Best Rated R Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Godfather
2 Ted

Its great and who doesn't like a psycho fat boy and his dad trying to take a real life talking teddy bear

This is a sad, sad list. - BeatlesFan1964

3 The Hangover
4 The Passion of the Christ

Even if you're Christian, you should probably wait a little while till your kids are old enough to handle it

Sad but great film

Roger Ebert thought the movie should've been rated NC-17 because of how graphically brutal it was and that parents should never take their kids to see it.

An NC-17 rating is even harsher than an R rating.

5 Deadpool

Best r movie ever

Best ever


6 The Shawshank Redemption

The Matrix Revolutions and Deadpool are seriously above the greatest movie of all time? - jack2244

Not only should it be the #1 movie but also the #1 R-rated movie - jack2244

It is finally at number 2, now just get it one number higher - jack2244

The Matrix Reloaded is seriously ahead of this? - jack2244
