Jack Walsh: If I hear any more shit outta you, I'm gonna bust your fuckin' head, put you back in that fuckin' hole, I'm gonna stick your head in the fuckin' toilet bowl, and I'm gonna make it stay there!
In second film of The Hunger Games, District 7 Victor Johanna Mason delivers an epic (and censored) one on live-television when she's forced into the Third Quarter Quell. And interviewer Caesar Flickerman doesn't even know how to respond to it.
Johanna: The deal was that if I win the Hunger Games, I get to live the rest of my life in peace, but now you want to kill me again. Well, you know what? [beep] THAT! AND [beep] ANYONE THAT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!
Forrest Gump: According to Forrest, Abby Hoffman enjoyed dropping these at the Vietnam War protest rally, and everyone at the rally enjoyed hearing him dropping them. As the film is rated PG-13, however, all but one of his F-bombs are censored by mike feedback.
According to imdb, the narrative film with the most usage of the word "fuck" is Mutilation Mile, with an estimated 664.
Dwayne: You know what? Fuck beauty contests. Life is one fucking beauty contest after another. School, then college, then work... Fuck that. And fuck the Air Force Academy. If I want to fly, I'll find a way to fly. You do what you love, and fuck the rest.
Rufus: And if you clean up your language, I just might put in a good word for you too.
The Boondock Saints has its protagonists engaging in this all the time, the most hilarious instance being Rocco's reaction to the Copley Plaza massacre used as the page quote.
Ditto for Scarface (1983). See here (NSFW by a longshot!) The special edition DVD even has a counter in the special features that tallies up how many F-Bombs Tony or one of the other characters let loose in the movie, along with how many bullets are fired. Several videos like this have since become an internet meme.
The Polish dub has to be heard to be believed, as it quite noticeably doesn't feature any swearing stronger than the equivalent of "bloody hell".
The first time it aired on commercial TV, my first reaction was how they could do it without a 2 hour long bleep.
Although this is partly the actors' fault, because if you compare the screenplay as originally written to a transcript of what they actually say in the film, the usage of "fuck" increased by some 400%. It would seem that if the actors were having trouble remembering their exact lines, the general solution was to swear more to cover it up.
And Reservoir Dogs also tends to use the form "fucking", which makes it just funny after about the fifth time.
Mish-mash cussing became increasingly predominant for the dialog of the Blade trilogy. Made for some very entertaining exchanges in the second movie Blade II, just plain ridiculous in the third. Although Blade: Trinity did give the world the glory that is "cock-juggling thundercunt".
In Jumping Jack Flash, Whoopi Goldberg says fuck and shit almost every fucking goddamn shitting sentence.
3D Movie Maker gives us this wonderful example of the versatility of the F word in Will Maltby's Diabolical Delightment; "Shut the fuck up you fucked up fuck!"
Frank Booth from the film Blue Velvet is (almost) the only character in the entire film to use the word. He makes up for it by saying (more like yelling) the F word in almost every line that he gives, often more than once. (The infamous line "Fuck you, you fucking fuck" comes from this movie.)
At Frank's insistence, Ben offers Frank the toast, "Here's to your fuck."
Also, the rants of Leo Getz in the second, third and fourth Lethal Weapon films:
Leo (in 2): They FUCK YOU at the drive-thru, okay? They FUCK YOU at the drive-thru! They know you're gonna be miles away before you find out you got fucked! They know you're not gonna turn around and go back, they don't care. So who gets fucked? Ol' Leo Getz! Okay, sure! I don't give a fuck! I'm not eating this tuna, okay?
Leo (in 3): Well, you know what I say? They FUCK you in the hospital! First they drug you, then they FUCK you! And when they're done FUCKING you, along comes the insurance company and FUCKS you some more! Ten dollars for a FUCKING aspirin and it's not even covered.
Leo (in 4): They FUCK you with cell phones. That's what it is. They're FUCKIN' you with the cell phone. They love it when you get cut off. Y'know why, huh? You know why? 'Cause when you call back—which they know you're gonna do—they charge you for that FUCKIN' first minute again at that high rate.
Ted Bukovsky, after narrowly avoiding a near-death catastrophe, unleashes one of the most glorious Cluster Bombs in cinematic history on his 'partner' - with each instance being bleeped out by a different sound effect.
Four Weddings and a Funeral's first dozen words are all "fuck", as the main character attempts to reach a wedding after oversleeping and his car won't start, then drives past his exit. He oversleeps for another wedding and with him seeing no cabs and finding his car clamped, finally runs through London in an attempt to arrive in time.
