‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Sets Movie F-Word Record (Video)
Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” is over the top. When it comes to dishonesty, drugs and sex, the financial drama revels in taking it up a notch.
So it should be no surprise that the R-rated film sets the all-time record for the use of the f-word.
In director Martin Scorsese’s latest hit, the ‘f-word’ is used 506 times during the 180-minute running time. The previous 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 has dabbled in the profanity. The Oscar-winning director has two other projects in the f-word top 20, including ‘Casino (422) and ‘Goodfellas’ (300).
