. They were bothered by all of the profanity. I didn't even notice it when I watched it.

    I remember proudly treating my parents to what I thought was the perfect film for them, "An Officer and a Gentleman" (love story for her! military for him!) and cringing when Richard Gere bent down naked from the bed to tie his shoes (or some such). So tame by today's standards!

    But not nearly as embarrassing than about a decade later when I took an aunt, who that week was forced given a personal financial crisis to relocate from Florida to New York to move in with her sister and take a job as a secretary, to an off-Broadway play in the East Village called "Secretaries." All I knew about the plot was that it was about secretaries taking revenge upon their bosses. I expected "9 to 5" and instead got experimental theatre. I practically dove under the seat during the scene where all the secretaries, cycling simultaneously, reached under their skirts, pulled out their bloody tampons and dipped them into their teacups of hot water as part of a sapphic ritual - before they axe-murdered their male bosses, natch.

    I haven't taken an older relative to a film or show since.

    My parents went to see this when they found out I was gay, without me. No wonder they were so worried, lol. Start it at 1:19.