Also this, when Charles makes an unpleasant discovery on his wedding day:
Charles: (Looking upward) Please forgive me for what I am about to say in Your house. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. Fuck. Fuck. (He notices a priest watching him.) Sorry, I was just - I was warming up. I was doing some vocal exercises.
Priest: Oh - oh yes. I do those myself.
Priest: But with different words, obviously.
Priest: Bit heavier on the alleluias.
They actually had to film large parts of the movie twice, once with the swearing toned down, so it could be played on American TV and on planes. Apparently executives even tried to get rid of a reference to a priest having an "enormous erection" as it wouldn't be allowed on US TV!
Although the movie as a whole is fairly tame, one scene of one "cluster bomb" was the sole reason Planes, Trains and Automobiles received an 'R' rating. In his review of the movie, Ebert described it as a "verbal symphony for the f-word."
"You can start by wiping that fucking dumb-ass smile off your rosy fucking cheeks. Then give me a fucking automobile. A fucking Datsun, a fucking Toyota, a fucking Buick. Four fucking wheels and a seat... I don't care for the way your company left me in the middle of fucking nowhere with fucking keys to a fucking car that isn't fucking there. I didn't care to fucking walk down a fucking highway and across a fucking runway to get back here to have you smile at my fucking face. I want a fucking car right fucking now."
Osbourne Cox: Why the fuck would they go to the Russians? Why the fuuuuck?
All the kids in A Serious Man love the word "fuck", but one kid, credited as "Cursing Boy on Bus" in particular says it in all but one line:
Cursing Boy on Bus: What happened? Ronnie: Rabbi Turchik took his radio. Had money in it. Cursing Boy on Bus: That fucker! Danny: Yeah. I think he said he was confiscating it. Cursing Boy on Bus: He's a fucker! Where do you get your money? Ronnie: Mike Fagle's gonna kick his ass. Last week he pounded the crap out of Seth Seddlemeyer. Cursing Boy on Bus: He's a fucker! Ronnie: Fagle? Or Seth Seddlemeyer? Cursing Boy on Bus: They're both fuckers!
A 1997 British film called Nil By Mouth uses the word 428 times.
The most instances of the word used in any movie is a 2005 documentary named (guess what?) Fuck, which is about the word itself. It uses the word over eight hundred times, roughly nine a minute.
"What do you think this is a fucking Regency costume drama?! This is a government department, not a fucking Jane fucking Austen novel! Allow me to pop a jaunty little bonnet in your purview and ram it up your shitter with a lubricated horse cock!"
Ralph FiennesEveryone of In Bruges. As Colin Farrell (in real life, not averse to the occasional Cluster F-Bomb himself) puts it, "Geez, he swears a lot."
And that was just in the phone message he left!
The DVD has a special feature called "Fucking Bruges" that shows a montage of just the 'Fuck's in the movie. It lasts six minutes.
Pete: It's four in the fucking morning! Shaun: It's Saturday! Pete: No, it's not. It's fucking Sunday. And I've got to go to fucking work in four fucking hours 'cos every other fucker in my fucking department is fucking ill! Now can you see why I'm SO FUCKING ANGRY? Ed: Fuck, yeah!
Amusingly, they were mandated to do a different version of this scene for the airplane version. After some wondering of how in the world they were going to do this, they just replaced every use of the word "fuck" with the word "funk". The name of the special feature on the DVD with this? "Funky Pete".
Every scene involving Jim Carrey's "sons" in Me, Myself & Irene. The hook being that the foul-mouthed triplets have genius IQs, but swear like gangsta rappers.
A slight twist occurs in the Amazing Yen from the Ocean's Eleven trilogy. Almost all of his speech is in Mandarin Chinese, but the few English lines he does have are nearly all swear words.
The Guy Ritchie films. The Snatch DVD has an easter egg: when opened, it asks "Are you easily offended?" If no is picked, this shows up. With "yes" instead, the video is shown with profanity BLEEPing censored (turning it even more hilarious).
Wilt: In one scene, a construction worker who witnessed a woman's body it's really an inflatable sex doll being dumped into a hole and covered with concrete is talking to a cop:
Construction worker: You could see her fucking limbs... all fucking twisted... it were fucking horrible. Cop:(to his subordinate) Make a fucking note of that.
