Movies To Watch Alone
1) The Dreamers
The dreamers is the story of an American student studying in Paris around 1968. He befriends brother-sister duo and started living with them. He also gets romantically involved with Isabelle. While this was going there were students riot in Paris. There are many steamy scenes (full nudity) which makes it a big no-no when it comes to watching this movie with your parents.

3) The Wolf of wall street
The Wolf of the wall street is the real-life story of Jordan Belfort. He was a small broker and he becomes a millionaire by selling penny stocks and scamming people. This legendary movie is very funny and true to life and portrays what goes on the wall street. There is a lot of nudity, sex, violence, harsh language, and drugs.
This movie is directed by academy award winning director Martin Scorsese. Leonardo Dicaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, and Kyle Chandler are in the leading role. The Wolf of Wall Street has an amazing story along with all those things. You definitely want to watch this alone.
4) American Pie ( Series )
Majority of people have heard about the American Pie series. The whole series revolves around students and how they deal with it. Losing their virginity, having sex, getting into awkward situations, exploring college life, and all that stuff. American Pie series are good movies if you want to see something light and funny.
There is a lot of nudity involved in the whole series. The ones with the original cast is still a masterpiece and will bring you some nostalgia. This is one of the Hollywood movies you should watch alone.
5) American Beauty
American beauty is an academy award winning movie. This is a story of a middle-aged man who gets involved with his daughter’s best friend. Starring Kevin Spacey, Mira Suvari, Annette Bening, and Wes Bentley this is one movie you don’t want to miss.
Although there isn’t that much nudity the story is worth watching. American Beauty is directed by Sam Medes.
6) Basic Instinct
Basic Instinct the go-to movie if you are a fan of thriller, crime and mystery genre. This is famous for police interrogation scene of Sharon Stone when she parts her legs. Besides an amazing story, this movie has a lot of steamy scenes, nudity, and gore. Starring Michael Douglas, Sharon Stone, and George Dzundza in the leading roles.
As per Michael Douglas, he accepted the part for the sole reason of sex in the movie. In the late 80s and 90s, Hollywood was avoiding sex scenes because of the AIDS epidemic.
7) Eyes Wide Shut
It is a story of a doctor Bill and his wife Alice. Things change when her wife admits having sexual fantasies about a man whom she locked eyes with while they were vacationing. She told him that, she had considered leaving Bill and her daughter.
After hearing this Bill looks for some sexual encounter and stumble upon an underground group of people who practice all sort of sexual stuff. This movie stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

8) American Psycho
American Psycho is the crime drama starring Christian Bale. It is the story of a wealthy New York City investment banker. He is very successful, wealthy and as the name suggests unstable.
The movie has a lot of sex scenes, nudity, gore, blood, and violence. You wouldn’t want to see this one with your parents.
9) Gone Girl
Gone Girl is one of my favorite films because of the intense story, relatable characters and impactful performances by the cast members. Directed by David Fincher this is the kind of mystery, thriller you would expect from him. When Nick Dunne’s wife disappears suddenly things start to come crashing down.
Initially thought as a kidnapping but later people think it is a murder and he staged a kidnapping. You have to see the movie yourself to appreciate the awesome storyline.
Gone Girl has a lot of full nudity, violence, and harsh language. Which makes it number 9 in the list of top Hollywood movies you should watch alone
10) The Girl with Dragon Tattoo
The girl with a dragon tattoo. Another great gem by David Fincher. Like all his other movie this one is also filled with mystery, drama, nudity, sex, and violence. It is the story of a computer hacker and a journalist and how she helps him find a person who was missing for nearly forty years.
This movie has a rape scene and other dark stuff which isn’t suitable for family viewing. Among the hottest movies you should never watch with your parents.

Don Jon is the story of Jon who stays in New Jersey and dedicated to family, friends, and church. But he has a problem, he is a porn addict. Yeah, that’s the premises of the movie.

21) Sausage Party
Although the Sausage Party is an animated movie, it doesn’t mean you could enjoy this with your parents or kids for that matter. Many parents made a grave mistake by taking their kids to watch this movie in the theaters.
