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
