The Wolf of Wall Street, a tale of unadulterated vice directed by Martin Scorsese, includes 'more utterances of the f-word than any other non-documentary film in cinema history' (via Slashfilm).

Based on the real life Jordan Belfort played by ()- who was at one time worth billions- led a life centered on drugs, prostitutes and unfathomable debauchery.

Slashfilm have stated that:

According to Wikipedia, the word “fuck” is used 506 times over The Wolf of Wall Street‘s 180-minute running time. Previously, the record was held by Spike Lee’s 1999 drama Summer of Sam with 435 instances. Neither hold a candle to the single most “fuck”-filled movie of all time, which drops a jaw-dropping 857 f-bombs and is itself titled Fuck — but that’s because Fuck is a documentary about the use of the word “fuck.”

Other flicks rank high on the list of 'the most profane movies ever' where Casino includes 422 f***'s and Goodfellas has 300.

To be quite honest, the excessive use of expletitives will be the least of its viewers concerns, in comparison to the other forms of outrageous excess that occurs in The Wolf of Wall Street. What do you make of this: completely unnecessary or completely awesome?
