Posted on 01/04/2014 4:50:39 AM PST by ilovesarah2012
Martin Scorseses The Wolf of Wall Street is all about excess. From orgies on a plane to cocaine and cash (or fun coupons as Leonardo DiCaprios character calls them), the financial drama thrives in taking it up a notch.
So it should be no surprise that Paramounts R-rated film sets the all-time record for the use of the f-word.
According to Wikipedia, the word f*** is used 506 times over The Wolf of Wall Streets 180-minute running time. Previously, the record for a non-documentary was Spike Lees 1999 film Summer of Sam with 435 instances.

it’s ODUNGOWORLD...fundamentally changing America.
It seems that Hollywood writers are adjective challenged.
Something to be proud of, alright. </s>
Hollywood writers are no talent hacks these days. No imagination, no ability to think outside the box. They have a little formula they follow, and follow, and follow, and follow. They are the most tedious and boring people on the planet.
Thanks for the warning.
The bar has been lowered yet again.
A wit pointed out that when they specifically say “The F word”, there should intentionally be an effort to misinterpret it as being the ‘f’ word that is derogatory to homosexuals.
Even to the point of taking a small segment of the film that is laced with the ‘F’ word, and *dubbing* the ‘F’ word with the ‘f’ word. Which would create much hilarity among the hypersensitive.
It is a true story. Perhaps the guy used the “f” word a lot. Why do we want to rewrite history?
You make my point. They can’t even come up with a story, they have to copy a “true” story. Remakes and reality TV. Hollywood no longer is a world of magical imagination, it’s a collection of hacks.
Well your post is definitely accurate. I don’t think it will get any better.
Wow...I have only seen three on that list...
The Departed, Good Fellas, and The Commitments.
Of course, in “The Commitments” it was more like “foook”, so I guess they counted those too.
Some of those were BIG Hollywood movies, Oscar Winners, and so on, but I just never felt the need to watch them.
I have not paid to see a movie in years. I refuse to give money to people who insult my intelligence, my political views and my religion.
The only time Jesus Christ is used in movies these days is as a swear word to interject between F Bombs.
The F word is so common now it has lost all its shock effect. So instead of abandoning it these Hollywood hacks just use it more and more until it becomes a fill word so the boring plotless and characterless movie can make it to the requisite two hour mark.
“Hey, we need another 5 minutes. Throw is some extra F Bombs and a few more Jesus H Christ’s”
I would have guessed Goodfellas and Reservoir Dogs would be on top. My wife won’t watch those with me because the language and depictions of raw violence offends her.. she is a true lady so I won’t be seeing this one in the theaters.
Watch an old movie from the 40's and 50's and just LISTEN to the dialogue. It's a joy.
I must add that the MUSIC from “The Commitments” was quite nice.
Us Irish got soul.
The F-Word was once used to shock. That worked at one time. It cannot work 506 times in a single flick. So what is the new reason for this excessive use? I’m not sure but it certainly must reflect Scorseses view that the use of such language will appeal to his target audience.
He may be right.
I’m not a member of that target audience. I’m the one-F-Word-and-I’m-out-of-here type. I’ll never see this movie.
For some reason I thought that pic was from the movie, “Johnny Dangerously”!
Yep. Looked to find a movie that we could watch last night. Ended up playing a board game instead.
Probably is. I don’t watch movies...at least the more recent ones.
here’s a true story:
My sister, on a recent trip to Ireland, was hanging out with some real Irish folks in a pub, having a grand old time with a very garrulous older couple. The old man’s speech was heavily pepped with profanity, even though the subject matter was not angry or dirty at all.
My sister said, “My, you folks have a colorful way of talking.”
Whereupon the old Irishman’s wife whacked him soundly with her purse, and exclaimed, “I TOLD YE TEH WATCH YER FOOKIN MOUTH AROUND AMERICANS!”
Regarding Hollywood, the bar has been on the ground for a while.
The only movie I have ever seen where I thought the use of a slew of F Bombs was effective was the car rental scene in Planes Trains and Automobiles.
Where are the “F” and “N” words? After all, we do not want to rewrite history?
Far too many Hollywood writers and “comedians” are 13 year-olds who so liked the shocked reactions they got the first time they used these words and, lacking any other talent, have continued that mode ever since.
More than Goodfellas or Casino? Say it ain’t so.
Cowboy..."Dude, I just wish you wouldn't use so many cuss words."
Dude..." What the f*ck are you talking about."
This piece of garbage is bound to get numerous Academy Awards since it is an attack on capitalism.

Guess the yutes like the word it’s all they know.
Ha, hubby told me this yesterday. I can’t believe someone actually counts this.
There should be a movie Body Count Index to tally the number of killings by anti-gun Hollywood liberals.
I just watched Reds-2 and you'd have to Cray Computer to tally the total number killed by Hollywood Elites.

That doesn’t even count the audience members who object to the 3 hour run time. Thanks ilovesarah2012.
Here is a link to a post showing body count by actors.
It’s actually from Jonah Goldberg’s “links gal”, but I got to it via Ace of Spades (credit where due!)
I have no idea if this is accurate or not, but according to the list Ah-nold S. is the deadliest of them all. So, I guess he’s a deadly RINO?
"Why do you say F#%@ so much?" "....the most expressive word our language has."
Coach Bob Knight's favorite word - Warning - Uncensored.
That all aside, when the word is used all the time, I just start tuning it out. I do use word at times, usually when the idiot in chief is on the TV screen. I don't use it in front of women and children, or in a professional setting.
I got sucked into watching “We’re the Millers” movie this week by someone who thought it was a funny movie. It was the most disgusting failure of a movie I have ever seen. Why Jennifer Aniston would “star” in this trashy movie is beyond me. Eff this and eff that. It made me angry, and I stopped watching it after 20 minutes.
Hollywierd is up against a wall—the wall of porn-with-a-plot nudity. They are probing, for the eventual presentation of anything-goes, to the public, in prime time.
Thanks for the link.
Hollywood should realize most people who use the word a lot are in middle school and trying to be “cool”. It is very unbecoming in adults, especially so-called professionals. I am hardly ever around anyone who uses it so when I do hear it, it just turns my stomach. I’m not perfect, but I can certainly come up with better adjectives.
I noticed that Americas sweetheart Sandra Bullock took part in a swearfest movie, “the heat” a few months back. Ugh ugh ugh.
We walked out of the Millers movie. Disgusting.
Jennifer Aniston is not a moral person.
There are some movies that would be really good if not for all the profanity. I just don’t understand why they feel the need to throw in all the bad language. What’s the point?
‘The Blackboard Jungle’ is one of my favorites. Vic Morrow excelled as the bad boy Artie West.
And Clark Griswold's complete meltdown in the car in "Vacation". Hilarious.
