This week, I investigated the claim that The Wolf of Wall Street is the sweariest movie of all time, by counting all 544 (roughly speaking) F-words. (Movies like Goodfellas and Pulp Fiction only have about half as many.) Now, Slacktory’s Zach Prewitt has dutifully compiled all the fucks, motherfuckers, and Emperors of Fucksville into this 4 minute 30 second supercut.
Prewitt’s final total is slightly lower than mine—he counts only 522, perhaps leaving out some of the less audible F-bombs—but this should settle once and for all any question that the movie is one of the most profane in Hollywood history.
