The 'F' word

The ‘F’ word — David Mamet’s ”Glengarry Glen Ross” has a propensity for vulgar language

Posted on

No one can accuse David Mamet of bowdlerizing the script for the screen version of Glengarry Glen Ross. In fact, we couldn’t help but notice the author’s propensity for one word: F@#* is used 128 times. The variations include:

F*@#: 41 times

F*@#ing: 54 times

F*@# you: 21 times

F*@#ed: 9 times

F*@#er: 2 times

Salute from Jack Lemmon’s middle digit: 1 time