Virtually every song in Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny features creative and varied use of swearing, mostly 'fuck'. And yes, they rhyme "rock" and "cock" at least thirty times across the whole movie.
El Wray: I like how you say "fuck". Cherry: Good. Fuck you. (later) Cherry: You were being an unbelievable dick. I was walking out on you. I was cold, I took your fucking jacket. So if you're going to go on one of your psycho-obsessive controlling rants about a fucking jacket, then fucking take it because I'd rather fucking freeze than fucking hear about it one more time. El Wray:(long pause) Did you find what was in the jacket? Cherry: Fuck, no.
An early shootout in Shoot 'em Up takes place on the roof of "FAULK TRUCK & TOOL". The hero shoots out letters in the neon sign until only "F_U_K __U__" is left, "TOOL" being temporarily covered. The camera lingers on this for a moment... and the hero says "Fuck you, you fucking fuckers." (The villain replies by shooting out the final L.)
Twin Town. 318 "fuck"s in 99 minutes. Well, it is set in effing Swansea.
Se7en was reeeeeally bad with this. The F-word and its derivatives were said over 70 times, mainly by Mills.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil has a hilarious scene in which the two main characters, one deaf and one blind, have a misunderstanding with a police officer. This results in her repeating "shit" some twenty times in rapid succession.
Possibly parodied in Star Trek IV, in which Kirk explains how in the late 20th century, "Nobody pays attention to you unless you swear every other word. You'll find it in all the literature of the period." He cites the works of Jacqueline Susann and Harold Robbins as examples, to which Spock replies "Ah, the giants."
Les Grossman: Take a big step back... and literally FUCK YOUR OWN FACE! I don't know what kind of pan-Pacific bullshit power play you're trying to pull here, but Asia, jack, is my territory. So whatever you're thinking, you'd better think again, otherwise I'm gonna have to head down there and I will rain down an ungodly fucking firestorm upon you! You're gonna have to call the fucking United Nations and get a fucking binding resolution to keep me from fucking destroying you. I am talking scorched earth, motherfucker! I will massacre you! I WILL FUCK YOU UP!
On that note, Kim Jong-IL's rant when he dumps Hans Blix in the shark tank.
The original script for The Matrix was toned down from this to a Cluster S Bomb (Storm?), with Trinity's sixth or seventh line being a heartfelt utterance of the word.
The opening scene of The Way of the Gun features a particularly memorable speech from Sarah Silverman.
Raving Bitch: Hey dickless, get off the fucking car! Hey fucksuck, get your slippery fucking ass off the car! Listen to me, get off the fucking car with your fucking ass!
Then they answer her back, and she gets really abusive.
In Ocean's Twelve, when Benedict is tracking everyone down, there's a scene where Basher is in a studio with a guy, listening to the final of a song. The song is full of bleeps, and Basher and the guy start arguing, their speech full of bleeps, especially the bit where the guy goes,
"Well, if you want a * bleep* single on the * bleep* radio, you'll have to make some changes!" (and then Basher goes) "Well that's * bleep* , isn't it? That's really * bleep* ." (then Basher notices that Benedict's mooks have entered the studio) "Oh, * bleep* ."
Jay: Man, my balls are shaved, my pubes are trimmed, I'm ready to fuckin' rock this shit! Jonah: What the fuck, man? If I go in there and see fuckin' pubes sprinkled on the toilet seat, I'm gonna fuckin' lose my mind! Last time I went to the bathroom, Jay, I took a shit and my shit looked like a fuckin' stuffed animal!
Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) himself has one:
Ben Stone: Hey Doc Howard, Ben Stone calling, guess what the fuck's up? Allison is going into labor and you are not fucking here, you know where you're at? Your at a fucking bar mitzvah in San Francisco you motherfucking piece of shit, and you know what I'm gonna have to do now? I'm going have to kill you, I'm gonna pop a fucking cap in your ass. You're dead, you're Tupac, you are fucking Biggie you piece of shit, I hope you fucking die or drop the chair and kill that fucking kid... I hope your plane crashes, peace fucker!
Axel: Jesus Christmas! Holy Jesus goddamn! Holy Jesus jumping Christmas shit!
The Taking Of Pelham 123 has John Travolta's character saying "Motherfucker" seemingly every 5 minutes. Granted, its not as bad as some of the other examples, but its enough to warrant a response of "what the fuck is he doing up there?" due to the simple fact that he does it for no reason. Also, the amount of birds flipped at people that characters either can't see or do not necessarily exist (to the character's knowledge) is excessive.
