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.
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).
