Times change, attitudes change, and things that were acceptable not long ago are now viewed with contempt and make people cringe.
And that goes for movies too!
Let’s hear from the folks on AskReddit what movies from the past they think are hard to watch today because of their hideous humor.
“Blank check, where the adult FBI agent kisses a ten-year-old boy.”
“Big with Tom Hanks.
A child becomes an adult with magic and sleeps with a woman (it’s implied).
Another kid says, “Who the hell do you think you are?!”.
I think there are at least two “f**ks” in this PG movie where a kid fucks a woman.”
“40 days and 40 nights.
The guy literally gets banged towards the end and his girlfriend comes in after he’s banged, but it’s done in a humorous way and then he has to apologize to the girlfriend because she suggests he ‘cheated’ on her.
The whole thing really disgusted me.”
Nadia would have wanted Jim’s head on a stick.”
Like…but you thought she was a student…”
“Revenge of the nerds.
The film factory ‘heroes’ film at the girls’ house to watch them undress and shower, they sell nude pictures of them, and the lead ‘hero’ r**s a girl who in turn falls in love with him because he good at s*** (err, really?). At least neither the token gay (who doubles as the token black) nor the token asian aren’t stereotypical… oh wait.
Let’s not forget that the Omega Mu sorority is full of “fat and ugly” girls, but luckily the nerdy boys end up getting the hot girls!
What’s not to love about that?”
The ‘hot guy’ shoves his cheerleading girlfriend on the h***ny nerd after she blacks out or passes out while drunk.
The nerd is implied to r** her off-screen. But when she wakes up the next morning, of course, instead of getting upset, she has learned a valuable lesson.”
Guy takes some tanning pills to look black so he can get into college.”
“My fiancé and I tried to watch “According to Jim” on Disney+.
It’s literally just a guy who treats his wife like trash. Stopped watching after about 3 episodes.”
“The 40-year-old virgin.
What a great cute funny serious movie for me in so many ways but the fact that there is this WHOOOLLLE SCENE where all the guys conspire to find the dirtiest women to go with Being able to take it home is pretty unbearable now.
For example, how is it considered funny that he should capture a woman who can’t even walk straight. Seeing all these brothers talk about it like sport just makes me sick because it’s super real.”
“I saw Weird Science a few weeks ago.
Grown woman s**ty banging not one, but two high school students.”
Three guys pretend to be girls to get lodging at a fraternity house after being kicked out of their fraternity. The joke is that the sorority is filled with “ugly” girls, so they fit in.
From memory, the geeky brother of one of the sorority students fucks him while he’s unconscious thinking he’s fucking a girl. Brags about it and then is universally embarrassed when her identity is revealed.”
