This is how Adam Sandler and the Safdie Brothers win.
Adam Sandler‘s character Howie in the new A24 flick Uncut Gems gives too many “f—s,” literally. In a recent update on the list of movies with the most F-bombs, the acclaimed film now stands at seventh all-time with 408, or three a minute.
The update was made by Screen It!, a movie review website for parents. The full scoreboard can be found on Wikipedia. Currently, the new Safdie Brothers film is just behind Martin Scorsese’s 1990 film Casino with 422 “fun coupons.” If you took out the documentaries about swear words on the list — Swearnet: The Movie is technically first with 935 instances of the word — Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street would stand at first in the all-time movie f—athon with 569 in 180 minutes.
Uncut Gems opened nationwide Dec. 25, featuring Adam Sandler as a wheeling-and-dealing New York Diamond District jeweler. Sandler’s latest turn in the dramatic genre is currently earning rave reviews and even breaking box office records.
Sandler did have some help reaching the top of the f-train. The movie also stars former NBA All-Star Kevin Garnett, Lakeith Stanfield, Idina Menzel, and Julia Fox.
The top ten movies with the most F-bombs include:
- Swearnet: The Movie (2014)
- F— (2005)
- The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
- Summer of Sam (1999)
- Nil by Mouth (1997)
- Casino (1995)
- Uncut Gems (2019)
- Straight Outta Compton (2015)
- Alpha Dog (2007)
- End of Watch (2012)
Dolemite Is My Name, the 2019 Netflix comedy starring Eddie Murphy, also made the updated list, landing at 95 of the top 141 films. Good Time, the Safdie Brothers’ previous film starring Robert Pattinson, is also on the board at 111th.
