Everyone seems to be talking about The Wolf of Wall Street right now, and it’s easy to see why. Despite all the delays and worries that it wouldn’t turn out well, the film is now receiving endless amounts of critical praise and audiences are absolutely loving it. It’s my personal favorite film of the year and I’m really hoping that it finally brings Leo the Oscar gold that he so badly deserves.
For those of you who have had the chance to see it, you’ll know that it certainly earns its R rating, with an excessive amount of sex, nudity and swearing. It’s so excessive, in fact, that it set a new record for the most “F bombs” in a major motion picture. The previous record was held by Spike Lee’s Summer of Sam, which used the word 435 times. The Wolf Of Wall Street has blown that number away, using the word “Fuck” an astonishing 506 times. In comparison, Martin Scorsese’s Casino used it 422 and Goodfellas dropped it 300 times.
Of course, this shouldn’t really bother anyone as profanity in movies isn’t a big deal these days, but still, it’s an interesting fact, one that hopefully won’t scare away voters come Oscar night.