The ever-amusing Spill Review crew comments on this in their review, at the very end.
Most fucking war movies in general, including Jarhead.
I Heart Huckabees begins with Jason Schwartzman firing off a cluster f-bomb.
So does Sideways.
Edward Norton delivers one of the best examples of a cluster f-bomb in 25th Hour as he "fucks" every racial group and person in all of New York City. Notably, it's to himself.
Norton: Fuck me? Fuck you! Fuck you and this city and everyone else in it.
Fuck yeah, that one is pretty fucking inspired. Fucking great performance, too.
You wouldn't expect a biopic about a famous Victorian author to feature one of these, but Wilde begs to differ. In a scene where Oscar has fallen ill, Bosie comes to visit him and starts flipping out, dropping the F-bomb in just about every sentence and even throwing Oscar's water basin to the floor.
Bosie: NOW WILL YOU SHUT UP ABOUT THE FUCKING WATER!
District 9's protagonist's vocabulary primarily consists of "fok" (fuck) and "fokken" (fucking). IMDB states that the F-bomb is dropped 137 times in the 112-minute film, which puts it in nearly the same category as Reservoir Dogs.
Hoffa features the F-word 153 times. This scene sums up perfectly.
Paul Vitti in Analyze This uses profanity freely. Best bit is when he's talking to a rival over the phone, trying to control himself... and bursts into:
You make one more move on me you motherfucker, I'll fucking cut your fucking balls off and I'll shove them up your fucking ass, I'll fucking bury you, I'll put fucking ice picks in your eyes, I'll chop your fucking eyeballs, I'll send them to your fucking family so they can eat them for dessert! You understand me?
There was a scene in a movie, I think it was Lord of War that includes the unforgettable line: "Fuck you, you fucking fuck! Fuck!"
Any movie in the Saw franchise. Nearly everyone uses Fuck in every sentence.
The Crank movies with Jason Statham are good at this, with many of the characters yelling at his character "FUCK YOU CHELIOS!" repeatedly through both movies.
The Devils Rejects uses it around 175 times. It's safe to say Bill Moseley is responsible for most of those.
Rob Zombie's Halloween II (2009), features a sequence where an ambulance containing Michael Myers' supposedly dead body crashes into a cow. While the driver is killed instantly, the other coroner spends the next 45 seconds repeatedly yelling nothing but the word FUCK! while trapped in the wreckage before Myers reanimates and shuts the guy up by decapitating him.
Virgil Brigman: Alright, breathe baby! Goddamn it, breathe! GODDAMN IT YOU BITCH YOU NEVER BACKED AWAY FROM ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE NOWFIGHT! *slaps her* FIGHT! *slaps her* FIGHT! RIGHT NOW! DO IT! *starts shaking her* FIGHT, GODDAMN IT!!! FIGHT!!! FIGHT!!! FIIIIIIIGHT!!!
Asia Argento in the movie B. Monkey also drops the infamous "Fuck you, you fucking fucker" line.
The film adaptation of Stephen King's novel Christine was famous for the number of F-bombs dropped (as well as other profanity used in general) at the time of its release (1983). It's far, FAR milder than many more-recent films, but upon release it actually set a record for most F-bombs in a single film.
In The Original Kings of Comedy, Bernie Mac ends his routine with a monologue that demonstrates the many and varied ways that one can use the word "motherfucker".
"You seen that motherfuckin' Bobby? That motherfucker owes me 35 motherfuckin' dollars! He told me he gone pay my motherfuckin' money last motherfuckin' week. I aint seen this motherfucker yet! I'm not gonna chase this motherfucker for my 35 motherfuckin' dollars. I called the motherfucker four motherfuckin' times, but the motherfucker won't call me back. I called his momma the other motherfuckin' day; she gonna play like the motherfucker wasn't in. I started to cuss her motherfuckin' ass out, but I don't want no motherfuckin' trouble. But I'll tell ya one motherfuckin' thing: the next motherfuckin' time I see this motherfucker, and he ain't got my motherfuckin' money, I'm gonna bust his motherfuckin' head!" And I'm out of this motherfucker!
The film The King's Speech has Colin Firth say fuck 42 times. In one single scenenote It is for this and this alone that the movie is rated R. If not for this one scene, the movie is a PG at worst.
Shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit. F-fornication. Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck fuck and fuck. Fuck, fuck, and bugger! Bugger, bugger, buggety buggety buggety fuck! Fuck — ass! Balls! Balls! Fuckety shit! Shit, fuck and willy! Willy, shit and fuck!! And ... tits.
