10 Shocking Nude Scenes In Otherwise Family Friendly Films

Warning - all this is suitable for children, as long as they're accompanied by a responsible adult.

Title

Nudity is rife in our films. But while seeing breast or even genitals in an 18 rated film is part for the course, it€™s not really expected in a PG. And yet, as this list will show, there€™'s plenty of incidents when some serious nudity sneaks past the censors and makes it out there for all children to see. The view on nudity has changed a lot as cinema€™s developed as medium. The Hays code in the forties and fifties kept a tight lock on any form of vulgar material, including even basic hints at sex. Slowly things laxed; swearing in blockbusters and increased fantasy violence opened up and with it arse and breast shots became that more acceptable. Some parents still complained, but they're viewed as the grumpy minority. Family rated nudity can prove incredibly awkward; for children of the right age there's nothing worse than watching these movies with their parents. To others it works as a bridge into serious cinema, showing the limitations, or lack thereof, of the medium. Whatever the purpose, it's always surprising to see. So here for you're viewing pleasure are ten moments of ungracious nudity in films just about anyone could see. For the purposes of accuracy, every film on this list received either a 12A/PG-13 or lower in either the US, the UK or in most cases both. I'm a big fan of the current direction film classification has taken - looking at the intent of a movie as what's actually on screen - but even I was shocked by some these entries. What's worth noting about these points is how many of them are from films released decades ago. So often modern cinema is blamed for being overly sexualised, despite it being that way for a long time. But enough with all that. It€™s time to give you all what you came here to see; risque, family friendly nudity. Warning - all this is suitable for children, as long as they're accompanied by a responsible adult.

10. Hackers

Hackers2The Family Friendly Film: Can you remember a time before the Internet? If you€™re too young or the web€™s turned your mind to mush fear not, Hackers may be a good way to refresh your memory. Not to reaffirm a time when a select few could use the Internet you understand, but a time when it was assumed a good idea to produce something this garish. Now don€™t get me wrong, Hackers has an interesting plot at it€™s heart, but to enjoy it you need to remove all possible relation it may have to real technology, something I don't think the filmmakers were going for. The Shocking Nudity: There€™s a couple of moments of discrete boob in Hackers, but one that easily trumps the rest. Angelina Jolie plays Acid Burn (don€™t worry, all the characters have stupid nicknames), who eventually shacks up with protagonist Dade (aka Crash Override aka Zero Cool). Now it€™s not too unexpected for Jolie to get naked - she doesn't just do it often, but explicitly - but at the age of 19 in a PG, it comes as a shock (although she had shockingly stripped off a couple of years before for Cyborg 2). The moment€™s pretty much blink-and-you-miss it, so even with the sexualised content, it€™s not all that surprising it snuck past
