    Remember that we left "An Officer and a Gentleman" because of a sex scene....

    YES & there are many, many more i can think of. Pretty Woman for instance, was forbidden by some families because Julia Roberts was acting as a prostitute. GHOSTBUSTERS, just mentioning that movie would cetainly turn a few heads at a table & some killing stares. And of course Ghost, a really nice story, but scorned upon because it promoted immortality of the soul

    When I was about 16, I went to the movie with my mom, aunt and cousin. He was just a few months younger than me. We went to see One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. About half? way through, my aunt stood up haughtily and said we were going. She said it was full of "pornographic language". I was so pissed. Funny thing is, her son spent the next week quoting the most "pornographic" lines!

    Undercover...it could have been me! I was such a goody two-shoes and did point that out about the Disney movies! I wonder how many kids I made miserable!

    I wouldn't even go to the play of "Lion King" on Broadway when I went with some friends for a tour of Bethal!~sigh~

    No, but a bro got upset and walked out because we were watching old Benny Hill episodes!

    A brother told me an elder spoke of the sexuality portrayed in Titanic, and he (the elder) was asked later if he saw the movie. His answer: "even the stones saw that movie".

    I used to laugh inside at the people talking of the twisting of christian history in The Da Vinci Code - guess who was the most offended of that movie? The Catholic church, because it was directed at their beliefs. I for one found the book and the movie a second rate action flick with no factual basis, but that is independent of the JWs doctrine.

    I went to the showing of a movie, rated R at an elder's home. He explained that they knew where the bad parts were and would fast forward through them. Now how did they know where the bad parts were? I knew jws that said that R-rated movies on cable were okay because they took out the bad parts. Now how would a "worldly" company know what jws considered "bad" parts?

    ....good point, Blondie, which brings me to another point: Ya know CleanFlix? It's like Netflix, but takes the dirty words out? My jw family was addicted to it, but it annoyed the crap out of me. When I watch a movie with cuss words, I usually overlook the cussword and just go along with the story/movie. But when there's a noise/bleep or they simply take the dirty word out, but you can still SEE what they just said....doesn't that just ingrain the cuss word even MORE in your head?
