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."


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

Small Soldiers (1998)

"Small Soldiers. It would be a bloodbath!"


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."


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."


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."


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!"


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.

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

People Break Down The Creepiest Facts They Know

Much of the world's known facts are fascinating–some even inspiring.

But there are some facts that are just downright ominous and unsettling to an extent where ignorance is bliss.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
