Someone says the word “fuck” or a variation of “fuck” 2.81 times per minute in Martin Scorsese’s latest film, “Wolf of Wall Street.”

That’s 506 times during the movie’s three-hour run, Variety reports, breaking Spike Lee’s 1999 record with 435 F-bombs in “Summer of Sam.”

“Fuck” might just be one of Scorsese’s favorite words. His movies “Casino” and “Goodfellas,” 422 and 300 “fucks,” respectively, make the list of the top 20 movies with the highest usage of the word “fuck.”

For your frame of reference, this 98-word article contains seven uses of the word “fuck” — that’s one “fuck” for every 14 words.
