Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” is all about excess. From orgies on a plane to cocaine and cash (or “fun coupons” as Leonardo DiCaprio’s character calls them), the financial drama thrives in taking it up a notch. So it should be no surprise that Paramount’s R-rated film sets the all-time record for the use of the f-word.
According to Wikipedia, the word “fuck” is used 506 times over “The Wolf of Wall Street’s” 180-minute running time. Previously, the record for a non-documentary was Spike Lee’s 1999 film “Summer of Sam” with 435 instances. “Wolf of Wall Street” isn’t the first time Scorsese, 72, has dabbled in the profane. The Oscar-winning director has two other projects in the f-word top 20, including “Casino” (422) and “Goodfellas” (300).
I'm surprised a Quentin Tarantino movie doesn’t hold this record because the f-word is his second favorite word behind the n-word. I’m also pretty surprised this record hasn’t been broken by a guy who has to play the romantic love interest in a Sarah Jessica Parker movie. But I guess you can’t count them if they’re not in the script and just screamed into a pillow.