As funny as it is the scene is a bit tragic since he's just realized he can only speak coherently when he's angry.
We killed it! We fucking... We fucking killed it. We killed it. Whoo! We fucking killed it. Huh? Who's your daddy now, motherfucker? Who's your daddy now, motherfucker? Hunt my dick, bitch!
Into The Wild. Chris goes on a profanity-laden rant after he fails to find any animals to hunt.
Spirtokouto (english translation: Matchbox) by Yannis Economides is essentially a gamimeno [=fucking] dictionary of swearing in the Greek language. The movie is good too
Dreadful horror film Catholic Ghoulgirls is guilty of this frequently, but one particular scene becomes almost incomprehensible due to it; an edited version can be seen about 1:25 into this video. The character seen spouting it rarely says anything else.
Am amusing subversion of this trope happens in Summer School, when the students realize their (unwilling) teacher isn't going to punish them for cursing, so commence to rattle off an avalanche of words like "shit", "dick", and even "jizzumhead" ... but no "fuck", because it's PG-13.
South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut has a spot in the 2001 Guinness Book of World Records for "Most Swearing in an Animated Film", with 399 bad words, 128 offensive gestures, and 221 acts of violence (altogether averaged out at one every six seconds). It also gave us the Uncle Fucka song.
Cartman even weaponizes this trope toward the end when his V-chip (which zaps him whenever he says a bad word) malfunctions, allowing him to unleash cuss-powered Shock and Awe upon the bad guys.
Hopscotch has Ned Beatty's character delivers gems such as, "Now I know what the FBI stands for: Fucking Ball-busting Imbeciles!"
Paul has many uses of the words "fuck", "shit", "cock", etc., most notably from the used-to-be-religious chick, who strings together many swear words in her sentences.
"Kissing A Fool" has David Schwimmer's character retorting to Jason Lee's comment about something being fair: "Fair? You're telling me that the girl I wanna marry is thinkin' about fucking my best friend?! Fuck fuckin' fair! Fuck you! Fuck her! Fuck everybody fair!"
The Paper has this wonderful example:
Henry Hackett: Really? Well guess fuckin' what? I don't really fuckin' care. You want to know fuckin' why? Because I don't fuckin' live in the fuckin' world, I live in fuckin' New York City, so go fuck yourself! [slams down telephone]
After telling San Diego to have a good night and then "go fuck [themselves]", Ron Burgundy is ejected from his role as lead newscaster. As he's being lead away, he loudly proclaims that he never uses the f-word...while accenting every other word with "fuck" (only in the unrated version of the movie).
Simultaneously inverted AND played straight in Ramona and Beezus. No actual curse words are used, but Ramona does unleash a cluster G-bomb. ("Guts! Guts Guts GUUUUTTTTTTTTS!")
The Wolf of Wall Street has 569 fucks spread across three hours, averaging three fucks a minute. To put things in perspective, the world-record holder for most uses of the word fuck in a movie is the above-mentioned Fuck}. Wolf of Wall Street has second place.
Vivian Wagner in Iron Sky has a hard time speaking without saying "fuck" every other word, unless, of course, she's talking to the President. And she's supposed to be in charge of the President's re-election campaign. She can't even say "United States of America" without putting the F-word in there twice. This is, probably, to compensate for the fact that almost no other character swears. The President herself might say "shit" once or twice, but that's all.
"In 22 seconds, I could break your fucking spine. In 22 seconds, I could pinch your head off like a fucking insect and spin it all over the fucking pavement. In 22 seconds, I could put 22 bullets inside your ridiculous gut. What I seem unable to do in 22 seconds is to keep you from fucking up my film!"
Vitaly after Yuri ruins his drawing of a detailed outline of Ukraine with cocaine on a table: "Fuck you, you fucking fuck! Fuck!"
Yuri while trying to encourage a pilot to land a cargo plane on the middle of a road in Africa: "You're the shit, Alexi! You're the shit, you're the shit, you're the shit!"
The film El Norte, which is about a brother and sister from Guatemala attempting to sneak across the Mexican-American border, actually uses the Spanish equivalent of this (the verb "chingar" and its various conjugations) as a plot point. An older character advises the brother that if they get caught, he should use this word a lot so that the Border Patrol will assume they are Mexicans, and deport them back to Mexico instead of all the way back to Guatemala.
