People Debate Which Kids' Movies They'd Love To See An R-Rated Version Of
20th Century Fox

Those of you who have seen Home Alone – and honestly, who hasn't at this point – know that Kevin McCallister was sick in the head. I mean, he really went overboard, didn't he? His ideas were straight out of a horror film. He could have taught some tricks of the trade to Jigsaw, wouldn't you agree?

Next time you watch those films, consider why his awful parents didn't send his ass to a child psychologist.

But Home Alone isn't the only kids movie that would benefit from a more adult version. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Kevvv_Y asked the online community,

"If you could make one kids movie R rated which movie would you choose?"

Home Alone (1990)

"Home Alone would be pretty intense."

Jojo056123

Pretty sure an R-rated version of this film would just be called Saw.

Small Soldiers (1998)

"Small Soldiers. It would be a bloodbath!"

PissoffCoDfan

It was already pretty intense. The spliced Barbies they were mass producing in the last act was actual crazy sh*t.

Zootopia (2016)

"I feel like Zootopia was going down that path already. Not in a furry way per say, but more of a "drugged up predators are murdering people" way."

Yeah, if you really think about the plot of the movie, this perfectly breaks down how dark the film actually was.

Coraline (2009)

"Coraline. Let’s make it darker, by a lot."

[deleted]

Noooo please don't. It was already scary enough!

Antz (1998)

"Antz. Its already primed up for it with the violence it has. It's Starship Troopers for kids."

[deleted]

Ah yes, this movie was wilder than it had any right to be. A fine choice.

Scooby-Doo (2002)

"The live action Scooby Doo because it was originally written by James Gunn to be a Rated R film. Shaggy and Scooby were supposed to hotbox the Mystery Machine and Velma and Daphne would’ve made out. Would’ve been 10/10."

So basically that scene from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back?

Matilda (1996)

"Matilda. If it’s rated R it’s just Carrie."

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)

"Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. It would improve the film if the Phantasm got to kill people with blades rather than PGing everyone to death."

SYLOH

You wouldn't even need to be R for that.

You'd just need to not be an animated movie from the '90s that's technically for kids.

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

"The Nightmare Before Christmas. You could add 15-20 minutes of R-rated scenes to the original material, then it'd be a full hour and a half long!"

boomdart

A good choice! It's already an excellent candidate.

The Lion King (1994)

"The Lion King. Give me all of the brutality of animals fighting and ripping each other apart to slowly eat each other alive."

Oh, that's the reason?

Does Simba and Nala's relationship ring any bells?

Sorry to ruin your childhoods. Or... better yet, consider that we're improving them.

Some things are deceptively simple.

Oh, skydiving? That's easy.

Love yourself? Simple.

Who can't open a can of pickles?

ME! ME! That's who. I can't do any of the above simply.

It's all hard. And you know it too.

It's just designed to" look" easy only to bamboozle us.

Approach everything as a burden and live by a motto...

People Explain Which Movies They Just Did Not Understand At All

Art is subjective.

As much as movies are universally loved, there are some that leave a big question mark.

Sometimes films, plots, and characters make no sense. AT ALL.

And that is uncomfortable for the ego.

Example...

Howard's End.

Is it art?

Am I just dumb?

Why do I care?

People Describe The Fastest They've Ever Seen A Coworker Get Fired

They say it's hard for workers to get fired from their jobs. That is unless, of course, the employee is self-sabotaging and has nothing at stake.

While there are many unemployed people desperately looking for work, there are apparently just as many of those who want nothing more than to leave a situation that makes them miserable, despite having a steady paycheck.

A trial can hinge on one simple piece of information.

All it could take for a suspect to walk free or go to jail for the rest of their lives is one single fact.

With this in mind, some lawyers will do their best to make sure that this information is buried, legally and ethically one hopes, and will never be brought up in trial.

However, for this to happen, Lawyers will still need to know this piece of information from their clients, as it otherwise could be brought up by the prosecution, effectively ending the case.
